Box Office Does Not Equal Oscar

 

Best-Picture-592x310

 

Back in the 70’s and 80’s Best Picture winners were usually the biggest money makers of the year. Box Office helps, but now it doesn’t really play a role.  GRAVITY has brought in the most money at $270 million. 12 YEARS A SLAVE comes is in at number 4 with $50 million. Some people just aren’t interested in watching a brutal movie about slavery and the same goes for Oscar voters.  This is why I am sticking with GRAVITY as the Best Picture winner.

  1. GRAVITY: $270,465,000
  2. AMERICAN HUSTLE: $146,710,000
  3. THE WOLF OF WALL STREET: $114,579,000
  4. CAPTAIN PHILIPS: $106,957,071
  5. 12 YEARS A SLAVE: $50,260,000
  6. PHILOMENA: $34,629,000
  7. DALLAS BUYERS CLUB: $25,318,000
  8. HER: $24,604,000
  9. NEBRASKA: $17,133,000
