An Insightful 2015 Oscar Predictions Infographic

Best Wooden Baby. Best Beard. Best Fluttering of a Massive Flag.
If they left Oscar categories to us - and they definitely shouldn't - American Sniper would win the lion’s share of statuettes this Sunday night. Regardless, if you cast an eye over this fact-crammed infographic, using cold hard data from previous years to guess the winners, Clint Eastwood's gritty shooter biopic still looks a safe bet.
 
At 132 minutes, the film is only eight minutes eight shy of ‘Optimum Oscar length’ – another well-collated factoid. Meanwhile, chances for Bradley Cooper and co. are also bolstered by the fact 'biopics' are the second most likely genre win after 'drama', and we all know it packs plenty of that too.
 
However, things look a little less rosy for Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, nominated in a category notoriously difficult for comedies to triumph in – only six comedy films have ever picked up the award, according to the data below. And we doubt Anderson will be buoyed by the fact his film would be the joint shortest ever winner, coming in at an OCD-friendly 100 minutes.
 
Compiled, collated and efficiently illustrated by the bods at Myvouchercodes.co.uk, it’s the ‘friend points’ information you need before buying a crate of Red Bull and preparing for a very long night.
