EmptyTHE OSCARS GO TO …?
A judge ruled Monday that a jury should decide whether silent film star Mary Pickford signed away rights to sell two Oscars she was awarded. Three women who inherited the statuettes and a third one awarded to Pickford's former husband Charles "Buddy" Rogers had hoped to win a dismissal of a lawsuit filed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The Academy is seeking to block the public sale of the statuettes.
