Graphic Proof This Year's Likely Oscar Nominees Are Shorter Than Last Year

A quick Google search will tell you that last year's Oscar nominees for Best Picture were long. And while this year's nominations won't happen for a few more months, the films likely to fill those spots this year are shorter. A lot shorter. It's not ground breaking information or anything, but Vulture has taken the running times of recent Best Picture nominees and made some fun graphics showing how they compare. Check them out below.

Thanks to Vulture for these infographics.

With the exception of The Wolf of Wall Street, it seems this year's nominees are actually pretty short, especially in comparison to years past. Do you think there's a reason for this trend, or is it just coincidence?
