How the Oscars are made

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO - If you’ve ever wondered how the Oscar statuettes are made, you have to go inside R.S. Owens & Company in Chicago.

Liquid metal is poured into a cast and moments later out comes the Oscar.  Every statuette is then inspected, polished, and given an individual serial number.

The whole process takes seven days from start to finish.  The Oscars are then shipped off to Los Angeles for Hollywood's biggest night of the year.  The Oscars will air this year on March 2nd.
