Written by , Posted in Fashion

The folks at CheapOair are offering travel deals to cities where this year’s Oscar-nominated movies for “Best Picture” were filmed, and I thought that idea was just creative enough to post. Destinations include New York City (Wolf of Wall Street), London (Philomena), Boston (American Hustle), Los Angeles (Her),  and New Orleans (Dallas Buyers Club), where fans can visit and tour the exact locations where major scenes were filmed in some of this year’s most stimulating movies.

Los Angeles (Her)

When vacationing in New York City, make sure to catch lunch at Top of the Sixes, a skytop restaurant on the 41st floor of 666 Fifth Avenue, the actual building in which the LF Rothschild firm was housed. This is the location where the famous scene in which Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) gets taken out to lunch by his boss, Mark Hanna (Matthew McConaughey) on his first day on the job and is taught the “key” to being a successful and powerful investment banker. Afterwards, head over to the World Financial Center overlooking the water, to see the backdrop of where Belfort’s yacht was docked in a scene where he was getting investigated by the FBI.
