Shhhhhhhh! Don't dare you bring in common sense in the Sony Studios bashing bandwagon! Its not like we even care that they have the Sony Classics branch, do we?
While I do agree that the blockbuster attempts of the studio failed in the last couple of years, they are very strong in the art-house department.
Bold: Exactly. I see why people would want a gory Carnage movie but saying that Sony should leave the industry is such a knee jerk reaction.
Aggregating Box Office Mojo's data since 2001, total Oscar wins by studio are:
1. Fox + Fox Searchlight - 50
2. Sony Columbia + Sony Classics - 36
3. Warner Brothers + New Line Cinema (bought in 2008) - 32
4. Buena Vista + Walt Disney + Pixar - 30
5. Paramount + Paramount Vantage + DreamWorks (owned in 2006-2008) - 29
6. Miramax - 23
7. Universal + Focus Features (bought in 2016) - 22
8. Lionsgate - 20
9. Lantern Entertainment (former Weinstein Company) - 19
Edit: This year, movies by Sony Columbia and Sony Classics have 11 Oscar nominations.Last edited by Replicant - on 19 October 2018
