It’s Friday, Feb. 20—two days away from the biggest event on Hollywood’s calendar: the 2009 Academy Awards.
Joining me today to talk about the financial side of the movie industry’s big love fest is Paul Dergarabedian, Hollywood.com‘s box office guru and president & founder of the box office tracking firm, Media by Numbers.
Paul is one of the most widely quoted and respected movie industry analysts and appears on hundreds of television and entertainment programs and news outlets every year. And every week, he provides box office analysis for the Associated Press and Box Office magazine.
This week, for example, he said this about the Friday the 13th remark to Bloomberg News: “No matter how many people he kills, Jason is alive and well.”
