Quality Films Can Do Well At the Box Office

Remember how last year's Oscar for Best Picture went to the little seen, "The Hurt Locker?" And how some bitched and moaned about how a movie that nobody saw beat out the mighty "Avatar." It's a different year. According to the USA Today, five of the nominees for Best Picture did well at the box office.

It's a good thing that five quality films did well at the box office. Making movies is after all, a business. It's an interesting business because it marries art with commerce. But one hopes that Hollywood executives see that art films can do well commercially. Perhaps more will get made. And who knows, maybe Michael Bay might someday direct a family drama.
