Martha Stewart said she has custom-made silver Emmy statues, but the people behind the prestigious television academy weren’t particularly thrilled with the lifestyle mogul’s decision to switch it up from the standard liquid gold-dipped statues.

On Wednesday’s episode of “MTV Cribs,” the 80-year-old businesswoman gave a tour of her 156-acre farm in Katonah, New York. The sprawling property has seven houses, 150 chickens, and “too many geese,” Stewart said.

One of the rooms of the estate houses photos of Stewart with prominent figures, like the late boxer Muhammad Ali and former president Bill Clinton, as well as a table with many of her Emmy Awards. Notably, some of the Emmys are silver in color, while the rest are in the traditional gold. 

“I like silver better than gold, so I have some of these in silver,” she tells viewers during the “Cribs” tour.

She added: “The Emmy people weren’t so happy about that. It’s kind of cuter in silver.” 

Stewart scored her first Daytime Emmy Award in 1995 for hosting the syndicated lifestyle show “Martha Stewart Living.” She revealed on Wednesday’s “MTV Cribs” episode that her first Emmy nod is one of the statues she asked to get in silver instead of gold.

“Martha Stewart Living” aired for 11 years until 2004, coming to an end when Stewart spent five months in a minimum-security prison for lying about a stock sale.

After Stewart’s prison stint, she hosted “The Martha Stewart Show” from 2005 to 2012. The businesswoman won her most recent Daytime Emmy in 2011 for the variety talk show. She has been nominated for one Primetime Emmy since then — for hosting “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” in 2017. 

While “Martha Stewart Living” the TV show might have come to an end, Stewart still runs a lifestyle magazine and website by that name, offering helpful tips on home decor and recipes. 

Stewart previously told Harper’s Bazaar in February that she’d been approached to host “Saturday Night Live” after her prison sentence but her probation officer at the time didn’t allow it.

“That really pissed me off, because I would have loved to have hosted ‘Saturday Night Live.‘ I’d like that on my résumé,” Stewart told the publication, calling not being able to host “SNL” her “only big regret.”

But who knows? Maybe an Emmy nod for an “SNL” guest-hosting stint is still in the lifestyle maven’s future.
