And The $$$ Goes To… Oscar Nominees By The Numbers
Best Opening Weekend of a Nominee
The film that had the best opening weekend of 2013 is not nominated for Best Picture or Cinematography. Instead all its glory is in post-production. One candidate for Best Visual Effects also had the No. 1 opening weekend sales — Iron Man 3. The fourth film starring RDJ (Robert Downey Jr, in case you’re not on an initial basis like we are) as Tony Stark grossed $174 million in its first three days.
