90届奥斯卡金像奖颁奖典礼将于本周日举行

He’s 13.5 inches tall and weighs a (relatively) hefty 8.5 pounds. More than 3,000 of him have been handed out since 1929. And he’s one of the world’s most famous statuettes. You’ll probably know him as Oscar.

他有13.5英寸(约合34厘米)高、(差不多)8.5磅重(约合3.9公斤)。自1929年,已有超过3000个他被颁出。他还是世界上最为著名的小雕像。你可能知道他叫奥斯卡”(Oscar)

The winners of Sunday’s 90th Academy Awards will proudly take home the bronze, 24-karat gold-plated figure of a knight holding a crusader’s sword, which is officially called the Academy Award of Merit.

周日,第90届奥斯卡金像奖的得主可能会骄傲地将这个24K镀金、手握一把十字军战士剑的骑士铜像带回家,该奖项的正式名称为学院功绩奖”(Academy Award of Merit)

So where did the name Oscar come from?

那么,奥斯卡这个名字是怎么来的呢?

One explanation is that Margaret Herrick, the librarian for the Academy who would later become its executive director, saw the statue in 1931 and said it reminded her of her uncle Oscar.

一个说法是美国电影艺术与科学学院的图书管理员玛格丽特·赫里克(Margaret Herrick)1931年看到了小金人,说它让她想起了自己的叔叔奥斯卡。赫里克后来成为了学院院长。

Others say the nickname came from the actress Bette Davis, who said the statue reminded her of her first husband, Harmon Oscar Nelson Jr.

也有人说,这一昵称源自演员贝蒂·戴维斯(Bette Davis),她说这个雕塑让她想起了自己的首任丈夫小哈蒙·奥斯卡·尼尔逊(Harmon Oscar Nelson Jr)

A third version has it that the Hollywood columnist Sidney Skolsky coined the term when he referred to an old vaudeville joke “Will you have a cigar, Oscar?” in a 1934 column.

第三个版本是,好莱坞专栏作家西德尼·斯科尔斯基( Sidney Skolsky)1934年的一篇专栏文章中,说到杂耍表演笑话你要抽根雪茄吗,奥斯卡?时造出了这个称呼。

No matter who was responsible, it clearly stuck. In 1939, the Academy officially adopted the name.

无论是因为谁,这个名字很显然就这么沿用下来了。1939年,学院奖正式采用了这个名称。
