R.S. Owens’ Supplies Newly Designed Golden Globe Trophies
R.S. Owens, a division of St Regis Group (PPAI 230188), supplied newly designed trophies for Sunday night’s 76th Golden Globe Awards hosted by actors Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg.
The design team of the Chicago, Illinois, supplier worked with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s (HFPA) design firm, R/GA, to develop the new version of the Golden Globe trophy. The award honors the best in film and American television.
The final design weighs 7.8 pounds and is made of zinc, brass and bronze with a 24k brushed gold finish. In addition, a specially designed trophy was created for the Cecil B. DeMille Award and the new Carol Burnett Lifetime Achievement Award that utilized a black marble base. The base for all the Golden Globes was given a cylindrical design while keeping any changes to the trademark “Golden Globe” topper to a minimum.
For the first time, each trophy was be marked with a “proof of authenticity” at the show to guarantee that each award is officially sanctioned by the HFPA and is not a copy.
