Are you ready for the Oscars tonight? I was curious on the history of the statue so of course what do you do, Google it! Some fun facts; the statue stands 13.5 inches tall and weighs 8.5 pounds; was designed by Cedric Gibbons of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and sculpted by artist George Stanley; and features a knight holding a crusader’s sword, standing on a reel of film. If you would like to learn more you can visit the Oscar website to read about the history, like how it got its name.
