Emma Thompson Stores Oscars in the Loo

NEW YORK (AP) _ Emma Thompson's husband restored a barn in Scotland that included a place for her to write, but the actress and screenwriter prefers the bathroom.

She also keeps her Oscars there.

``They look far too outre anywhere else,'' Thompson, 46, told Time magazine. ``They're great big, gold, shiny things. They're up there tarnishing quietly along with everything else I own, including my body.''

Thompson stars in and wrote the script for the upcoming film ``Nanny McPhee,'' the story of an ugly but magical child minder. She compared the movie to a western, with a stranger who rides in to a chaotic situation and uses unorthodox methods to sort things out before leaving.

``People say, 'Is it like ``Mary Poppins?``' Actually, it's like 'Shane.'''
