Artist Michael Moebius joins Marilyn, Elvis Presley and James Dean in receiving the Academy’s nod for their “unparalleled contributions to film and culture.”

‘Everything they did is connected to the entire Hollywood industry. They are like the gods of the entire industry and if you think about it, they all had a sad story.

“They were all violated by the entire industry.”

Michael launched a Change.org campaign in December to pressure the Academy to act, and as of this writing, the petition has been signed more than 56,000 times.

He said: “We are not judging the acting or the music, we are just saying that his achievements for the entire industry and his influence were tremendous.”

“I think everyone will be on our side to give back, because they entertained everyone.”

Michael launched his campaign after trying to imagine an image of Marilyn, James and Elvis accepting Oscars for one of their artistic projects.

When he finally realized that the three had been snubbed, he was motivated to take action and painted the three of them holding Oscars in a year-long imagined piece.

“I was going to paint them together in a beautiful, fun way on a Hollywood night, you know, having a good time,” he said. “But they’ve never been together like this.”

Michael’s business partner Kevin Esfandi is also involved in the ambitious campaign and has questioned why the trio have been “overlooked”.

Speaking to DailyMail.com, he said: “When you look at the list of posthumous Oscars given, lifetime achievement awards given and overall awards given by the Academy and recognitions given by the Academy, it’s quite a long list.”

But you don’t see any of these three names on it.

‘Are they not good enough? Is this an oversight? Are they already so big that it is not necessary to recognize them? But isn’t that a bit backwards? Is that the punishment of leadership? Are you so recognized that you don’t even receive an award?

He is hopeful that this will change soon, as he revealed the elaborate plan to get the Academy’s attention.

Every year in the run-up to the Oscars, Hollywood studios put up huge billboards all over Los Angeles with the nominated films along with the label “for Oscar consideration.”

“We’ve created very similar comparable ads,” he shared. ‘We have a few different digital billboards put up around the city and we’ll be linking them thematically to the Oscar season.

“We have these huge billboard trucks that have screens on all sides and in the back and we’re literally going to park them in front of their offices.”

Revealing how much money they are investing in the project, Kevin predicted between $20,000 and $30,000.

“It will be worth it,” he said enthusiastically. “It’s important to bring this to the Academy’s attention, and there’s really no better way to get their attention than to put it in front of their faces.”
