Will Winning an Oscar Make You Want to See The Movie? [POLL]
The Oscars are this Sunday (March 2). Have you seen any of the movies up for Best Picture yet? Don’t feel bad. Looks like most of us haven’t seen any of them!
According to a new survey by Reuters/Ipsos 67% of us haven’t seen any of the movies!
Just so you know, the movies up for Best Picture are: “American Hustle”, “Captain Phillips”, “Dallas Buyers Club”, “Gravity”, “Her”, “Nebraska”, “Philomena”, “12 Years a Slave” and “The Wolf of Wall Street”.
No, I haven’t seen any of them, but will that make me not watch the Oscars? Oh, no I’ll be watching!
But, I do wonder, will an Oscar win or nomination make you more likely to see a movie?
For me it really depends if the movie looks good or not! It will bring attention to it and I’ll look it up to see if it looks interesting to me, but just because it gets a stamp of approval from the Academy of Motion Pictures won’t make me think, ‘Oh, my gosh! I must see.”
Although, it might make me look twice at old movie from the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s.
The Oscars coverage starts at 6 p.m. Sunday March 2 with The Oscar Red Carpet Live and the Awards will start at 7:30 p.m. hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.
