One of my biggest interest is Cinema, especially Italian movies.
I love to follow Oscars, BAFTA, Golden Globes, Festival of Cannes, Venezia and so on.
For this Oscars I was really inspired by one of the Viz of the day of this month about The Beatles and I want to make something similar.
But what story ? Best directors? Best Actors? Best Actresses? Too many options!!
And then I got the right idea: most Oscar-Nominated people in Academy History!
From the IMDB website I collected the data for Maryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis and Laurence Olivier.
My dataset was pretty straight-forward:
Actor/actress, nominated movies, IMDB rating, Year, tot nominations, 1 if the film won an Oscar, the Role (leading or supporting) and so on.
I want to have the Academy Award on the top of the nominated movie if the film won an Oscar.
How do you do that?
On columns I put the nominated movies (sorted by the year) and on rows the IMDB rating (to size the films). I made a dual axis and added 0.5 to the second one (and synchronize it).
At the end I sized the Academy Awards until I got the perfect match:
Hope you like it!
See you soon!
