Hollywood’s biggest grossers don’t make it to the Oscars!

29 Feb

If the latest study in Hollywood is any indication, there are two types of successful films.

There are films that break box office records and others that reign supreme at the Oscars.

According to a study conducted by, some of the biggest blockbusters have been consistently facing disappointment at the Oscars while the ones that have clinched the top honours at Academy Awards only managed to do decent business.

Take, for instance, The Artist, that clinched all the top awards this year including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Film.

Quite interestingly, the film made only $77 million at the box office. Before you gape at us for saying ‘only’ for the seemingly staggering figure, let’s consider the fact that it is one of the most universally acclaimed films in recent times.

The figure also appears modest if you compare it to the earnings of this year’s top grosser Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows 2. The last film in the franchise made a whopping $ 1.33 billion but got three nominations in the Art Direction, Visual Effects and Makeup categories. It lost out on all counts.

Here’s looking at how the trend has shaped up in the last decade.
