None.

Oscar in Box Office History (Week 3, 2020)

Every week, we’ll take a look back in 5-year intervals at the box office past to explore how Oscar’s nominees were doing at the box office each weekend historically. The first section under each year is the positioning of all Oscar nominees during that weekend at the box office (as well as a section looking at the inflation-adjusted numbers). The third section is an alphabetical list of those films and the categories in which they were nominated. And to start each week off, we’ll be looking at the films releasing over the weekend that have the best chance of getting Oscar nominations and specifying the categories where we think they have the best shots at this stage of the game. If you have any suggestions for more data you’d like to see, please let us know.

2019 Precursor Predictions: Screen Actors Guild

The last of the Hollywood televised awards is this weekend and everyone will be watching for what the Screen Actors Guild does. Will they cement the frontrunners or will they throw in a wrench. This is the place to test out theories ahead of the Oscars with the last televised film-only awards, BAFTA, the last say in the race.

2019 Precursor Predictions: Producers Guild of America

Since the creation of the SAG awards in 1995, there is a trend where if a film wins at SAG, PGA, and DGA, the chance of winning the Oscar skyrockets. In those fifteen years where they didn’t align, seven of those years saw the PGA winner also take the Oscar for Best Picture. So, this is the group that can forecast trends such as Green Book last year, The Shape of Water the year before.

2019 Precursor Predictions: Motion Picture Sound Editors

The Motion Picture Sound Editors are a chaotic group. With so many categories, it’s possible that the Oscar winner is already here and the winners of this group’s award will point that out to us. The Sound Editing category at the Oscars is most closely associated with this organization; however, Academy members are more likely to vote the two sound awards in tandem than they are separately. So, if there’s a winner here that matches at the Cinema Audio Society, that’s probably a good bet for the Oscars.

Precursor: 11th Denver Film Critics Awards (2019)

Not only do I have no idea when these were announced, I have no idea who the winners were in two categories. These come courtesy of the IMDB page for this awards body. Neither the group’s Twitter nor Facebook page have been updated since July. I’m posting today, though who knows for sure when they were announced. Nothing really to see here except for a new trend towards 1917.
