The "Best House In A Movie" Nominees Are...

The Academy Awards are on tonight, and I can't wait!
I love the red carpet, the gowns, the speeches, and am looking forward to the new host, Seth MacFarlane.

I only wish there was a category for "Best House in a Movie!"
There are so many beautiful iconic movie homes.
Here are a few of the nominees I've chosen....

 The Godfather
Located in Staten Island.

American Beauty
Located in Los Angeles, CA

 Father Of The Bride
Located in Pasadena, CA

Marley and Me
Located in Chadds Ford, PA

And the winner is: Practical Magic! :D

Love this post!

Unknown said...

I believe, without a doubt, that the winner would be Something's Gotta Give!



The winner for me is Father of the Bride..but it doesn't mean the rest are winners too! I loved your idea of the "best house" nomination. Such fun post, thanks!

Something's Gotta Give! With Mrs. Doubtfire and Practical Magic close behind. Happy Oscar viewing!

Sarah said...

Hands down, it would be Something's Gotta Give in the Hamptons. I dream about that house. '-)

Babs said...

Definitely Something's Gotta Give. Love that house.

Meg@OliverandRust said...

carolyn bradford said...

I' ve never heard of Practical Magic! Why in the world did they tear it down??? It's so gorgeous!!! My ALL TIME FAVE will ALWAYS be Somethings Gotta Give!! Followed closely by Father of the Bride, Home Alone and It's Complicated! Oh, and love Steel Magnolias! But for the houses themselves….it's Something's Gotta Give…for sure!!! Love this post! Great fun!

Katherine said...

Father of the Bride would be my first house pick, then Home Alone as the supporting role.

Pura Vida said...

I love the kitchens in both Practical Magic and Its Complicated..the outside is great too

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

Practical Magic for me. For that fabulous kitchen!

How funny that most designers remember a movie by the interiors and architecture? I certainly do because I knew most of them. What a fun post! Great idea.

Victoria said...

"Something's Got to Give" would do it for me with the side benefit of being in Southhampton.

Polly said...

Father of the Bride! Thanks for the fun review.

Jacqueline said...

Practical Magic gets my vote! I believe it was torn down because it was built simply for the movie - alas, just a set. The kitchen scenes are wonderful - my dream kitchen.

cindy hattersley design said...

For me hands down the both Nancy houses Somethings Gotta Give and It's Complicated!

thistlewoodfarm said...

I would totally give the Oscar to the Father of the Bride house! And I loved that movie, too!


deb said...

It's Complicated - love that house and the kitchen!

A Perfect Gray said...

oh, that look at houses was so much fun. I love the "something's gotta give" house - inside and out.

Rooms by Ann said...

I love the house from home alone.

Jennifer said...

Something's Gotta Give

Anonymous said...

Too hard to choose. But if I had to it would be the house in Somethings Gotta Give. I live in Seattle and didn't realize that the house from Practical Magic was built on San Juan Island. Too bad they tore it down. Thanks for another great post.

Bonnie said...

Wow, interesting post! I can't decide a winner. I think I would chose Something's Gotten Give.

Clever blog post.

Orlando Designs said...

such a shame that the practical magic house was torn down.
