Hot on the heels of last month’s Golden Globe Awards, the 89th Academy Awards – aka the Oscars – are just around the corner.
Oscar night is the creme de la creme of award ceremonies, and winning one of the golden statues is no small feat, even for Hollywood A-listers. To gear up for Sunday night’s ceremony, let’s take a peek inside the homes of 10 past Oscar winners.
Four-time nominee and one-time winner (for Best Actress in “Silver Linings Playbook”) Jennifer Lawrence snapped up this Beverly Hills home from Jessica Simpson. The home has an airy Hamptons feel and style, while the grounds provide a peaceful garden oasis.
The queen of Hollywood made headlines with her 20th Oscar nomination – a record number – just weeks after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2017 Golden Globes. Streep’s former townhouse, a charming 19th-century Greenwich Village abode, hit the market in January for $28.5 million. The luxury home comes equipped with a sleek chef’s kitchen, a master bath made entirely of Italian marble, and a rooftop deck with city views.
In 2016, Adele joined the ranks of J. Law, Channing Tatum, and numerous other celebrities with a new home in Beverly Hills. The “Skyfall” singer and Oscar winner’s home features exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, and a dreamy backyard with a spa, a gazebo, and white lights strung over the pool.
Twelve-time nominee and four-time Oscar winner Katharine Hepburn was a leading lady – both in Hollywood and in Oscar nominations. After her death, the seaside estate from her childhood, which she rebuilt and vacationed at throughout her lifetime, was listed for $14.8 million.
Best Actress winner Charlize Theron (for her 2004 role in “Monster”) sold her luxurious Los Angeles loft at a $1-million loss in 2016. The 2-story penthouse overlooks the Capitol Records Tower from its three terraces. Without the view, the tall steel-framed windows and exposed pipes might fool you into thinking you’re in New York City.
Best Actor winner Jeff Bridges (for his role in “Crazy Heart”) has been nominated for an Oscar seven times – the latest of which is for his role in 2016’s “Hell or High Water.” Bridges and his wife, Susan, lived for many years on a 19-acre spread in Montecito, CA with their daughters. With the kids all grown up, the Bridges are looking to pass on the 9,593-square-foot home to another family who can enjoy the Pacific Ocean views and secret hedged garden.
In late 2016, the Best Supporting Actress winner (for her role in “Cactus Flower”) and her husband, Kurt Russell, listed their longtime home – a spacious Los Angeles mansion in the exclusive Palisades Riviera neighborhood. The home features numerous skylights, built-in bookcases, an eat-in country kitchen, and a huge backyard designed for hosting.
First nominated for an Oscar in 1989 for his role in “Big,” Tom Hanks has racked up four subsequent nominations and two wins. In 2016, Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, listed their neighboring estates in Los Angeles. The two properties are located on adjacent lots, sharing celebrity neighbors like Steven Spielberg and Reese Witherspoon, but otherwise vary in size, style, and amenities.
The two-time Best Actor winner (for his roles in “Milk” and “Mystic River”) listed his Malibu estate in 2015. The U-shaped home sits on a private 1.4-acre lot with beautiful terraced gardens, a pool, and a backyard fire pit – and it’s just a short walk to the beach.
Four-time nominee Michelle Williams hasn’t secured a win yet, but this could be her year – the “Manchester by the Sea” actress is up for Best Supporting Actress. In 2015, Williams let go of the Brooklyn townhouse she once called home with Heath Ledger (for well over her asking price). The 4-story home includes a three-car garage, a rooftop garden with a waterfall, and 12-foot ceilings.
