    Ok, continuing the previous post made by @ENGLAND, here’s the list of the highest grossing films that earned Best Actor nominations. @Sir Shaw posted some of them in the previous post, but I think it deserves a separated discussion. Again, inflation is not included and I’m including films that grossed $300 million+ as for now.

    2. Bohemian Rhapsody – $904.6M (Rami Malek) WON

    5. The Martian – $630.2M (Matt Damon)
    6. American Sniper – $547.4M (Bradley Cooper)
    7. The Revenant – $533.0M (Leonardo DiCaprio) WON
    8. Saving Private Ryan – $482.3 (Tom Hanks)
    9. Gladiator – $465.4M (Russell Crowe) WON
    10. La La Land – $448.9M (Ryan Gosling)
    11. Les Miserables – $441.8M (Hugh Jackman)
    12. A Star Is Born – $436.2M (Bradley Cooper)
    13. Cast Away – $429.6M (Tom Hanks)
    14. The King’s Speech – $427.4M (Colin Firth) WON
    15. Dance with Wolves – $424.2M (Kevin Costner)
    16. Gone with the Wind – $402.4M (Clark Gable)
    17. The Wolf of Wall Street – $392M (Leonardo DiCaprio)
    18. Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood – $374.4M (Leonardo DiCaprio)
    19. American Beauty – $356.3M (Kevin Spacey) WON
    20. Rain Man – $354.8 (Dustin Hoffman) WON

    26 Best Actor nominees grossed more than $300 million, in comparison to 15 in Best Actress.

    The two highest grossing films are the last two winners in this category. Before 2018, the highest grossing Best Actor nominee was below the two highest grossing Best Actress nominees (Titanic and Gravity). Now only Titanic is above the biggest Best Actor nominee.

    The most shocking Oscar bait yet! The biopic about Bradley Cooper’s thirst to win an Oscar! Directed by Ron Howard, co-starring Amy Adams.

    American Sniper made so much. No wonder Cooper got a surprise nomination at the Oscars.

    Michelle Williams Oscar campaign manager.
