"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!)

There doesn't seem to be an option for having held or been in the vicinity of an Oscar that you didn't win. I thought at first it was the Oscar Isaac option but then I realized you were referring to a person named Oscar...

"Life hazards made me lucky to be close enough to look at a real Oscar (or many)"
I knew some were so close they could actually hold it, but then I figure out that if I added that option, I would still have to do the distinction between "looking at" and "holding", so I thought "well, if someone could hold it, he was still close enough to look at it" so one option could work for two situations.

"I'm related (blood or bills)"

Blood or bills? Don't think I've heard that term before...

PS - you could change "look at a real..." to "look at or touch a real..."
