So have you ever thought: “how much is that Oscar statue really worth?” Every year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hands out Oscars, 13-inch statues made of gold-plated pewter and worth about $500. But it’s worth a lot more to the movie studios & actors who win an Oscar. A Best Picture winner can expect an average of 21% increase in revenues. More for the actors who also receive an Oscar for Best Actor/Actress & supporting roles. In plain English millions & millions of dollars! So, that little 13″-inch statue is worth a heck of a lot more than $500! Enjoy the Oscars on Sunday 5:30pm on ABC. Vic KOLA Face Book here.
