Three’s company for Olivia Colman.

The newly-minted Oscar winner joked to reporters that she already has a plan as to where her new Best Actress trophy will be stored: under the covers.

“In bed with me. Between me and my husband,” the British actress said in the Oscars press room. “He doesn’t know yet, he won’t mind.”

Colman, 45, is married to Ed Sinclair, who got a special shout out during her acceptance speech after she scooped up the prize for Best Actress on Sunday at the 91st annual Academy Awards. The star won for her role as Queen Anne in The Favourite.

“My husband Ed and best friend, I love you so much,” she said during the speech. “25 years you have been my best supporter and he is going to cry. I’m not.”

The star — who appeared visibly shocked by her win — drew laughs with the hilarious speech as she accepted her trophy.

“It’s genuinely quite stressful. This is hilarious. I got an Oscar,” she said on the stage. “I have to thank lots of people. Yorgos [Lanthimos], my best director and the best film with Emma [Stone] and Rachel [Weisz], the two loveliest women to fall in love with and go to work with every day. You can imagine it wasn’t a hardship.”

Colman tells PEOPLE that she was surprised by her win, and was entirely unprepared to give a speech.

“No, not at all. It was rubbish, really!” she said.

Colman was the sole winner for The Favourite, which was nominated for an additional nine awards, including Best Picture.

The 91st Academy Awards were broadcast live from Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
