It's recognized everywhere

Meanwhile, a steady stream of nominees had their pictures taken with the five big Oscar statues onstage, and another statue that stood at the centerpiece of the “class photo.” “Everybody is doing the picture thing,” laughed “Up” composer Michael Giacchino – who then admitted that yes, he’d done it too.

As the event wound down, a figure in orange robes made his way through the thinning crowd, heading for the stage.

It was one of the monks depicted in the documentary “Burma VJ,” which details how that country’s monks led an heroic stand against their country’s military repression.

When the got to the foot of the stage, the monk reached into his robes, pulled out a small camera, and began taking photos of Oscar.
