5 Amazing Homes of Academy Award Nominees

With the 86th annual Academy Awards coming up on March 2, we're taking a peek inside the amazing homes of a few of the nominees. Who do you think will take home the Oscar?

Leonardo DiCaprio - Nominated for Best Actor for his roll as high-rolling stockbroker Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street. Leo recently sold his Malibu beach home for $17.35 million, which originally went on the market in November 2012 for $23 million. The 2,633-square-foot compound includes three separate residences with seven total bedrooms, multiple whirlpools, luxury decks and, of course, private access to a stunning stretch of Malibu beach.

Julia Roberts - Not only is she America's Sweetheart, she is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in August: Osage County. The rumor is that the actress and her husband are said to have purchased a gorgeous beach home in the Limahuli Valley on the Hawaiian island of Kauai for $10 million in 2009. The property sits on eight acres and includes a three-bedroom main house, one-bedroom cottage and 400 feet of direct ocean frontage. Now it's for sale and can be yours for $17 million. 

Martin Scorsese - Not only is the film The Wolf of Wall Street nominated for Best Picture, Scorsese is nominated for Best Director. Here is the actual home that was used as Leonardo DiCaprio's pad in the movie. The three-bedroom penthouse is perched on the 32nd floor and offers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline and the East River. The open living/dining/kitchen area is filled with light, and the entire apartment is decked out with floor-to-ceiling windows. The master bedroom features river views, accesses the 200-square-foot terrace and comes with a private fireplace and six-foot soaking tub in the bathroom.

Matthew McConaughey - While he also appears in The Wolf of Wall Street, the actor is nominated for Best Actor for his role as an AIDS patient and rodeo cowboy in Dallas Buyers Club. Did you know he use to live and work out of a tricked-out 28-foot Airstream trailer? That is, before he opted to cruise back to his Texas stomping grounds and set up camp in a 10,800-square-foot Austin mansion. Take a look at this mini screen-test comparing McConaughey's "before" and "after" living quarters.

Jonah Hill - Nominated for Best Supporting Actor in The Wolf of Wall Street and also known for his roles in movies like Superbad and Moneyball. Hill purchased this ranch-style estate in suburban Tarzana in 2011 for $2.175 million. He then sold the home in 2012 to "Love You Like a Love Song" singer Selena Gomez. Built in 1956, the five-bedroom house spans 4,500 square feet and is located on a corner lot in a gated community. Party-friendly features include a pool, spa, tennis court and bocce ball court.
