Each statuette takes 40 hours of work to make. A pantograph is used to add a serial number to the base of every Oscar.About 55 to 60 trophies are made every year under tight security by RS Owens.

Each Oscar is dipped in electrically-charged bins of molten copper, nickel, silver and 24-carat gold and then lacquered to a blinding shine.Every Oscar is closely inspected for defects - if it is not perfect, it is sliced in half and used for scrap.
