UPDATED: Golden Globes By The Numbers: '12 Years A Slave' and 'American Hustle' Poised To Gain At The Box Office

on January 12, 2014

12 Years A Slave
Winner: Best Motion Picture (Drama)
Domestic Gross Before Globes: $38.9 million
Analysis: 12 Years A Slave has a lot of room to grow at the box office. Expect Fox Searchlight to bump the film's theater count up from 115 in the weeks to come. There's little doubt now that 12 Years is the heavy favorite to walk away with the Best Picture Oscar, and that will make it hard to ignore. If Fox Searchlight plays their cards right, 12 Years could easily hit $60 million-$65 million in North America. 

American Hustle
Winner: Best Motion Picture (Comedy/Musical)
Domestic Gross Before Golden Globes:
$101.6 million
Analysis: American Hustle is already one of the biggest must-see flicks in theaters right now, but it's victory will only draw in more crowds who will really feel left out now. The fact that Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence walked away with Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively, may win over reluctant female moviegoers who think Hustle is too macho. Hustle should have no problem breezing past $130 million domestically.
