Actress Cate Blanchett wanted to follow fellow Academy Award winner Emma Thompson's lead and place her 2004 Oscar statuette in the bathroom - but was too proud to hide her award away.
The Australian star picked up the Best Supporting Actress gong for The Aviator at 2004's Academy Awards, and wanted to be modest about her win by displaying the prize in the lavatory.
But the star eventually decided to go against her humble plans, and ended up placing her award centre-stage - on top of her grand piano.
She says, "I thought about sticking it in the loo (toilet). I was going to be very witty and Emma Thompson about it.
"But I'm actually very proud of it so I ended up putting it on the grand piano because all my friends want to pick it up and pose with it."
