The RED CARPET MARTINI
Perfect for watching all the Red Carpet shows and enjoying all the chatter about who's with who, who's wearing what and who's a possible winner, the Red Carpet Martini is a tequila based martini that deserves it's own little Oscar.
Here's some interesting Oscar Facts & Trivia:
- The official name of the golden statue is the Academy Award of Merit. Bette Davis makes the claim that she named the statuette after her first husband, bandleader Harmon Oscar Nelson.
- You cannot buy an Oscar. The winners or their heirs may not sell the statuettes without first offering to sell them back to the Academy for $1. If the winner does not agree to this stipulation the Academy keeps their statuette. Prior to 1950 this stipulation was not in place and Oscars fetched as high as six figures.
- In 1981, the Academy Awards were delayed for one day, due to the shooting of President Ronald Reagan.
- The first televised Academy Awards show was the 25th annual, held on March 19, 1953.
