Did you know?

Listen up because there will be a quiz to follow.

Just kidding.

But I thought it would be fun to  share a little daily  knowledge with you guys, as we continue on the Road to the Oscars.

Today’s Oscar factoid:

Did you know that:

  • The Academy has presented a total of 2,701 Oscar statuettes
  • And each statuette weighs 8.5  pounds and stands tall at 13.5 inches
  • Fun fact: I weighed 6 pounds at birth, Oscar has me beat by 2.5 pounds.
  • The first recipient of the Oscar was Emil Jannings, who was named Best Actor in 1929 for his role in ‘The Way of All Flesh.’
