Oscar, god of the Academy Awards

Standard

“The images of their gods you are to burn in the fire. Do not covet the silver and gold on them, and do not take it for yourselves, or you will be ensnared by it, for it is detestable to Yahweh your Father. Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. Regard it as vile and utterly detest it, for it is set apart for destruction.” Deuteronomy 7:25-26

As early as the Old Kingdom, the god Ptah of Memphis formed close links with the funerary god of the city, Sokar, leading to the creation of the god Ptah-Sokar. In later times this god also acquired the characteristics of the god Osiris, resulting in the god Ptah-Sokar-Osiris. Statues of the god often formed part of the tomb equipment in the Late Period. They usually show a mummy with a human head standing on a base, wearing a crown with horns. Some statues have the head of a falcon. Occasionally, there is a small falcon on the base in front of the god and facing him. In a number of instances the statue of the god, or the base it stood on, hid a funerary papyrus. Often this is an example of the Book of the Dead, but other netherworld texts have also been found, for example the Amduat.

The Academy Awards, commonly known as The Oscars, are United States awards for achievements in the film industry. Winners are awarded a statuette, officially the Academy Award of Merit, that is much better known by its nickname ‘Oscar’. It is made of Britannia metal, plated in copper, nickel silver and 24-karat gold, and is 13½ inches high and weighs 3.8 kilogrammes.

This statuette represents Ptah-Sokar-Osiris, and every venue in which this ceremony/ritual is held becomes a temple for this pagan god; and everyone who participates in it — actively or passively — becomes a part of it and lends energy to it.
‘Oscar’ is an anagram derived from the names of these gods.

Oscar is the most recognised trophy in the world; the first statuette was awarded in 1929.

Sadly, actors/actresses, directors, producers, composers, et al, actually COVET this pagan symbol and take this detestable thing into their homes (see Monarch slaves, Movies and Magic and Age of the TV slaves).
