Academy Award

Gold (fake) Trophy for Cyclops-related Victories

Given to the captor of a cyclops by the Mayor of the Town of Ducan, the award did not exist before Francis' capture, because no one had ever caught a cyclops before. The Mayor felt strongly that such a feat warranted a trophy of honor, and so he commissioned the first ever Academy Award to be cast. He presented it in person at the parade celebrating the imprisonment of Francis, who was apprehended simply because the town thought him to be a menace and danger.

Today, Francis is considered a local hero and celebrity, and so the Academy Award is now given to a young person of promising vision and talent in the arts or sciences, despite the fact that it still depicts one man punching another man.
