‘It’s going to be inspiring artists for years to come’: After Box Office Disaster ‘Babylon’ Gets Multiple Oscar Nominations, Fans Hail Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie Movie As A Masterpiece

Damien Chazelle’s Babylon could not hit the mark at the box office when it came out. The drama/comedy features some known faces of Hollywood like Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire, and Olivia Wilde. But the movie did not do well at the box office, making only about $28 million worldwide. The film was mainly criticized for its runtime of 3 hours and 9 minutes, graphic content, and direction.

The audience had mixed opinions about the film, but everyone praised Robbie for the part that she played in the movie. The movie didn’t get a nomination for Best Picture but managed to earn nominations for Best Original Score, Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design. The lack of acknowledgment of performances by Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie left the internet divided.

People were disappointed to see that Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie’s work in the movie was not acknowledged as they did not receive nominations. The idea of the movie was quite interesting as it traces the rise and fall of a cast of characters during an era of decadence and depravity in 1920s Hollywood. The budget of the movie was roughly $78 million and it only managed to garner roughly $28 million at the box office. So it’s safe to say the movie underperformed. It was released in the United States on 23rd December 2022.
