Face it: you're going to get stuck in a conversation about the Oscars very soon. This infographic can help you have something scintillating to say.

MTV has drawn up this extensive factsheet to blow your mind with stats.

For instance, did you know that Emma Stone was -9 years old when Meryl Streep was first nominated for an Oscar? Or that the difference between the highest-grossing Best Picture nominee (American Sniper) and lowest-grossing Best Picture nominee (Whiplash) is a staggering $88,500,000?
