Obama to win slew of Oscars and Grammys

After the recent announcement by the Nobel Committee that U.S. president Barack Obama would be receiving this year's prize for peace, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences have announced that they will follow suit in honoring the beloved president.

"Now that we realized we can give the president awards without him having really done much for them, we thought it would be nice to treat him to a few to say 'doin' good, buddy!'" Tom Sherak, the current president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said.

There is no word yet on which awards the academies will be awarding Obama, though Neil Portnow, the president of the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has a few ideas up his sleeve.

"I would like to see a win certainly for best children's album because he is so good with kids and possibly, well, no, definitely a win for album of the year cuz even though he hasn't produced any music as of yet, we're sure that if he did decide to put together a CD it would be freakin' awesome," Portnow said.

Though the Oscars and the Grammy award ceremonies will not take place until 2010, both presidents have said they are open to "just giving him the trophies now anyway."

No word yet on whether MTV will incorporate Obama into its VMA or MTV Movie Awards in 2010 as well, though it is rumored that VH1 is already courting the president for next year's DIVAS special.
