London, Nov 01 (ANI): Sir Elton John has revealed that if he was ever given a choice between his knighthood and his Academy Award he would rather choose the latter.

John, 63, asked by The One Show host Chris Evans which award he would keep.

“Probably the Oscar. The thing with an Oscar… normally you get an award and they don’t weigh anything. The Oscar actually feels like something,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

“The odds of me getting an Oscar when I was growing up as a musician - I wouldn’t even have thought about films and music, so that was an exciting award to get,” he added. (ANI)
