Yuri Irsenovich Kim is to be nominated for a posthumous Oscar and Life time achievement award at the forth coming 84th Academy Award Ceremony in February. Kim, who famously undertook the role of tyrant Kim Jong-il in the much troubled state of North Korea for 20 years, was found dead in his sea-front fortified compound last night.
Controversial reports have been circulating as to the innocence of Kim’s demise, but unfortunately the source of these claims had mysteriously checked out their hotel leaving everything in it including: wallet, phone, passport, car keys and car. Studio directors at the DPRK refused to corroborate these reports and rubbished them stating, under the watchful eye of suspected successor (stage-name) Kim Jong-un, “[These are] mindless attempts to destroy the reputation of the finest and most charismatically well styled gentleman ever to have lived since David Hasselhoff decided to Jump in [his] car.”
News of his nomination was received jubilantly within the Hollywood community. In an interview with actor Tam Cruise, Kim was heralded as an extremist. “Always pushing himself to the very edge, carrying his audiences to the absolute brink, be it kicking and screaming, or in the dead of night by armed men in balaclavas.”
Kim's most famous role caused much controversy amongst the western world, with his detailed depiction of the leftwing tyrant Kim Jong-il. Kim’s other credits include Supreme Leader in the 2009 box-office smash North Korea, the eponymous hero in Dear Leader as well as Inn Keeper in The Nativity Play which premiered at Primary School No. 4 in 1955.
Kim, or Yuri to his friends, who famously lead a very private life, refused to comment for Vanity Fare when news of a potential nomination started circulating back in 1991. But in an interview with NK News, Kim alluded to the huge strain the role was putting on him controversially ousting the costume department for lack imagination. “Everyone likes playing the villain from time to time, but it hasn’t helped my sex appeal like it did with Colin Farrell. I do find it hard to get to know girls, they don’t seem to believe that it’s just a role, I’m great fun really.”
The Academy decision to nominate Kim for the award posthumously has been received with an ecstatic reception. John Crook, actor and barman on Sunset Boulevard said “What a fantastic portrayal of right wing absurdist behaviour, we were all convinced he was a complete c***, I guess that’s what great acting is.”
