You ever wondered how much an Oscar Statuette actually worth?
The making of a statuette cost about $ 400, but selling this prestigious award can be earned only $1. All this is due to the strict rule of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Since 1950, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has made it a rule that anyone who tries to sell or auction off their award must first offer it to the academy for $1.
All winners sign an agreement pledging that they and their heirs would not sell the statuette without first offering her the Academy for $1.
