 The various category winners are awarded a copy of a golden statuette, officially called the “Academy Award of Merit”, which has become commonly known by its nickname “Oscar”.

In 2013, the Academy Awards were officially rebranded as simply The Oscars, after the famed statuette that winners receive.

The sculpture was originally created by George Stanley.

It’s called ‘The Oscars.’ But how did the statuette get its nickname in the first place?

The popular theory is that the nickname for the Academy Award of Merit (as the statuette is officially known) was coined by Academy Award librarian and future Director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Margaret Herrick.

The story goes that when Herrick first saw the statue in 1931, she said that it looked like her Uncle Oscar and the name has just stuck since.

The awards ceremony was first broadcast on radio in 1930 and televised for the first time in 1953.

It is now seen live in more than 200 countries and can be streamed live online.
