Oscar Nominees Continue To Dominate

oscarmoneyThe numbers agree: the box office has been dominated by Oscar candidates since the nominations were announced a few weeks ago.

This week, every movie in the top 5 is an Oscar nominated film. That is extraordinary, and speaks to our cultures broader movement toward top quality films. I suppose we can thank presidential candidate Donald Trump for the desire to be the best and see the best. Thanks, DT.

Here’s this week’s top 5:

  1. Kung Fu Panda 3 – $41 million
  2. The Revenant – $12.4 million
  3. Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens – $10.7 million
  4. The Finest Hours – $10.3 million
