Mapping the Popularity of Oscar Nominees

Movie popularity

Design firm Polygraph and Google News Lab have created a series of data visualizations mapping where Oscar-nominated films are most popular in the United States. The maps show color-coded hotspots of a movie’s popularity compared to the national average, as indicated by the number of YouTube trailer views a movie received during its opening week. The maps show that many movies fall into one of three regional trends of popularity: East Coast, which includes “La La Land” and “Moonlight”; bi-coastal, which includes “Jackie” and “Manchester by the Sea”; and Midwest, which includes “Hell or High Water” and “Hacksaw Ridge.”

Take a look.
