Golden Globe-winning Reese Witherspoon insists awards are less than impressive in her household - her five-year-old daughter simply uses the coveted gongs as dolls.

Witherspoon, who is nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Walk the Line, admits AVA's nonchalant attitude keeps her feet on the ground.

She says, "My daughter sneaks them off to her room and dresses them up. She's becoming quite jaded about the whole thing."
