Oscar Nominees Infographic

In all the hubbub leading up to the Academy Awards, it’s easy to forget that the annual awards ceremony is meant to be fun — at least for the people sitting at home and gleefully filling out ballots and downing designer popcorn, we suspect it’s an entirely different story for those sitting in the audience, waiting to hear their names called (or, as it more often the case, not called). Since we’re willing to be that the vast majority of our readership will not be hitting Hollywood this Sunday to potentially pick up a little golden man (and, please, correct us if we’re wrong), now seems like as good at time as any to indulge in some pre-Oscars fun. You know what that means. Infographics. Not just any infographics, however, but some of the very best of the season, the kind that are visually appealing and packed with nifty facts, from tricky depictions of Best Picture winners, swanky takes on award-winning gowns, a new theory about Jennifer Lawrence, and even a clean-lined take on some of Hollywood’s worst diversity missteps. Fun!


Gender Inequality

Still not sure that even a creative field like filmmaking isn’t progressive enough to smash consistent chatter about something as nasty as gender inequality? Think again. Or, at least, take a peek at a visually appealing presentation that lays plain plenty of facts, numbers, and observations we might otherwise be ignoring. The New York Film Academy has just put together a new look at gender inequality in film by way of a very snazzy infographic, and despite its easily digestible format, most of the numbers aren’t very easy to swallow. As the team at NYFA puts it, “it is clear that Hollywood remains stuck in its gender bias.” There is, however, some good news, especially when it comes to independent film, so here’s hoping that those eventually trickle up into big studio films and weren’t not stuck looking at this same infographic in a decade. Check out the full infographic after the break (it’s a doozy – get ready to scroll!), along with some observations about some of the unsurprising (yet still upsetting) revelations it contains.
