The Oscar trophy is a much-coveted item in the acting universe. Many actors build their entire careers around it, while others have been chasing it to no avail for years. Artist Plastic Jesus has used the silhouette of the Oscar award and changed the subject matter some to create a controversial piece of art.

The piece is called 'Hollywood’s best kept secret,' and it shows the Oscar award holding up a needle to its arm. Drugs are a very taboo topic in the acting world and in the last year, we’ve seen actors like Philip Seymour Hoffman succumb to it. The piece is very to-the-point and powerful because it skips all the subtext and gets right to the point.
