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.
