Between no televised Golden Globe ceremony, the SAG, Critics Choice, and Grammy Awards being postponed due to the pandemic, and the changes to the Academy Awards show, there's no denying that this year's "awards season" was more than a little unusual. One thing that has not changed, though, is that entertainment luminaries have been drawn to New York as a home base. Interestingly enough, a number of Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, and Tony Award nominees and winners were among the bold-faced names listing, selling, and buying in New York over the past month.

Rupert Murdoch — Listed for a total of $78,000,000

23-East-22nd-Street-01 Rupert Murdoch (Wiki Commons); One Madison (Corcoran)
When media tycoon Rupert Murdoch bought his massive spread at the Cetra Ruddy-designed One Madison in 2014, he lived in the smaller unit on the 57th floor while the white-box triplex penthouse on floors 58-60 was constructed and renovated to his exact specifications. Since then, the 57th-floor unit has been used for staff and guests; however, when the condos hit the market, listing broker Deborah Grubman of Corcoran told The Wall Street Journal that the two units could be combined into one massive home with the building’s approval.

From the Listing:
Crowning One Madison from the 58th to the 60th floors, the Triplex Penthouse boasts nearly 7,000 square feet of open interior space with dramatic full-height windows that offer breathtaking 360-degree skyline and river views. This residential masterpiece was designed with the utmost sophistication and aesthetic integrity. The double-height Great Room with over 20-foot ceilings and a 586 square-foot wraparound terrace is the centerpiece of the residence. A formal dining room offers the ideal setting for gracious entertaining. The gourmet eat-in-kitchen is beautifully appointed with professional appliances.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel — Listed for $35,000,000

443-Greenwich-Street-01
Talk about “no strings attached” - barely two months after a penthouse owned by Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel sold for $29 million, The Real Deal announced that it was back on the market for $35 million! The listing comes less than five years after the power couple purchased the penthouse for $20.2 million, a $7 million discount on the original listing price.

243-East-17th-Street-01 Catherine Martin (Flickr - Eva Rinaldi); Baz Lurhmann (Wiki Commons); 243 East 17th Street (Corcoran)
Director Baz Luhrmann is known for the lavish look of his “Red Curtain Trilogy” (Strictly Ballroom, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, and Moulin Rouge!); his wife, Catherine Martin, is the most awarded Australian in Oscar history for her beautiful costumes and production design. The power couple brought the same aesthetics to their Gramercy Park townhouse; in addition to renovating it for modern living, they redid the formerly drab interiors with more colorful wallpapers, accents, and furnishings. They initially planned to live in the house, but the pandemic kept them stranded in Australia for years; during that time, their children reached college age. Ms. Martin told The Wall Street Journal that she and Mr. Luhrmann planned to look for another New York property, preferably one more geared towards empty nesters than the townhouse.

From the Listing:
Beckoning the bygone era of the Gilded Age in New York, this exceptional 28-foot-wide, elevator townhome sits perfectly positioned with a centerline view over Stuyvesant Square Park. Beautifully renovated in 2019, this stately home with gracious proportions features a three-bay facade, round-arched doors and windows, a lovely foliate patterned cast-iron balcony that runs the width of the edifice, and a paneled cornice. Totaling nearly 8,500 square feet with additional FAR, the five-story was originally built in the 1850s and currently has 6 bedrooms and 5 baths, and 2 powder rooms. This elegant townhouse has been featured in numerous design publications including Elle Decor and was one of Elle Decor’s top "liked" Instagram posts of 2021.

Itzhak Perlman — Listed for $17,500,000

21-West-70th-Street-01 Itzhak Perlman (Wiki Commons); 21 West 70th Street (Compass)
Acclaimed violinist Itzhak Perlman is performing all over the country again, but his longtime Upper West Side townhouse enjoys excellent proximity to Lincoln Center, the Met, and Carnegie Hall. It also boasts expansive proportions, an indoor swimming pool, and 1,500 square feet of private outdoor space comprising a garden, terrace, and roof deck. However, the New York Post revealed that now that Mr. Perlman’s children are grown, the 8,000-square-foot house is too big for him and his wife Toby - they have just listed it.

From the Listing:
This absolutely stunning 20 foot wide townhouse built in 1901 is located just off Central Park West on beautiful tree lined 70th Street. With approximately 8,000 square feet of interior space and nearly 1,500 square feet of private outdoor space, this home is truly spectacular!

Milos Raonic — Listed for $9,995,000

470-West-23rd-Street-01
While not quite the 443 Greenwich Street of Chelsea, the London Terrace Towers complex has attracted a number of celebrity residents over the years. #PHA is proof of that - when announcing that tennis star Milos Raonic was listing his penthouse in the building, The Real Deal noted that he bought the apartment from David Chase, creator of The Sopranos, in 2019.

Gabriel Byrne — Sold for $5,050,000

211-Elizabeth-Street
According to city records, Emmy-nominated actor Gabriel Byrne has sold his apartment at 211 Elizabeth Street - not one of the most amenity-rich buildings in Nolita, but perhaps one of the best situated on the corner of Prince Street.

From the Listing:
Full of bespoke character and elegance, this Roman and Williams condo is perched on the lively corner of Prince and Elizabeth Street’s North of Little Italy neighborhood.

411-East-53rd-Street-01 Scarlett Johansson (Wiki Commons); Sutton Manor #PHD (Douglas Elliman)
After two years on the market, Tony Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated actress Scarlett Johansson has sold her Sutton Place penthouse. While it came in $230,000 below the $2.1 million she paid for it in 2008, the New York Post points out that pricy renovations (an updated kitchen among them) make for more of a loss.
