Down 840s so I've just unveiled the picks for the markets.
But the envelope for the Oscars is coming up right now the -- -- annual Academy Awards airing on Sunday night.
While it waits as he goes home with the gold instead here we know who's winning big at the box office Delhi and joining us now spending does -- -- that.
Great to have you on again I don't have really enjoyed talking to you at the yet Golden Globes time and I wanna find out when it comes abuse.
Is best picture nominees.
Who came -- big at the box office to make the most money.
Well here's the good news which is that if you look at the previous Oscar years 81% of moviegoers on and then -- felt the academy was out of touch.
With the mainstream movie going public you had films like crash.
And Million Dollar Baby and last there was the Hurt Locker winning for best picture.
And this year the number went down with only 62% of our moviegoers on Fandango -- academies out of touch and that's because you've got big movies the top grossing film that you're Toy Story 3.
You know it's made like 400 million golfers or something like that domestically it's insane.
Inception -- all these films are big money makers and a lot of these -- are low budget movies like the King's Speech.
The Black Swan and the fighter.
To all those films are gonna take home Oscars this weekend which means that they're going to just make even more money.
The King's Speech right now.
Is doing twice as much business.
As a brand new movie that opens today called drive angry which could describe the emotions of some of the losers leaving the Kodak Theatre as they drive home especially the folks from inception.
And the social network which -- might only come down with the best screenplay.
-- -- -- And that's the thing I mean today the best picture nominees you know they've made some very big impacts in some small impacts of the box office I mean -- -- ten million in revenue for toys for -- -- like you're saying.
A lot of these were smaller films.
That made it today in the -- -- -- bigger films that.
You know could could go even further with what Oscar Oscar buzz -- an Oscar win.
Yet -- only with the uncomfortable thing on Sunday night is going to be watching Christopher Nolan the director of inception who did not get nominated for best director.
Hopefully at least his cinematographer we'll get an Oscar.
Otherwise going to be really uncomfortable that I felt was one of our biggest money makers of the -- -- Toy Story 3 so.
What happened was Oscar was broken for several years with only five nominees -- -- films like Capote in Munich getting in -- that nobody had seen.
Now with ten nominees they fixed it.
And so you have films that people actually care about -- Toy Story re actually got in there.
The fighter will probably get Oscars for best supporting actor and best supporting actress the King's Speech will walk home with best picture.
Best actor best screenplay and original screenplay.
And possibly best director which should be a real sad thing for David Fincher who used to be the favorite for the social network and -- -- surprised about the revenue today for the social network in particular I was gonna go into the numbers here and it's going on -- six million dollars actually surprise me but about that if -- To partner.
That's at the effective deluding any any of the voting such that we could see a surprise kind of popped out as if if a couple of things would split the vote.
Yeah I've talked to a lot of Oscar of voters who were upset about the dilution.
Of that category for best picture but now it's it's not gonna hurt the King's Speech because everybody likes it as preferential voting for the moment -- most -- Is the one that's going to win and that's the -- an actor's picture don't forget the actor's branch is the largest branch the academy -- over a thousand members.
And this is a movie about a bill that's being played by Geoffrey Rush to help the king of England who had stage -- it's a story that all actors can relate to so -- be fun to watch.
That film sweep the off anybody can relate did that -- supporting actress yeah all right what -- I'm wondering if -- you got the Oscars there.
I'm going to an Oscar party I've been to the -- before look at it is torture I gotta tell you for these people who sit in their seats.
I mean watching Annette -- putting on that second place smile again -- -- this is the Natalie Portman this weekend.
It's torturous and then go on Monday morning we'll have the top five most outrageous Oscar reactions put up there by FBI -- Joseph Navarro.
Who was interrogated terrorists -- he knows when people are lying when they're trying to make -- happy if they're really bring your team.
If that you can see -- -- and -- All right Monday and I love it all right Harry Medved the bending it like now that there was great top tier on these big shows singular -- husband after the -- --
