Box Office Flop “Miss Sloane” Nominated For One Golden Globe

posted on December 15, 2016

Yesterday, we reported that the gun-control political drama, “Miss Sloane,” was failing at the box office—the 79th worst opening in the last 35 years. However, the filmmakers did receive one bit of good news: Jessica Chastain, who plays the title role, received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress, the only nomination the film received. 

Much of the promotion for “Miss Sloane” centered around hailing Chastain’s performance in hopes of securing the film an end-of-year award. In fact, her role as a crusader for a progressive cause—facing impossible odds as she switches sides to fight the “powerful gun lobby” and pass a “universal” background check bill—is tailor-made for Hollywood awards. 

The film has earned only $1.9 million from 1,648 screens; projected to earn only $5 million, it appears that it will fall short of even that. “Sloane” reportedly cost $13 million to make. The producers are presumably hoping for a bump in receipts if Chastain receives further nominations.
