With a desire to put his awards on display, a Hollywood film legend hired a contractor to install beautiful one-inch thick glass shelves on the bathroom wall of his Upper East Side Manhattan home. The thespian promptly filled the shelves with all of his various acting awards, including an Oscar, a BAMBI, and multiple BAFTAs (the international equivalent of the Oscar from Germany and Great Britain, respectively), among others. Unfortunately, the weight of the awards pulled the mounting screws from the walls. The top shelf crashed down, taking out three lower shelves and leaving 25 awards in various states of ruin amid a pile of broken glass.
