Roma's great competition: Shoplifters,Never Look Away,Cold War,and Capernaum

Dear readers,I've been filled with existential despair this week.I'm not sure how to continue covering the Oscars next year if the Oscars are going to drain all the art out of it by denying all the categories that make cinema,亚博主页cinema,and announcing them off air.I haven't quite formed my thoughts on this (I expect this upcoming Oscar night to be disastrous) for a complete post but while we still have the more movie-fan friendly categories to look forward to let's continue to talk about them!  We've done some research on how the foreign film category tends to fare in the US marketplace that we wanted to share.In addition to being a super high quality roster,this year's Foreign Film list has done well with audiences,too.

Both Poland'sCold Warand Japan'sShopliftershave become genuine hits and will certainly outgross the long runs of the last few years worth of most talked about foreign flicks whether or not they were Oscar nominated likeThe Square,A Fantastic Woman,Elle,The Salesman,andThe Handmaiden.In fact,in any year withoutRomaor each other in it,wouldn'tCold WarorShopliftersbe winning this category with ease ?!?

After the jump,let's take a look back atall95 nominees this century and how well they fared at the box office.Plus lots of trivia just because trivia is fun and will ward off the despair...
