Why is it called the Oscars?

The Academy Awards trophy is officially called the Academy Award of Merit. But everyone knows the statue and ceremony by its unofficial nickname: the Oscars. Why is the statue called an Oscar? According to the official Academy Awards website, “While the origins of the moniker aren’t clear, a popular story has it that upon seeing the trophy for the first time, Academy librarian (and eventual executive director) Margaret Herrick remarked that it resembled her Uncle Oscar. The Academy didn’t adopt the nickname officially until 1939, but it was widely known enough by 1934 that Hollywood columnist Sidney Skolsky used it in a piece referring to Katharine Hepburn’s first Best Actress win.” Some other notes about the Oscars statue: it weighs just over eight-and-a-half pounds and stands 13 and a half inches tall.
