Oscar in Box Office History (Week 27, 2019) – Cinema Sight by Wesley Lovell

Every week, we’ll have a look again in 5-year intervals on the box office past to discover how Oscar’s nominees have been doing at the box office every weekend historically. All knowledge is collected from Box Office Mojo. The primary section beneath annually is the positioning of all Oscar nominees throughout that weekend at the box workplace (as well as a piece wanting at the inflation-adjusted numbers). The third part is an alphabetical record of those movies and the classes in which they have been nominated. And to start out every week off, we’ll be wanting at the movies releasing over the weekend that have the most effective probability of getting Oscar nominations and specifying the categories where we expect they’ve the most effective photographs at this stage of the game. When you have any strategies for more knowledge you’d wish to see, please tell us.
