citizen kane oscar sells

This would be awesome to have, but it'd be cheaper to just pick up the Citizen Kane blu-ray for $40!

Earlier this month, El Lay's Nate D. Sanders Auctions announced that they'd be putting Orson Welles' Citizen Kane Oscar up for sale online.

Sure enough, the item caught interest of quite a few buyers, including David Copperfield who placed a bid on the award.

In the end, the Oscar sold for $861,542 to "an undisclosed buyer"

Here's what auction house owner Nate D. Sanders had to say about it:

"This is a testament to the popularity of Orson Welles and his magnum opus Citizen Kane."

Congratulations to the lucky buyer! The mantel above their fireplace is about to look MUCH cooler! Ha!

What do U think? Is Orson Welles' Citizen Kane Oscar worth over $860K???

    It's depressing that Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry sold for millions, but an Oscar from one of the best directors of all time sold for less than a million.
    I get that jewelry can be at least somewhat more useful than an award, but you know those people aren't going to wear it.
    Well, actually I'm depressed that anyone actually has that kind of money to buy jewels or Oscars.

    Just don't think Oscars should be bought and sold.

    I thought Oscars weren't allowed to be sold and upon the death of a winner it is supposed to be given back to the academy. I could be wrong though.

    I intended to see this movie, but never did. Rosebud, infamous last words.

    Really! What ever happened to donating to an appropriate venue?
