More trouble for the Oscars

Statuettes dipped from dock

First missing ballots — now missing statuettes.

A shipment of about 40 Oscars has apparently been stolen from the Roadway Express dock in a suburb of L.A. One insider stressed Thursday night that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences will have enough statuettes to accommodate all the winners at the March 26 ceremony.

The statuettes are manufactured by R.S. Owens in Chicago and were subsequently shipped here.

Acad exec director Bruce Davis will issue a statement and answer questions at Academy h.q. at 10 a.m. Friday.
