Obama / Biden Score Oscar

(MFNS) - LA - Through all the bad jokes, fake laughter and overdressed surgically enhanced pretenders, one award at the 86th Academy Awards brought the house to it's feet in the surprise announcement of the night's ceremonies.  

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences honored President Barack Obama with a little man of his own by winning a new category, "Best Actor Role in a Live Action Comedy" for his portrayal of a World Leader in the sequel to the popular "The Obama Administration", with this years hit "A Bus Full of Bozos."  

No surprise to anyone, Vice President Joe Biden grabbed the Oscar for "Best Supporting Actor Role in a Comedy.Academy spokesperson Marie Snodenburg told MFNS  "Joe Biden's body of work over the years made him a perennial shoe-in for the category." 

While Mr. Biden was voted his statue unanimously, the president narrowly edged out Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford, for his award.  Snodenburg said some voting members thought Mayor Ford was much more believable in his role as leader. 

This is believed the first time a comedy team has swept an entire category. 

Soon after the award ceremonies were over the White House announced that Russian president, Vladimir Putin, gave a congratulatory call to President Obama and told him he was thrilled for him and had parked two nuclear submarines off the East Coast of the U.S. in his honor.
