OSCAR STATUETTE FACTS

Official Name: Academy Award® of Merit

Height: 13½ inches

Weight: 8½ pounds

Number of Awards Presented: 3,140

The Academy Awards, more popularly known as the Oscars, are awards for artistic and technical merit in the film industry. Given annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the awards are an international recognition of excellence in cinematic achievements as assessed by the Academy’s voting membership. The various category winners are awarded a copy of a golden statuette, officially called the “Academy Award of Merit”, although more commonly referred to by its nickname, the “Oscar”. The statuette depicts a knight rendered in the Art Deco style.

92nd Academy Awards

The award was originally sculpted by George Stanley from a design sketch by Cedric Gibbons. AMPAS first presented it in 1929 at a private dinner hosted by Douglas Fairbanks in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in what would become known as the 1st Academy Awards. The Academy Awards ceremony was first broadcast by radio in 1930 and was televised for the first time in 1953. It is the oldest worldwide entertainment awards ceremony and is now televised live worldwide. It is also the oldest of the four major annual American entertainment awards; its other three equivalents – the Emmy Awards for television, the Tony Awards for theater, and the Grammy Awards for music – are modeled after the Academy Awards.

The 92nd Academy Awards ceremony, which honors the best films of 2019, will be held on February 9, 2020. The ceremony will again be broadcast on ABC. It will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, for the 18th consecutive year

62nd GRAMMY Awards®. Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020, CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards®. Music’s Biggest Night® returns to Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020, and will broadcast live on the CBS Television Network at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. 

We are delighted to host the world’s premier music event back in our hometown and look forward to celebrating the remarkable musical contributions made by songwriters, producers, engineers, mixers, and recording artists.

As always, GRAMMY® season will kick off with a series of events that showcase various genres of music, educational programs, and our charitable initiatives. We look forward to working with our Los Angeles partners to produce some remarkable and unforgettable events.

Ricky Gervais will return to host the 2020 Golden Globes Awards, Sunday January 5th. The telecast will broadcast live from the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles starting at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST on NBC.

While his previous stints haven’t been universally acclaimed, Gervais’ penchant for off-color jokes and celebrity roasts do have tendency to go viral.

The top film nominees for the 2020 Golden Globes are Marriage Story, which picked up six nominations, and The Irishman, which garnered five. For television, The Crown, Fleabag and Succession all picked up multiple nods.

131st ROSE PARADE – NBC

January 1, 2020 | 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM | Orange Grove Blvd. & Colorado Blvd. Pasadena, CA

The 131st Rose Parade begins at 8 AM on January 1, 2020, and will feature floral floats, spirited marching bands and high-stepping equestrian units along the 5 1/2 mile route down Colorado Blvd. Experience—in person—the magic of New Year’s Day in an unrivaled celebration, exclusive to the streets of Pasadena.

About the Show

Featuring lavish floral floats, high-stepping equestrian teams, marching bands from across the globe, a star-studded lineup of talent, hundreds of thousands of spectators lining the streets and millions more watching the telecast worldwide, “The Tournament of Roses Parade” is the most popular New Year’s Day celebration in the world. A grand tradition in every sense of the word and nicknamed “The Granddaddy of Them All,” NBC has been broadcasting this spectacular New Year’s Day parade for 92 years, beginning on radio in 1927 and then televising the event beginning in 1954. Enjoyed for generations and celebrated by audiences young and old, “The Tournament of Roses Parade” is the perfect for way for you and your family to ring in the New Year.

Two-hour LIVE special.

THE ROSE PARADE – AN ICONIC TRADITION

For millions of people around the world, the Rose Parade is an iconic New Year’s Day tradition.

The Rose Parade travels 5 ½ miles down Colorado Blvd. and features four types of entries: floral-decorated floats entered by a participating corporation, non-profit organization or municipality, equestrian units, bands, and Tournament Entries. Rose Parade participants have long histories with the Tournament of Roses and keep the traditions alive.

The earliest Tournament of Roses welcomed 3,000 spectators to its first parade filled with beautiful, horse-drawn carriages covered in flowers. More than a century later, the parade floats are a marvel of state of the art technology, all tucked away beneath flowers and other all-natural materials.

ROSE PARADE HISTORY

PARTICIPANTS

Each year more than 80,000 hours of combined service are supplied by 935 volunteer members of the Tournament of Roses Association. Nicknamed “White Suiters” because of the distinctive white suits every volunteer wears, these community-spirited men and women give up their evenings, weekends and holidays to ensure the success of the Rose Parade® and Rose Bowl Game®.

2020 ROSE PARADE THEME – THE POWER OF HOPE

The 2020 theme, “The Power of Hope,” celebrates the influence of optimism and hope.

The belief that what is wanted can be attained. From the struggles of those who came before us to dreams yet fulfilled, hope is more than simply the possibility of fulfillment. Hope is dignity and respect, joy and happiness, aspiration and achievement. Hope never, ever quits. Through hope, we can aspire to be our best and in turn inspire those around us to reach higher.

With hope – anything, in fact, everything is possible.

Float Design

This category showcases attractive, visually well-balanced floats that over a creative treatment of the designer’s idea. The floats are in line with the parade’s theme and include the use of animation.

Floral Presentation

This category provides a visual balance and cohesive mix of floral and non-floral materials. The floats are predominantly floral in appearance and display an abundance of flowers.

Entertainment Value

This category creates a dramatic impact by creatively using additional elements to advance the design concept. Additions may include, but are not limited to, float riders, outwalkers, pyrotechnics, and showmanship.
