Oscar Impact: Which Best Picture Nominees Will Benefit the Most?

Fandango, the online ticketing service, has seen a 241% jump in sales for The Shape of Water after the Cold War fable scored a leading 13 Oscar nominations.

Fox Searchlight has seen $40 million domestically from del Toro’s film, which was playing last weekend at 853 North American sites.  The movie will add nearly 1,000 locations this weekend to go to 1,840.

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “Lady Bird,” which got 7 and 5 nods respectively, saw Fandango sales double.

Daniel Day-Lewis’ fashion drama “Phantom Thread,” which surprised with 6 nominations, generated a 69% increase.

“Call Me by Your Name” rose by 56% and “Darkest Hour” and “The Post” both gained 46%.

The two films currently on DVD and streaming, “Get Out” and “Dunkirk,” also saw upticks in sales on the FandangoNOW on-demand service with respective hikes of 114% and 78%. Both films are returning to the big screen this week with “Dunkirk” showings two months after the World War II epic departed from theaters.

Get Out, which opened February 24 and grossed $254 million at the worldwide box office, left theaters in July.

It received four nominations Tuesday — best picture for producers Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, Edward H. Hamm Jr., and Jordan Peele; best actor for Daniel Kaluuya; and best director and best original screenplay for Peele.
