Critics and audiences often see Oscar best-picture nominees very differently

Using the data from Rotten Tomatoes, a site that aggregates film ratings from both critics and everyday viewers, Quartz made a visualization that shows how scores from these two groups have differed for every best-picture nomination since 1990. By Tapping or hovering the icon for the audience score and the critic's score the user is able to see the specific score. The visualization makes it easy to compare the different movies nominated for each year, understanding if what the Academy considers to be the best film of the year is the most popular candidate among the critics and the audience.
