Oscar winners predictions based on Facebook and twitter mentions: infographic

The Academy Awards are fast approaching, and a Seattle-based social media agency has generated predictions of Oscar winners based on Facebook and twitter mentions of hte nominees. The study by Banyan Branch is based on mentions from February 21, 2011, to the same date this year. 

 Some interesting findings include:

  • The Help generated the most likes on Facebook and Twitter mentions of all the films nominated
  • Hugo and The Artist received the greatest number of nominations but a low level of social interactions
  • Brad Pitt has the greatest overall social share of voice of all the nominated actors, but only a small portion of those posts actually reference his role in Moneyball
  • Viola Davis, while not favoured to win over heavyweight Meryl Streep, had the greatest share of voice in US conversations of the actresses nominated.
