How close to an Oscar have you ever been?

As for the rest of us, although familiar with the look of the golden statuette, we never got close enough to check if Hoffman or Streisand's reactions were deserved. Or were we? Indeed, it is worth asking the question, how close to an Oscar have you ever been? (and we mean, physically!) Discuss the list here
