Oscars ’18: The Shape of Water is a relatively cheap Best Picture winner

With the last pieces of confetti being swept up, these year’s Oscars have come to a close. The big winner was Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water, bringing in a grand total of four Oscars, including the Oscar for best picture. We’ve put all the past winners of that category together, including this one, and looked at their production costs (in millions of 2018 dollars). Del Toro’s The Shape of Water comes in on the lower end of the chart, costing a mere $19 million, whereas movies like Titanic and Gladiator greatly surpassed the hundred million mark. Interestingly, in the last few years we see a decline in producing costs, with only one of the last ten Best Picture winners costing more than $21 million dollars. (source)
