The weekend after the Oscars, Nomadland is shaping up to be the worst performing Best Picture winner in decades. You get two guesses as to why.

After the Oscar triumph, Nomadland gained 180% over the weekend in Australia to make $286,000, for a total box office taking of just under $4 million over nine weeks. This result is particularly notable compared to its comparatively paltry takings abroad; it seems that Nomadland in the US has been sticking at a box office return of around AU$130,000 per week, with nary a tremble after the Oscars, though there could be more action in this coming week.
