Helen Mirren's The Queen was in many ways a completely standard win...a solid success before the nomination and an even bigger hit afterwardsDoes Box Office matter to Oscars?亚博主页It does and it doesn't.And how much it matters varies from year to year and from category to category.It obviously matters,regardless,if you're either a flop or a big hit but anything inbetween (where most movies fall) is up for speculative debate.

For instance,just this year people have debated whetherThe Wife's box office take is strong enough for a Best Actress nomination for Glenn Glose (hint: it totally is...though winning will be harder) and whether it will matter thatRomawon't really have that much of a theatrical presence (it might.it might not.The streaming only/mostly thing is relatively uncharted territory) or if the major success ofA Star is Bornwill make a win possible for Lady Gaga (it won't hurt!)

For fun let's look at how much the Best Actress nominees films made before they were nominated for the past fifteen years and see what patterns emerge.The films in red won Best Actress Oscars.亚博主页
