Oscar By The Numbers: Which Nominees Are Hot (Jennifer Lawrence) & Not Based On Yahoo! Searches

Oscar Predictions Jennifer Lawrence

With the Academy Awards just three days away, the Internets are being overworked by bloggers and moviegoers obsessed with staying up on the latest in Oscar news. I also wouldn't put it past awards season's prime navigator Harvey Weinstein to have a boiler room full of trained chimpanzees plugging in Jennifer Lawrence's name and "Silver Linings Playbook" into all the top search engines, such as Yahoo!, for instance.  The web portal has collected some interesting data about Oscar-related searches, which I've culled below: 

*Jennifer Lawrence is the most searched Oscar-nominated actor this year. Searches for Jennifer Lawrence in the past year on Yahoo! are seven times higher than for Bradley Cooper.

*Searches for Seth McFarlane are up 1644% in the past 7 days on Yahoo!. He is the top searched "seth" followed by Seth Green, Seth Meyers Seth Curry, and Seth Rogen. No pressure, Rogen!
