Hello thorgunna-ga,

I haven't found a definitive answer to your question, but I did find
some information that you might find interesting.

USA Today
A fake Oprah and a real Hanks rehearse Sunday's Oscar show
"Spielberg went back to try it again, flanked by Berglind Olafsdottir
and Pamela Green, the so-called "trophy girls" who follow presenters
and hand the golden figurines to winners.

Besides beauty and glamour, what qualifications do you need for the trophy job? 

"When you audition for this, it's a little weird. They have you walk
out and smile and they read a speech ... You just have to act as if
you're interested in the speech," Green said, demonstrating her polite
smile and subtle head-nodding."

Google Groups
Ah, to be an Award Show Trophy Girl
?Trophy duty is an odd job - the gals should be gorgeous, but not
overshadow the stars. They're paid scale - about $600. They must
return all dresses and shoes to designers, if they're able to borrow
any at all. And they receive almost zero bankable exposure as models
or actresses.?


?Brewer landed an audition last week with Oscar broadcast director
Louis J. Horvitz. "He had me show up in my evening dress and walk back
and forth with a bottle of water, pretending like I was presenting an
Academy Award," she says.

Horvitz stood in for the winner, giving a speech then walking off to
the wrong side of the stage. Brewer had to gently guide him to the
correct side.?

I hope this helps.
