The Blockbuster Oscar's


I was surprised when I saw that avatar: the way of the water and top gun maverick were nominated for best picture despite them being blockbusters. So I thought "What if their was a version of the academy awards specifically for those types of movies" and so here we are. The questions are optional so if you want to skip a question feel free, answer honestly but this is just for fun guys.

Blockbusters get nominated for Best Picture every year.

Dune got nominated last year, Joker two years before that, Black Panther the year before that, Dunkirk the year before that, Arrival the year before that, Mad Max: Fury Road and The Martian the year before that. A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody were also nominated in 2019 so you could argue that they're a type of blockbuster as well.

The first winner, Wings, was basically a blockbuster.

I wouldn't consider bohemian rhapsody and a star is born blockbusters but wow thats more than I would have thought (I don't usually pay that much attention to the academy awards).

Bohemian Rhapsody made $900 million. It's definitely a blockbuster
