This Oscar statue is definitely a hard partier.

Street artist Plastic Jesus placed a life-size Oscar statuette on Hollywood Boulevard at La Brea Avenue on Thursday morning, at the edge of where the street will be closed ahead of Sunday’s awards.

This year’s statuette is also a commentary on Hollywood culture, according to Nick Stern, a photographer who works with the artist.

“The piece is intended to draw attention to Hollywood’s hidden problem of drug addiction that effects hundreds of people in the showbiz industry and is largely ignored until the death of a high-profile A list celebrity,” Stern said in a statement on Plastic Jesus’ behalf to LAist.
