When you consider what might be this year’s highest earning Best Picture nominee, you’d probably assume that it’s La La Land.
Well, Hidden Figures just passed the musical right by!
Hidden Figures hit over $119 million at the box office this weekend, and has been in theater two weeks less than La La Land.
We can’t help but wonder if the film’s success will be reflected in Oscar wins. Hidden Figures earned only 3 nominations, compared to La La Land’s 14. How will those nominations compare to actual wins? We will have to wait until the February 26th ceremony!
Regardless, the people have spoken, and Hidden Figures is a hit. Sharing the untold story of the female African American workers at NASA, the unsung heroes of the organization’s earliest work, the film has received widespread praise by both critics and movie-goers alike.
