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:
