Stars Ponder Where to Keep Emmys

LOS ANGELES -- The hottest accessory of the night at the 59th annual Primetime Emmy Awards was the 7 1/2-pound, 16-inch-tall winged muse of art known as the Emmy.
But after getting the thing home, what does a winner do with one?
Jaime Pressly, who won for supporting actress in a comedy series for "My Name Is Earl," said she planned to sleep with her Emmy on Sunday night.
"After that, I don't know," she said.
Jeremy Piven of "Entourage," who won for supporting actor in a comedy series for the second year in a row, said he would put his Emmy "right next to my other one."
"I'll put it on the shelf with its brothers and sisters," joked Sally Field, who won for lead actress in a drama series for "Brothers & Sisters."
Or maybe she wasn't joking. Field already has two Emmys, and two Oscars, to keep her new Emmy company.
"I've made myself a trophy shelf and it's quite cool," said Helen Mirren who won for best actress in a TV miniseries or movie for "Prime Suspect: The Final Act (Masterpiece Theatre)." "It has every trophy I've ever won."
That's quite a few, given that in the past year Mirren has won an Emmy, an Oscar and a Golden Globe after picking up an Emmy last year.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who has won five consecutive Emmys for "The Amazing Race," may have to build himself a new trophy shelf.
"I'm running out of room," he complained.
Tony Bennett said he would keep his Emmy for variety, music or comedy special ("Tony Bennett: An American Classic"), in the office of his son, producer Danny Bennett.
"Next to mine," his son added.
Jon Stewart ("The Daily Show With Jon Stewart") quipped that he plans to find a functional use for his fifth consecutive Emmy for variety, music or comedy series.
His house is falling down, Stewart said, and he plans to wedge the Emmy underneath.
