"Her" Movie Stills

Joaquin Phoenix in Warner Bros.' "Her" - 2014

Inspired by Oscar: A Best Pictures Guide to Travel

10 March 2014

Shanghai for Los Angeles. Malta for Somalia. Even New Orleans for Dallas. But nothing can stand in for New York or Nebraska.

Every year, the Oscars inspire instant itineraries for the film-loving travel buff. The great thing about the movies is you can model your trip on what's actually featured onscreen or on the behind-the-scenes inspirations. The cinemascape in "Her," for instance, imagines a futuristic Los Angeles in warm pastels, where trees grow on rooftops and riders can hop a subway all the way to the beach or a snowy forest. You can visit the future today — but it'd include a side trip to China.

All the better. Trip through this slideshow of locales domestic and exotic among the 2014 Oscar nominees — where not even the sky (thanks to "Gravity") is the limit.
