HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — A senior executive at the Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences (AMPAS) is at the center of scandal after being outed as a former softcore porn filmmaker for Playboy.

According to Deadline.com, Vicangelo Bulluck was hired last February at the prestigious Academy as its Managing Director for the new position of Outreach and Strategic Initiatives — the sixth highest rank in the Academy’s administration.

But Bulluck’s past has caused a dust up in Hollywood over the fact that someone with a porn past has crashed the hallowed halls of Oscar.

Bulluck produced and directed VHS videos in the ‘90’s that included T&A titles like “Playboy: The Best of Anna Nicole Smith,” “Playboy: The Best of Jenny McCarthy,” “Playboy: Women of Color,” “Playboy: Sisters” and more.

He also produced a documentary called “Playboy Girls of Radio: Talk, Rock and Shock” that one reviewer described as “50,000 watts of incredibly engineered T&A that adds new meaning to the phrase ‘drive time.’”

An AMPAS source told Deadline.com that although Bulluck’s past raised eyebrows, it didn’t come as a complete surprise despite the fact he left off his Playboy credits on his resume, because of his credentials as the former executive director of the Hollywood Bureau of the NAACP. “Besides, he was doing that producing 20 years ago. He was a struggling filmmaker,” the source said.

But when concerned female employees blew the whistle, AMPAS management confronted Bulluck who said, “If it was OK with the NAACP, I thought it’d be OK with you.”

When asked why AMPAS didn’t check Bulluck’s credentials on IMDB, Kimberly Congdon, the managing director of human resources responded, “What’s the IMDB?”
