Being a Pisces, I guess I will never be likely to win an Oscar (any opportunity to once again quote Luis Bu√±uel who said, ‚ÄúNothing would disgust me more morally than receiving an Oscar. Nothing in the world would make me go accept it. I wouldn‚Äôt have it in my home.‚Äù)
Reader Houston Roderick decided to put astrology to the test by counting the number of Oscar winners by their zodiac signs. Aries came out the clear winner, followed by Taurus. Aries males, apparently, are the most powerful to help one win an Oscar.
Oh, and I think Hitler was an Aries. ¬†He was on the cusp of Aries and Taurus apparently.
The stats and graph after the cut.
-I took my data off of IMDB, where it said what sign everyone was.
-This is the number of times each sign has won, not number of individuals. All the wins by actors who won multiple acting oscars were counted.
-I didn’t take any of the Honorary oscars into account.
Some interesting facts from doing this:
-Every sign has won in every acting category at least once.
-Aries has both the highest number of Best Actor wins (12) and Best Supporting Actor wins (14), as well as the highest total of all four acting categories.
-While tied with Libra for the lowest number of wins, Sagittarius has the highest number of Best Supporting Actress wins (11).
-Leo won more acting oscars in the last decade (11) than any sign in any decade.
-Capricorn has the highest ratio of Lead wins with 73% getting Actor or Actress.
-Aquarius and Gemini tie for the highest ratio of Supporting wins with 64% getting Supporting Actor or Supporting Actress.
-Aquarius has the highest ratio of men who win with 68% getting Actor or Supporting Actor.
-Scorpio and Libra tie for the highest ratio of females who win with 67% getting Actress and Supporting Actress
