2 Comedies At The Box Office! Sad Babies Everywhere!

Hi Boys and Girls!

Another weekend has passed and another set of Box Office results are now available. Sadly only two comedies made the Top 20 this week, as only The Descendants and The Artist are still holding steady. Don’t despair though, there will be more comedies coming out soon! Hopefully anyway….

This baby is sad that only two comedies made the charts this week....!

Number 9: The Descendants

Arriving at the BAFTAs yesterday, George Clooney looks VERY happy holding Colin Firth's hand.....

Slipping down one spot from Number 8 last week, Alexander Payne’s latest will be sure to get an Oscar boost by the end of the month when George Clooney is set to win Best Actor at this year’s Oscars. Although, after Jean Dujardin’s win at the BAFTAs could that even be thrown out of the window? Stay tuned! And close the window for safekeeping!

Number 13: The Artist

Jean Dujardin holds his Best Actor BAFTA which he received last night.

The Artist is sweeping the board at every major awards ceremony this year, and it will be interesting to see if ticket sales get a boost from all the promotion with lead actor Jean Dujardin.
