As we movie buffs prepare for the Super Bowl of filmmaking on Sunday night, dozens of southern California drug dealers are scrambling to make sure each Oscars after-party is properly stocked and supplied with the right batch of actor-loving drugs.

It’s no secret that Hollywood loves to party. Even though actors pretend to be perfect for the public relations machine, they have millions of dollars, worldwide fame, and tons of free time. Who could blame them for having crippling addictions?

Street artist “Plastic Jesus” has decided to honor their habitual drug use with a life-sized Academy Award statue sitting on Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, right at the edge of the award’s street closure map. This particular Oscar looks similar to the award the best and brightest actors, writers, and directors will be taking home Sunday night, with one slight modification:


That right there, my friends, is a giant Oscar on all fours snorting two lines of coke. How appropriate.

From LAist:

“The piece is intended to draw attention to Hollywood’s hidden problem of drug addiction that effects [sic] hundreds of people in the showbiz industry and is largely ignored until the death of a high profile A list celebrity,” photographer Nick Stern, who works with Plastic Jesus, offered up in a statement on behalf of Plastic Jesus.

Meryl Streep doing keg stands and making out with Helen Mirren as Ben Affleck and Mark Wahlberg high-five. Johnny Depp feeling up a passed out Tim Burton in a smoke-filled room upstairs. The entire “Kung Fu Panda” cast and crew carrying in bags of freebase cocaine. Nobody letting Anne Hathaway past the front door. This is the Oscar after-party I like to imagine.

Showbiz sure does love its drugs.
