It had the buzz, the backing of Oprah, and the critics, all it need was the box office. Not only did Precious do well at the box office this weekend, it was "remarkable". Only expanding from 18 to 174 theaters, it hit the #4 spot, grossing $6 million, with an average of $35,000, Precious is truly precious. It has cleared the last major hurdle and now has a pretty open path to an Oscar nomination. Congratulations!
