The Recognition Minute
OSCAR - A Trophy of Excellence and Merit February 27 2017, 0 Comments
It’s Oscar time again! The 89th time round, to be precise. And no less glitsy than the 88th. It red carpet time and time for actors and actresses to be recognised and awarded for their talent. The trophy: and Oscar Statuette.
This statuette is the most recognised trophy in the world.
The aims of the academy were set out in 1929. “How best to honour outstanding movie-making achievements and thereby encourage excellence in all facets of motion picture production.” It was a call to greatness for this industry and this golden award continues to call today.
The statuette is of a knight with a sword, standing on a reel of film. Originally a flat design by MGM art director Cedric Gibbons, then turned into a three dimensional trophy that we have to day.
