"For the last year I've kept it in my empty new house-I had no time to decorate. But I finally got to shop this Christmas and bought a pedestal for it that I keep lit. Where I come from, no one has ever seen an Oscar. So I let people take pictures with it-but I do not allow them to touch it. Sorry, no touching the Oscar! It's the ultimate honor, and I need to protect it."

Hudson won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in Dreamgirls in 2006.

"For six years it was in our old house in Coldwater Canyon. We had a wine cabinet, and it sat behind the glass on one of the shelves. People would say, 'Is that it?' The cabinet was temperature controlled because of the wine, so the Oscar stayed beaming new. Now that I keep it out in the open in my screening room, it has become tarnished-which is kind of cool. It's starting to age and get character. Like me."

Gooding won his Oscar in 1996 for Best Supporting Actor in Jerry Maguire.

"I keep my Oscar in the guest bathroom. We call it the Famous Bathroom. It's very crowded in there now because the walls are covered with framed nominations. By the way, Tim [Robbins]'s Oscar is slightly taller than mine. I don't know why."

Sarandon won her Oscar in 1995 for Best Actress in Dead Man Walking.
