You Won’t Believe Where These Celebrities Keep Their Oscars!
After the glitz and glam of the Oscars is over, the night’s winners retreat to their homes – albeit with a shiny new accessory. Of course it deserves a spot front-and-center, but you’d be surprised to find out where celebrities decide to place them. In honor of the 88th Academy Awards coming up this weekend, here’s a look at where previous Oscar winners stash their statues, including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Winslet, Ben Affleck and more!
“When my house was being built in 1988, one of the guys who was doing finishing work said he wanted to construct a trophy cabinet for me,” Morgan has said. “And he put an acrylic sign on the top shelf saying ‘No Parking: Oscar Only.’
After winning her Oscar, she told People magazine she considered making it into a door knocker or a necklace, “but neither one of those options was very practical. I just keep it in my living room.”
“That is the first place I go when I go home, you put your keys down, you take off your jacket and you put your Oscar in your kitchen,” Jared, 42, told Entertainment Tonight Canada.
It’s in her bathroom so guests “can sneakily have a little [hold] and put it back down again,” she has said. “…Basically everybody wants to touch it, everybody wants to hold it and go ‘Oh, my gosh,’ and ‘How heavy is it?’,” says Kate.
“I think the World’s Greatest Mom trophy from Mother’s Day is up there as well,” he has said.
Hollywood’s darling du jour, Jennifer Lawrence, keeps the award she won for her leading role in Silver Linings Playbook on top of her parents’ piano at home in Kentucky.
For all of the acceptance speech kerfuffle when Gwyneth Paltrow won best actress for her role as Viola de Lesseps in John Madden’s 1998 film Shakespeare in Love, the Hollywood star prefers to keep the award tucked away.
“I allowed her to hold it hostage in Boston in lieu of a grandson,” he said. “I stole it back and it kicked around from office to office. I’ve kept it in pretty mundane locations, on desks or bookshelves, in my office next to my signed Celtics basketball, a Red Sox hat, and photos of me and Matt clowning around right after we won. It would be nice to win for acting; I’m sure my work in Gigli has a shot!”
According to The Guardian, Nicole Kidman’s best actress Oscar for The Hours now sits on her parents’ mantelpiece in Sydney.
