This Sunday, the Academy Awards will be given out to the best of the film industry.
While the awards are chosen by the mysterious Academy members, today we’re making our predictions of which nominees will win based on what Tumblr users talked about the most. We pulled data from March 2016 (when nominee Zootopia was released) through February 2017 and analyzed original posts, reblogs, searches and likes to calculate a film’s overall Fandometrics Score and what would win an Oscar if the Tumblr community got to do the voting.
Overall, Zootopia dominated movie fandoms on Tumblr during this time period. It had 165% more engagements than the next-biggest animated film nominee, Moana. Engagement around Zootopia also blew live-action films out of the water, with a whopping 1298% more engagements thanLa La Land, the most-engaged live action film nominee.
