And the award goes to….

by on March 3, 2014

Well the Oscars have been and gone for another year.  But in honour we have pulled out some age related headlines.

Did you know for example that Oscar Winners live longer than nominees, according to this article in businessinsider.com.  The oldest winner was Christopher Plummer who received his award aged 82 whilst receiving hers at the tender age of 10, Tatum O’Neal remains the youngest.  While here you can see a calculation of the Prime age to win an Oscar (as at 2012) which shows that the average difference between the categories of actor and actress is 8 years (in case it needs saying – that’s the actress’s being on average 8 yrs younger).  As this site (overthinkingit.com) points out there are two age related tendencies that need to be considered when looking at average figures however: “Hollywood worships youth and beauty” AND “Hollywood loves actors who have paid their dues and waited their “turn.””
