The Oscars may be a symbol of Hollywood, but the statues are made right here in Chicago.

On Wednesday, workers at RS Owens and Company packed up the statues so they can be shipped to California. Then they'll be handed out to some of Hollywood's best and brightest later this month.

RS Owens has produced the statues for more than 65 years.
