Glenn Close has revealed what she will do with her Oscar if she wins at tonight’s Academy Awards.

The Fatal Attraction star is up for Best Supporting Actress at tonight’s ceremony, for her role in Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy.

While appearing on the red carpet, Close told E! presenter Giuliana Rancic that she would take her Oscar around her local haunts if she were to win.

“I have this fantasy and I think I’m gonna actually do it, that I might take it to the local library for people to look at,” Close said.

“I’ll take it to the coffee shop I go to all the time, so people can actually see what it’s like. So you can bring this world into everyday life. That’s what I will do.”

Close’s Hillbilly Elegy nomination marks her eighth Oscar nod since 1983, none of which have resulted in a win.

She is currently the most nominated female actor to never win an Oscar.

Hillbilly Elegy, which is adapted from a bestselling autobiographical novel by JD Vance, stars Close as an eccentric grandmother named Mamaw, who helps raise her grandson when the boy’s mother (Amy Adams) descends into addiction.
