📚 Why Academy awards called Oscars? 🤔🤔

▪ The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, got their nickname from American librarian and the Executive Director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Margaret Herrick, who saw the statuette and said it looked like her Uncle Oscar. The name caught on and has been used ever since. The official name of the award is the Academy Award of Merit, and the statuette depicts a knight holding a crusader's sword and standing on a reel of film.

Academy Awards Statuette

▪ The winners in each category receive a golden statuette, officially known as the “Academy Award of Merit,” but commonly referred to as the “Oscar.”

▪ The statuette, featuring a knight depicted in the Art Deco style, was created by Los Angeles artist George Stanley based on a design sketch by art director Cedric Gibbons.
