Will You Go See a Movie Just Because It's Nominated?

Will You Go See a Movie Just Because It's Nominated?

With so much ado over the Oscars each year, it's always interesting to see what impact, if any, the king of all award shows has on the nominated films at the box office. This year's not looking so good: Lacking major blockbuster crowd-pleasers a la Lord of the Rings, this year's five best picture nominees will likely be the second-lowest box office earners in two decades.

Still, studios put a lot of stock in these accolades. Michael Clayton, for example, got a re-release after it started racking up critics' awards and nominations in the hopes that audiences would give it a second chance because of all the acclaim. What do you think? Do Oscar nods or other award nominations make you more interested to see a movie you originally planned to skip?
