Nominees for best picture don't always make the most dough at the box office -- certainly not this year with the "Dark Knight" snub.

Here are the figures for North American box-office performance as of Monday for the new Oscar best-picture nominees, compiled by AP:

-- "Frost/Nixon," Universal, five nominations, $8.8 million, released Dec. 5.
-- "Milk," Focus, eight nominations, $20.5 million, released Nov. 26.
-- "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," Paramount, 13 nominations, $103.6 million, released Dec. 25.
