The numbers agree: the Golden Globes had no effect on this weekend’s top ten at the box office!
Indeed, in a telling display of the waning cultural impact of the Globes, Lone Survivor — which was nominated for precisely zero Golden Globes — took home the top spot. It earned $38.5 million at theaters over the weekend.
Golden Globe winners like Frozen (Best Animated Film) and Wolf of Wall Street (Best Comedian — Male) took 2nd and 3rd place respectively, but with totals of $15 and $9 million each, they were easily outpaced by Mark “The Marine” Wahlberg.
Tune in next time to see what effect, if any, the SAG Awards have on the box office numbers.
