The Oscar awards are around the corner on February 26, 2012 at the legendary Kodak Theatre and everyone is buzzing about who will take the awards this year! The excitement comes with who will be wearing what, and which of their favorite movies will win. However, sometimes we forget about the iconic statue itself. Have you ever wondered what the actual Oscar Statue stands for and what it is made out of? Is it pure gold? The Oscar Statue is officially named the Academy Award of Merit and is one of nine types of Academy awards. The Oscar is made of "gold-plated britannium on a black metal base and it stands 13½ inches tall and weighs in at a robust 8½ pounds. The film reel features five spokes, signifying the five original branches of the Academy: actors, directors, producers, technicians and writers" (via Oscars.org).
Although it is not pure gold, it is still an exceptional piece of history. Will you be watching the Oscars? We know we will be at Cash4Gold!
