Where the Stars Stash Their Statues: Homes of Academy Award Nominees

- — The movers and shakers of the movie-making industry have checked off most of the red-carpet events this awards' season: Critics' Choice Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Golden Globes. Next up? The granddaddy of 'em all: The Academy Awards.

This year, "The Oscars" will be broadcast live Sunday, Feb. 26 (ABC, 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST.) And while the media is abuzz with predictions of who'll win and what they'll wear, we are more interested in the homes where this year's potential winners will stash their golden statues.

Best Picture

Steven Spielberg, "War Horse"

As far as famous producers and directors go, Steven Spielberg tops the list. The Best Picture nomination for "War Horse," which he co-produced, is just another notch in the belt of the prolific director. He has won three Academy Awards and has been nominated for Best Picture and Best Director over 10 times.

When Spielberg isn't directing or producing his blockbusters, he splits time between his homes in Pacific Palisades, the Hamptons and Malibu. Unlike other celebrities, the director isn't one to buy and sell properties on a whim; most of his homes he's owned for over 20 years.

His Malibu home (above), in particular, is a spectacular ocean-side property he bought in 1989 for $3,375,033. The 7,000+-square-foot-home, pictured above, sits on nearly an acre of beachfront property and has 7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and the must-have celebrity amenities like an in-ground pool.

Actor in Leading Role

Brad Pitt, "Moneyball"

Although Brad Pitt has been nominated three times previously for an Oscar, the actor has yet to take home a gold statuette. Could the fourth time be the charm?

If Pitt does take home an Oscar, chances are he won't be stashing it in a home in the U.S. Pitt and his leading woman, Angelina Jolie, as well as their six kids, spend most of their time abroad, specifically in a rental home in southern France. They also own multimillion-dollar homes in Cambodia, and Berlin in addition to homes in New Orleans, and L.A. Pitt also previously owned a home in Malibu he purchased shortly after his divorce to Jennifer Aniston in 2005.
