The Emmy Awards are Sunday. Chicago’s R.S. Owens & Company is busy making the Emmy statues. It takes five hours to make each award. The $400 statue is coated in copper, nickel, silver and gold. If the statue was made of solid gold it would be worth $153,000. The finished Emmy weighs 6.5 pounds. A clear coat finished is applied to keep the statue from rusting.

The Emmys air this Sunday night on FOX
