Olivia Colman hides Oscar in a “secret place” at home – Film News | Film-News.co.uk

Olivia Colman hid her Oscar in a secret place at home because she thinks it’s “awkward” to display it.

The Lost Daughter star won the coveted Best Actress statuette for her performance in The Favorite at the 2019 Oscars. Colman, husband Ed Sinclair and their three children recently moved house, but she decided not to create space for display the prestigious award because she thinks it’s “embarrassing” to display it for all to see.

“I love it, but I find it a bit awkward if someone comes to the house. It’s in a secret place where I sometimes go, ‘Huggggh!’ and then close the door. I like knowing he’s there, it makes me very happy, but it’s for me,” she told BBC News.

The Fleabag actress looks set to add to her trophy collection this awards season thanks to her acclaimed role in Maggie Gyllenhaal’s The Lost Daughter, in which she plays an academic who is forced to come to terms with her own past while on vacation. .

She has already won a Gotham Award for the role but has yet to receive the accolade. Gyllenhaal collected the award on her behalf in New York in November and appears to have misplaced it, as she revealed to the publication that she did not know where it was.

Colman was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama, but lost to Nicole Kidman for Being the Ricardos on Sunday.
