The Oscars By the Numbers

I told you that I’m a geek when it comes to the Academy Awards!

With the 88th Academy Awards just four days away, WalletHub today released its 2016 Oscars By The Numbers Report, which includes an infographic filled with fun facts about the event as well as a Q&A with a panel of leading entertainment business experts.
Some of my favorites are:

  • 2%: Of Academy Awards voters are Black (vs. 13.2% of the population)
  • 25 Years Old: Jennifer Lawrence is the youngest person ever to earn four acting nominations
  • $3,500: Average cost of preparing a Hollywood actress for the red carpet
  • $220K: Value of the 2016 Oscar Swag Bag
  • 39 Years: Between Sylvester Stallone’s two Oscar nominations for his portrayal of Rocky Balboa
  • 45 Sec: The amount to which acceptance speeches will be cut down this year, thanks to individual shout outs scrolling on the bottom of the screen.
