One Response to “Gurus o’ Gold: Oscars For The Ages”

  1. Pete says:

    It would have been more interesting to see AMPAS voting analysis by gender, race and nationality (USA, UK and rest of world). I would think these factors would be at least as determinative (and perhaps moreso) of film preferences as age.

    But these charts are nonetheless quite fascinating.

    It seems off that Dunkirk fares so poorly among the oldest members and not that well in the middle group.
