After the Red Carpet is Rolled Away, Where Do Stars Keep their Awards? – Part II
On mantles, in closets, in bathrooms? Oscar, Golden Globe, Tony, Grammy and Emmy winning stars share the unique spots housing their impressive hardware.
The ‘Walk the Line’ lead thought about turning her Best Actress Oscar from 2005 into a piece of shiny jewelry or a showy door knocker, but neither of those options were practical, and the star who won a Golden Globe for the same movie, just keeps both in her living room.
When Goldie needs to think straight again, she visits her statue that was awarded for her supporting role in 1970’s ‘Cactus Flower’ in. Her award is in her study- room where she practices meditation. At times it’s on the mantel, or even put away. Out of sight, out of mind!
Though humble, the two-time Academy Award winner did not want to show off the Oscar won in 1980 for’ Kramer vs. Kramer’ and in 1989 for ‘Rain Man’. They earned a prestigious place on his study room’s mantle next to his 6 Golden Globes, and the 1997 Cecil B. De Mille Award. Probably years of therapy changed his mind and he is proud of them, but they do not propel his work.
Blame it on the vodka or whatever, but Jamie was uncomfortable keeping his 2004 Oscar for ‘Ray’ at his 40-acre California estate and his manager keeps the Oscar in his crib, as there was too much traffic at his house!
What does the acting legend think about her Oscars for ‘Klute’ in 1972 and ‘Coming Home’ in 1979? With two Oscars, she could do a workout with them. When still wed to Ted Turner, he showed his wall-to-ceiling sailing trophies in a skating rink-sized office, she admitted winning a few shiny trophies too. Together they built a trophy case in their Montana home to kept them all together.
The ‘Big Little Lies’ star literally wanted to give her two Emmys won in 2017, away to daughters Sunday and Faith. But Sunday her then-10-year-old , wanted to earn her own.
Ben Affleck & Matt Damon
Damon managed to misplace his 1998 Oscar statue after New York City apartment was flooded, while his ‘Good Will Hunting’ co-writer, Ben’s award lived in his apartment in L.A. Then he gave it to his mother in Boston in lieu of a grandson. Later, he got it back with himself and shifted it from one office to another, in rather plain locations, on desks or plain shelves.
With an Oscar for 1984’s ‘Terms of Endearment’, the 5-time Golden Globe winner has put the 8 1/2 pound little guy to function as a paper-weight, when winds blow through her New Mexico ranch. Living very simply now and not bothered about clothes, most awards are in drawers or in storage. Her Oscar lives in her den with a Shiva statue from India.
Stone got her golden little man covered. After hosting the 2017 ceremony when the actress won an award for ’La La Land’, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel sent rubber underwear for her Oscar, to bring some decency into her home, ever as Stone’s mom Krista holds on to it.
John Legend’s 11 Grammys, a Tony, an Oscar, a Golden Globe and an Emmy plus Teigen’s trophy as Glamour’s Women of the Year are on display and may need a new home.
