Poll: How close to an Oscar have you ever been?

"He has no genitalia and he's holding a sword"

These are the words formulated by Dustin Hoffman when he was close enough to give a detailed description of the most coveted award of Cinema's history, a tad less passionate than Barbra Streisand's "Hello, gorgeous".

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!)
