Where Other Academy Award Winners Keep Their Oscars

Kate Winslet recently explained she kept her Academy Award, the one she won for “The Reader” (suck it, Rosenbaum), a long overdue benefaction from the motion picture gods, in the bathroom. “The whole point,” she told The Wall Street Journal, “is for everybody to pick it up and go, ‘I’d like to thank my son and my dad.’ And you can always tell when someone has, because they’re in there a little bit longer after they flushed.” That’s pretty awesome. It also, as it absolutely had to, got us here at Cinema Romantico to thinking…where do other Academy Award winners keep their Oscars? Hmmmmmm.

Where Other Academy Award Winners Keep Their Oscars

Chris Cooper

Keeps His Oscar In: the tool shed, next to the riding mower.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Keeps Her Oscar In: the Guest Bathroom, next to her La Chaux-de-Fonds bath soap and Neuchâtel scented candles, with a rustic donation jar in which visitors can leave contributions as a means to pay homage to their host's luminosity.

Nicolas Cage 

Keeps His Oscar In: on top of the ejector seat pool table in the solarium meant to approximate Superman's Fortress of Solitude.

Melissa Leo

Keeps Her Oscar In: her purse, so she can show it off any time or anywhere to anyone.

Jennifer Lawrence

Keeps Her Oscar In: currently it's in the Lost & Found box at the TCBY.

Matthew McConaughey

Keeps His Oscar In: "The cosmos of my own mind, hombre, where I can see it and touch it, with the spiritual forces that drive an actor toward unknowable plains we strive to reach in the context of performative assumptions heretofore not made that need to be."

Mary Steenburgen

Keeps Her Oscar In: the bedroom, but on Ted's nightstand, so he sees it every morning and remembers who the hell wears the pants in this relationship. 

Ben Affleck

Keeps His Oscar(s) In: Christine Ouzounian's bling closet.

Tommy Lee Jones

Keeps His Oscar In: melted it down in order to construct a very efficient paperweight.

Daniel Day-Lewis

Keeps His Oscar(s) In: fastened to a carrying pole he hauls on his back during a daily ten mile run to remind himself THAT HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS MEAN NOTHING.

Nicole Kidman

Keeps Her Oscar In: The Throne Room from which she rules the world.

LOL, some of these had me rolling (TLJ in particular). I love that about Kate, honestly. I really want to use her bathroom!
