Pop culture in all its glory and form will always have the power to make us move or be moved, whether through a song or a movie. And when it comes to movies, it's true that, sometimes, they have the ability to take us to the deepest cores of ourselves--our emotions. Yet, more often than not, they take us somewhere far off; Somewhere we may (or may not) have been to before. And since we are guessing that you are a crossover of a certified wanderlust and a movie buff, what could be a better travel inspiration than seeing breath-taking destinations featured in some movies? But wait, these are not your typical travel movies--these are your 2020 Oscar-nominated movies!

Truth be told, we easily get influenced by cinematic shots presented to us (thanks to all directors of cinematography for the eye-candy). It feels as if we want to get teleported to certain amazing locations ASAP! And this year, we have been lucky to have such a glorious line up of Academy Award-winning movies that brim with such! For instance, Ford v Ferrari just proves to us that it caters to more than just racecar aficionados. From the famous Ford factory in Dearborn, it takes us to Daytona Beach in Florida where we can perfectly beach bum! Look no further, people from the US! The fascinating Schuylkill River featured in The Irishman is a must-visit destination to both local and foreign travelers! Another movie that made it to the list is JoJo Rabbit with its showcase of the Czech Republic, including Prague. A peek inside the walls of Vatican City through The Two Popes makes Rome a bucket-list destination, as well! With all these and more, no wonder such films are considered Oscar-worthy.
