NASA telescope
The Oscar trophies are plated with the same gold as NASA's $8.9-billion James Webb Space Telescope, according to the space agency. NASA has been working with the US-based Epner Technology, which claims its gold plating would never flake off. The company also began gold plating the Oscar statuettes in 2016 after winners complained of gold coating wearing off.
