Still Alice got a big lift from Julianne Moore’s best actress Oscar win, with earnings climbing more than 20% from the previous weekend. The drama about a woman struggling with Alzheimer’s disease picked up $2.7 million, after nearly doubling its screen count to 1,318, bringing its total to almost $12 million.

“Whiplash” exploited J.K. Simmons’ best supporting actor victory, pulling in $677,249 after adding roughly 100 screens. It has made $12.3 million since opening.

Best actor winner “Theory of Everything” added $649,000 to its $35 million take on the strength of Eddie Redmayne’s triumph.
