ok so I was telling my best friend about something I read about how the Academy Awards were having issues with their like electronic internet voting because all the academy members are like a million years old and can’t use the internet. Or something. Idk, my bubbie is 90 and she sends a million email forwards a day so probably the academy voters can manage it. Whatever.
ANYWAY. Then she was telling me about some article she say in a magazine talking about where various Oscar winners keep their Oscars. Russell Crowe for example keeps his Oscar in his chicken coop with his chickens because he’s a weirdo.
Apparently Kate Winslet said she keeps her Oscar in her bathroom, that way people can pick it up or touch it or whatever in private without having to be embarrassed about saying hey can I try holding your Oscar.
My first thought was, yeah that makes sense, if I were in a room with an Academy Award, I would be totally distracted by how much I wanted to try holding it. My second thought was wow that must be nice for her good friend Leonardo DiCaprio.
