    The 89th annual Academy Awards air this Sunday, Feb. 26, and some of the nominees have a longer trek than others to make it to Hollywood's Dolby Theater.

    Of course, many do have homes in the Los Angeles area. After all, it makes sense to prioritize a shorter commute. Others, however, have to fly in from across the country or across an ocean.

    Some of the stars go big when buying a home, like Jeff Bridges' 19.5-acre Montecito estate, while others go for more modest properties, like Octavia Spencer's three-bedroom home in Toluca Lake.

    Regardless of the home size they choose, many celebs opt for features that enhance feelings of luxury and privacy. The homes on this list feature wine cellars, vintage tiling, sparkling pools, private theaters and, of course, tall, extensive landscaping.
