Title: And the Oscar goes to ..... Peeeeedrooooo!
Authors: Aray, Henry
Agnani, Betty
Issue Date: 2007
Abstract: In this article we are interested in how the production of Spanish feature films reacts to an Oscar award. We use time series data for the 1953-2008 period and estimate a production function assuming that the Oscar effect accrues through an augmenting input factor. We consider a lag structure that allows the Oscar to have a diminishing effect over time. In general our evidence supports a positive Oscar effect. Nevertheless, the only significant Oscar award at the 1% and 5% levels is that of Talk to Her, which Penélope Cruz euphorically announced with her celebrated cry.
