So the Oscars are over, and looking back the data was able to predict that Natalie Portman would win Best Actress, but the data was misleading on Best Movie and Best Actor.
Last night we also pulled data as the Oscars were happening. Â It was great to see in real time how our data changed based on what was taking place on the TV. Â Check out the chart below, you can see how searches for James Franco spiked during the opening monologue, and Colin Firth got a huge jump after winning Best Actor.
While Inception did not win for Best Picture (sorry, Jordan), the King’s Speech was a terrific movie, even if it did not capture the internet’s attention as much as the other movie’s out there.
