Are the Oscars getting snootier?

I enjoyed this analysis at of trends in the Oscars – in terms of how popular films compared to how likely they are to win, or be nominated.  There is a very clear change around 2004 when the popularity of Oscar films fell through the floor.

It good to see someone getting out the figures instead of just winging for a change.  Note that the figures can’t distinguish between whether the Oscars are snootier – or whether its movie-goers that are not going to the best films…
