When a recording artist gets an award for going gold or platinum, the record in the award frame is rarely the record they actually recorded. While early awards would put “masters”, “mothers”, or “stampers” (metal parts used for pressing records out of vinyl) in the frame, today it is far more common for there just to be a random record in there with the official label pasted on (modern awards often use CDs).
