2016 Movies

The big Oscar winners this year were La La Land, Moonlight and Manchester By The Sea

Want to know the best 2016 Movies?  How about the worst 2016 Movies?  Curious about 2016 Movies did at the box office or which 2016 Movies picked up the most Oscar® nominations and Oscar® wins? Need to know which 2016 Movies movie got the best reviews from critics and audiences? Well you have come to the right place….because we have all of that information.  We have been doing a yearly page since 2011….the previous winners were 2011’s The Help, 2012’s Argo, 2013’s Gravity, 2014’s American Sniper, 2015’s The Martians and 2016’s…to be determined.

So what will you find on this page? …You get lots of stats on 2016 Movies.  In the following table you can sort the movies any way you want.  Want to know the current Top Domestic Box Office Hit of 2016?  Just hit the sort button on that column and you will see Finding Dory in first place.   Want to know which movies got the best and worst reviews of the year?  Just hit the sort button on that column and you will see Moonlight in first place and Meet The Blacks in last place. You can also sort by Ultimate Movie Ranking scores…which combines box office, reviews and award.   Sorting that column shows Zootopia at the top and Meet The Blacks at the bottom of the rankings.

Any movie that has earned over $5 million dollars in domestic box office gross is included in the rankings.  There are a few that earned less than $5 million that made the rankings…but they have a popular star attached to them….like Tom Hanks in A Hologram For A King.    We will be updating this page regularly until probably next March….as we determine the 2016 Movie Of The Year.  Just so you know.  A movie maxes out earning points in the box office category…when it reaches the $200 million domestic mark.

Zootopia currently has the number one spot....but not thinking it is going to get much Award love at the end of the year

Zootopia has a spot in the Top 5…can it hold that spot over the next few months?

2016 Movies Can Be Ranked 6 Ways In This Table
