Crazy!! How Much Is An Oscar Worth?!?!

Have you ever wondered how much an Oscar was worth? That golden statue that every actor, director, producer, etc. dreams of holding one day. You would be surprised to know that the award cost only 400 dollars to manufacture, yet each year film distributors spend millions of dollars on advertisement campaigns to take one of those trophies home. Producers spend many millions of dollars on Oscar campaigns, hosting events, having screenings for academy members, even sending out copies of their movies to academy members. Some times the actors fly out to attend screenings and do Q&A’s. The producers of, “The Hurt Locker” which won best picture in 2010 are rumored to have spent 15 Million on their campaign (give or take a million). Hollywood spends about 150 Million dollars a year to win an Oscar. With that amount of money they could manufacture 375,000 of those golden statues a year.

‘Avengers’ Destruction Would Cost How Much In Real Life?!
