The 95th Academy awards will be held Monday morning IST and almost all of India is anxiously waiting to see how SS Rajamouli’s RRR will do at the Oscars. Surely, the film has piqued the interest of not only Telugu people but also Indians at large.
Here are some interesting tidbits about the event and how much it costs for any celeb to become eligible to make an appearance at the Oscars. Actors win Oscars for their acts on the big screen, but many times it can be more entertaining to check out which stars rule the red carpet.
While A-listers wear multi-million-dollar looks, the cost of dressing a first-timer at the Oscars is around $265,000. As the cost of a look varies based on the star’s stardom, the average cost of a look at the Oscars is about $1.5 million.
Cate Blanchett created Oscar history in 2014 when she wore an $18.1 million look. Her $100,000 Armani Privé gown was the least expensive element of her outfit — her jewelry alone was estimated to cost $18 million.
The Costlier and the bolder dress, the more limelight a star will get. The average cost of a 30-second advertising spot during the Oscars is around $2 Million. So if any celebrity has more than 75 seconds of solo camera time during the event then it is a lottery for him/her. Because for a commercial spot of the same duration at the same time, that celebrity would have had to pay more than $5 million.
