Hollywood’s biggest grossers don’t make it to the Oscars!

If the latest study in Hollywood is any indication, there are two types of successful films.

There are films that break box office records and others that reign supreme at the Oscars.

According to a study conducted by boxofficemojo.com, some of the biggest blockbusters have been consistently facing disappointment at the Oscars while the ones that have clinched the top honours at Academy Awards only managed to do decent business.

Take, for instance, The Artist, that clinched all the top awards this year including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Film.

Quite interestingly, the film made only $77 million at the box office. Before you gape at us for saying ‘only’ for the seemingly staggering figure, let’s consider the fact that it is one of the most universally acclaimed films in recent times.

The figure also appears modest if you compare it to the earnings of this year’s top grosser Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows 2. The last film in the franchise made a whopping $ 1.33 billion but got three nominations in the Art Direction, Visual Effects and Makeup categories. It lost out on all counts.

Here’s looking at how the trend has shaped up in the last decade.

The Hunger Games Edited for UK Release

Wait a second! Isn’t the U.S. supposed to be the one with the crazy uptight stick up its ass when it comes to cinema content?!? The UK is Always stealing our thunder, damn it!

Rising star Jennifer Lawrence has refused to rule out appearing nude onscreen.

The Hunger Games star has no problem with nudity in films, and admits she’d happily shed her clothes on camera if she felt it was necessary for the role.

Lawrence tells Britain’s Glamour magazine, “So far, I haven’t found a film I’d love to be naked in, but I certainly never look at an actress naked in a movie and judge her. It’s a human body, which is a beautiful thing, right? So stay tuned…”

The Oscar-nominated 21-year-old has had a taste of what to expect being naked on screen – she appeared in nothing but blue paint and prosthetics in 2011′s X-Men: First Class.
