The buzz surrounding the Oscars is helping the nominated films at the box office.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "The King's Speech" has earned more than $200 million worldwide, followed closely by "Black Swan" and "True Grit." Meanwhile, "The Social Network" surpassed that milestone in January and "The Fighter" has made more than $100 million.
"It's pretty impressive what the Academy dramas have done, and not just in the U.S. but all over the world," Sony Pictures Entertainment vice chair Jeff Blake told THR.
Could this mean more of the same kind of cinema in the future? Perhaps. "The stunning box-office performance of small awards films this season has rocked the conventional thinking in Hollywood," THR notes, "prompting many to speculate on whether studios will rush to release more adult dramas."
Will you be catching any of the nominated films this weekend in anticipation of Sunday night's telecast of the Academy Awards?
Excellent post. I used to be checking continuously this weblog and I am impressed! Extremely useful information specifically the ultimate part :) I handle such information a lot. I was seeking this particular info for a long time. Thanks and good luck.
Once again, the Academy Awards should be called the BAFTA Awards. Not a problem, but please stop confusing US with another name other than what the BAFTA's are doing. Other than that, what a shame, shame, shame that all 'minorities' were completely locked out of the awards, once more. Jews and Whites were the only ones who are noteworthy, I guess? YAWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!
U r not the real rebel
Wunderbar ! Ya ! Ya !
Doesn't this happen every year during the Academy Awards? Isn't that almost their only purpose? Didn't the Hurt Locker do poorly in the box office until it was nominated?
