All movies were among the 50 highest grossing films of all time when this quiz was contributed.
Billion Dollar Movies
This movie, the highest grossing of all time, won only 3 awards, all in technical and production categories.
#1- $2.78 billion
This movie featured Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Thor but they couldn't save it from only getting one nomination, but no awards.
#3- $1.52 billion
In this movie, Daniel Radcliffe's acting killed Voldemort and the film's chances for a statute. It got three technical nominations and no awards.
#4- $1.34 billion
Tony Stark can beat Mandarin, but he can't even get the Visual Effects Oscar that this film was nominated for.
#5- $1.22 billion
The Autobots weren't even on the light side of Earth's satellite in this film that got 3 sound and visual effects awards and no statues.
#6- $1.12 billion
This Christopher Nolan film is the 9th highest grossing of all time, but this caped crusader installment didn't even get a single nom.
#9- $1.08 billion
They might have stolen Davy Jones' heart in this film, but they didn't steal the heart of Oscar voters, who gave it only a Visual Effects award.
#10- $1.07 billion
The Fountain of Youth was not the fountain of Oscar noms for this swashbuckling installment that got no nominations at all.
#12- $1.05 billion
The Force (nor the midichlorians) were strong with this one- three technical nominations and no awards.
#14- $1.03 billion
Bilbo found a gold ring, but no gold statues in this Middle Earth adventure.
#17- $1.02 billion
You might disagru with the voters, but this animated tale took home nearly $1 billion and awards.
#21- $971 million
Fiona's parents might not like her husband, but they really didn't like their dearth of Oscars.
#29- $920 million
My title-sense is tingling, but this film still didn't web its way to any hardware. Maybe a Tony?
#31- $891 million
Too much Sid, not enough Manny. Everybody doesn't love Raymond.
#32- $887 million
Children AND senior citizens thrown into a battle to the death? That's too much like the Oscars to get any Oscar nominations.
#36- $864 million
Oscar voters were too saddened that there would be no more sparkly vampires to remember to vote for them on this film.
#39- $830 million
Will Smith kills aliens with the help of Jeff Goldblum and yet gets only a visual effects nod. What is the world coming to?
#42- $817 million
Fast cars, evil villains and multiple pardons weren't enough to get a single Oscar nod for this film.
#46- $789 million
Whip? Check. Fedora? Check. Giant carnivorous ants??? Too much for the Oscar voters.
#47- $787 million
Who will survive the global apocalypse? A writer??? Too far-fetched for Oscar voters.
#50- $770 million
