How Oscar received its nickname is not clear.

奥斯卡不清楚怎么获得它的绰号。

There are legends, but the most well-known story is that an Academy worker, Margaret Herrick, said to her colleagues in 1931 that the bold head of the statuette looked like her uncle Oscar fromTexas.

有些传说,但最著名的故事是一个学院工人Margaret Herrick,在1931年对她的同事说,大胆的雕像像她来自德克斯州的叔叔奥斯卡。

So the Academy staff started to refer to it by this name.

所以学院职员开始参考这个名字。

Although the journalists used the nickname more and more during the late 1930’s, it has been used officially since 1939.

虽然在1930年末期间,越来越多的新闻记者使用这个昵称,但它被官方使用是从1939年开始的。

The statuette itself is 13.5 inches tall and weighs 8.5 pounds.

雕像本身高13.5英寸,重8.5磅。

It was designed by Cedric Gibbons, a fashion designer and sculpted by aLos Angelesartist, George Stanley.

它由时装设计师Cedric Gibbons 设计的,洛杉矶艺术家George Stanley雕刻的。

Each Oscar statuette, made inChicagoin the R.S. Owens Company, is made from copper and nickel silver, and finally covered with 24-karat gold.

每一个奥斯卡雕像,都是由芝加哥的the R.S. Owens公司制造的。它是由铜和镍银制成的,最后覆盖24K金。

It looks like a knight, holding a sword, standing on a reel of film.

它看起来像一位骑士握着一把剑,站在一盘影片上。

The five spokes of the film reel mean the five original branches of the Academy: actors, directors, producers, technicians and writers.
