Celebrating The 83rd Oscar Awards With 83 Amazing Infographics

Categories Articles, Filmspiration

This year’s edition of the Oscars has passed, but we thought that it would be nice if we selected some of the most interesting infographics about the wonderful world of cinema.

And that’s a huge task, especially if we consider that some sagas – like Star Wars or Harry Potter – have so many infographics about them, that we could make an entire post just with them – just for you to have an idea, we have over 400 on Visual Loop!!!.

Even so, we selected some from all over the world, so we hope you enjoy it!

The Oscars

Of course we have to begin with a round-up of the many data-viz goodies made for the Oscars. Some of them were created previously to this year’s edition, but they’re filled with interesting data – and some humor as well.
