Most Americans Haven’t Seen The Oscar Nominees

I honestly can’t remember the last time I really cared about the Oscars. Oh wait, yes I can. It was when Heath Ledger was up for Best Supporting Actor for his role in The Dark Knight. Other than that, chances are I haven’t seen most, if any, of the movies that are nominated.

Apparently I’m not alone, especially this year. Vanity Fair recently did a poll and found that 55.3% of Americans haven’t seen ANY of the movies nominated for Best Picture. You could have come to this conclusion on your own though if you just looked at the money that each movie made. Only two of the movies, La La Land and Hidden Figures, earned more than $100 million at the box office.

That leads to another stat, and that’s that 43% of people polled said that the Oscars have zero influence on whether or not they want to see a movie. I actually have seen one of the movies up for Best Picture (Arrival), but the fact it’s nominated didn’t come into my decision to go see it.
