NOT AS MUCH AS YOU THINK...

Ever wonder if those gold statues all the stars get are actually worth anything?

The 24 karat gold-plated Oscar statue is worth $629 and is a little over 12' tall.   Weighing in at 8.5 pounds, it's no wonder pretty much everyone who receives one is surprised by the sheer weight of the statue.  

All in all - they'll drop a somewhere in the ballpark of $42 million on the whole ceremony.  That includes $30,000 on the RED CARPET...that's the actualy carpet, not the whole setup with cameras and lights.  The ACTUAL 16,500 square foot RED CARPET COSTS $30,000.  

OH, and the after party?  It's not free.  It costs roughly $120,000 per couple to attend the lavish Governor's Ball.
