The Oscar statuettes are coming! PAGE SIX reports that the 50 trophies will arrive today in Los Angeles via Chicago on United Airlines Flight 854 at 10:19 p.m. Frank Pierson, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and Noreen Prohaska, a rep for R.S. Owens and Co., which manufactures the Oscars, will accompany the shipment. The duo and their gold men will arrive with 4-foot-tall Oscar decals on the nose of the plane.
