Math professor Nakia Rimmer’s lecture recordings were a smash success at the 91st Academy Awards last night in Los Angeles. The recordings were nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Actor. They won them all.  

“Those lecture recordings literally saved my GPA,” said junior CIMS major Armie Mann, who is very bad at math. 

“When I realized I would have to take a math class at Penn I was so, so worried. I’ve heard some horror stories about math classes here, and I didn’t think I was going to be able to understand anything in class. I really, really can’t do math.”

“Without Professor Rimmer’s lecture recordings I would have failed 114. I’m so excited for him.”

Under the Button sat down with the President of the Academy John Bailey to get his take. 

“I mean, come on. This was a foregone conclusion. I’m not supposed to say this, but there was never really any doubt in my mind that Mr. Rimmer would win this. His lecture recordings are absolutely extraordinary.”

“The plot was just so, so exciting. So many plot twists. When the derivative of e^x turned out to be e^x, my mind was blown.”
