Claims to be a trademark. Is not cited at all, let alone for WT:BRAND. Encyclopedic. DCDuringTALK 00:27, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

I've added the entry Academy Award and RFDed it (because I assume the nominator of the plural wants to see the singular gone, too, not because I do). I've also cited it, I think sufficiently to meet our CFI. (If not, it still may well be possible to do so.) Keep and RFV if desired, but convert the plural to a normal plural-of-noun entry.—msh210℠ (talk) 21:59, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Not sure what rules are being applied, but it looks like this passes (or could pass) the strictest of them. Keep both.DAVilla 02:48, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
I'm confused. It's a "Proper noun" but it's being defined as a plural common noun ("prizes"). ---> Tooironic 01:21, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
The plural is a trademark for the set of prizes. Equinox◑ 10:49, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
Isn't it also the show where said prizes are awarded? DAVilla 18:49, 25 January 2011 (UTC)
I would like to see some citations that illustrate how this meets WT:BRAND. DCDuringTALK 20:00, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
It seems ok for me. Search for "two academy awards" for example either on Gbooks or on Gnews: no ™ or ® postfixed and most sources are not affiliated with the registrant. — Xavier, 00:07, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
I still don't see any citations in the entry or on the citations page. DCDuringTALK 00:49, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Isn't this just the plural of Academy Award, which is well cited? bd2412T 01:41, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't see any citations in [[Academy Award]] either. Having citations that meet WT:BRAND would enable us to see what its transferred meaning is. If one is only interested in its referent, we do have a sister encyclopedia for that. DCDuringTALK 11:56, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
Also, here's one:
2009, Christina Wilsdon, Animal Defenses, p. 35:
Going limp and lying still works well for many animals, but a few species deserve Academy Awards for their death-feigning skills.
They still make each other smile and they each brag about how smart and talented and wise and tender the other one is and how lucky each is to have met the other and they actually look happy and if it's a front then I say both of them deserve Academy Awards for their splendid performances.
