without first offering to sell it back to the academy for the sum of $1, you guys. >> ouch. >> i feel for jared leto, because i still can't find my emmy. >> if you won one, where would you keep it? >> probably a trophy case or a nice little bookshelf. pretty basic. >> when i win my oscar for calling in sick i will put it by the door to remind myself every time i can call in sick. >> maybe in the lobby, so every time they walk by, mona, oscar winner. >> in this building, there's a case on one of the floors filled with all the emmys that abc has won. >> fifth floor. >> for security reasons, i wasn't going to say which floor. >> that's my selfie spot. >> what do you think happened to jared leto's? >> movers took it. >> it is probably worthless. >> it's worth a dollar.
