Which Best Actress Oscar nominee has the longest (and shortest) screen time?
Over the past 10 years, the academy has not demonstrated a clear performance length preference with their choices of Best Actress winners. While the actress with the highest or second highest screen time in her lineup has prevailed five times, the one with the lowest or second lowest has done so in four years and the one in the middle once. Last year’s victor, Renée Zellweger (“Judy”), outpaced her competitors by over two minutes and 5%, while the champ before her, Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”), had the lowest total in her group by over 12 minutes and 20%.

It is essentially impossible to forecast the results of a given Best Actress Oscar race using screen time data, but it does appear that somewhat longer performances are more likely to prevail. The current crop of voters could continue the Zellweger trend or just as easily shift the focus back to smaller roles, making this anyone’s game to win.
