Adam Predicts the 2013 Oscar Nominees

by     Posted 1 year, 343 days ago


At last, Oscar is upon us.  Back in November I shared a look at the early awards season race by way of our 2013 Oscar Preview articles, and now nearly two months later there’s still quite a bit up in the air.  This truly is one of the more exciting awards races in recent years, as 2012 is so stacked with quality that there are a surprising number of uncertainties this close to the Academy Awards ceremony.  Nevertheless, I am once again foolishly going to attempt to predict how the Oscar nominations will shake out when they’re announced tomorrow morning, January 10th.  Hit the jump to check out my predictions.

Weekend Box Office – THE AVENGERS Break Second Weekend Record with $103.1 Million; DARK SHADOWS in Second with $28.8 Million

It’s another one for the record books. Along with the prize for highest first weekend in domestic history, The Avengers has now earned the highest second weekend with an estimated $103.1 million from 4,349 locations. That crushes Avatar’s former sophomore record of $75.6 million and represents a decline of just 50% – a better hold than The Dark Knight managed in its second frame. Even more exciting for Disney and Marvel, the worldwide estimate for The Avengers has now topped One Billion. Unfortunately, good news for The Avengers means not-so-good news for Dark Shadows. The latest collaboration of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp earned an estimated $28.8 million from 3,755 locations, or a bit less than The Avengers made on Friday alone.

Title Weekend Total
1 The Avengers $103,160,000 $373.1
2 Dark Shadows $28,800,000 $28.8
3 Think Like A Man $6,300,000 $81.9
4 The Hunger Games $4,300,000 $387
5 The Lucky One $4,055,000 $53.7
6 Pirates! Band of Misfits $3,200,000 $21.1
7 The Five-Year Engagement $3,095,000 $24.4
8 Best Exotic Marigold Hotel $2,650,000 $3.7
9 Chimpanzee $1,624,000 $25.5
10 Girl in Progress $1,350,000 $1.35
