Talented scriptwriter Jeff Pope had no idea the bronze statues given to Bafta winners were made just a short walk from where he grew up, in Castle Avenue, Yiewsley.
Mr Pope, who scooped the Bafta for Best Adapted Screenplay with Alan Partridge star Steve Coogan at Sunday night's awards show, spoke lovingly of the borough he was born in.
Pat, Mr Pope's mum, still lives in the same house in Yiewsley. She worked in the Post Office in Yiewsley High Street for many years "so a lot of people know her and she has had lots of wonderful comments since Sunday," Mr Pope said.
"A big moment for her will be going to the library because she is always keeping the staff there updated on what I am doing so she is looking forward to going down there and having a chat about it," he added.
Both Mr Pope's parents lived in the borough all their lives and he says "were such a big part of the community."
His father passed away in November, which made Sunday's win even more emotional for him.
"I hadn’t prepared a speech or anything because that would jinx it and it was such a surprise to win it. I knew I was going to say something about my dad, I was a bit choked but I managed to get it out. We lost him in November so I wanted to mention him," he said.
The writer and producer said the star-studded ceremony was a surreal experience.
"I didn't think we would win and then when we did I was so overwhelmed that I completely forgot to get my kiss off of Amy Adams on stage," he said. "More than anything though, the real Philomena Lee was there and it was so great to be able to share that moment with her and to see the journey that she has been on."
It's a journey that spanned more than 50-years and for which Mr Pope worked with Steve Coogan for three years to create the script.
"Steve and I spent a huge amount of time with Philomena, particularly going over her story and making sure we had it right. We did an awful lot of research before we even sat down to start writing anything.
"I was doing other stuff at the same time but it certainly was a big commitment and it has to be if you want to create something that is true and honest and does the story justice.
"Steve is a brilliant mimic amongst his other talents so it was like being in the room with these characters. He would be Philomena and then he would be the hotel receptionist and then he was the barman. It was a great way to work."
The former St Stephen's and St Matthew's School boy - which now operates solely as St Matthew's School - in High Street Yiewsley, said it was strange to hear his award was made just down the road at New Pro Foundries Ltd factory in Horton Close.
"That was the weirdest thing, when I discovered it was made just a short walk from where I lived. I only found that out reading your report online. It has come full circle," he said.
The producer has also gained praise for his scripts for ITV dramas Mrs Biggs and Lucan. His next project, a drama about the early life of Cilla Black - titled Cilla - is due to start filming in Liverpool in March, with actress Sheridan Smith taking the title role.
The writer said he prefers to focus on real events and real people, stemming from his early career as a local reporter.
"I cut my teeth at the Ealing Gazette, I worked there from 1980 to 1983. With drama what you are looking for are extremes of behaviour and where we find that is in real events.
"I love that you can tell a really fascinating story but if you can end it with a caption that reminds the audience that that all actually happened, it is suddenly so much more interesting and poignant.
"Working as a journalist at the local paper was the most brilliant place to learn the trade. Whether you work in television or in film or even if its in sports writing it's all about stories and how you tell them.
"I think [my career] has always been about expressing myself through words, I began that as a journalist and it has stayed with me."
From humble beginnings this local boy done good but he won't let the success go to his head and he certainly won't be keeping his award in the downstairs loo.
"It's a tricky thing finding a place for the Bafta because you don't want to be pretentious, but you also don't want to act as if you don't care about it, because I am very proud," he said.
