Jerry Lewis: Hey, Oscar! 2009 fine art print / edition of 40 / $160.00 each
On February 22, 2009, Jerry Lewis received his first and only Oscar. After 60 years in films—his first, My Friend Irma, with Dean Martin, was released in 1949—The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences presented Jerry an award for his "humanitarian efforts [that] have brought credit to the industry." Eddie Murphy handed the Jean Hersholt statuette to Jerry; the audience stood and applauded; and Jerry delivered a gracious, succinct acceptance of 116 words, six of which were "the humility I feel is staggering."

What everyone else felt was best expressed by the sentiment printed on the t-shirt Stella McCartney wore to her dad's induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: "About Fucking Time."

Acknowledging Jerry's heroic efforts in fighting Muscular Dystrophy is not the same as acknowledging his monumental contribution to motion pictures. Let's be clear: Jerry Lewis still hasn't received an Oscar for his film work.
