Director Danny Boyle keeps his Academy Award hidden under his bed at home.
The Brit won the Best Director Oscar in 2008 for his hit Slumdog Millionaire, but, after having the honor on display at home for a while, he decided to store it away.

He tells Live from Studio Five, “It’s in a shoe bag in a box under the bed. I used to have it out (on display) and get up every day and you just can’t look it – it’s like an elephant in the living room, you cannot avoid it.”

Boyle could soon have another Oscar to add to his collection – on Tuesday he was nominated in the Best Adapted Screenplay category for gritty survival drama 127 Hours.
