The pie charts show the proportions of Oscar winners for seven different genres of film in 2003 and 2008. Between 2003 and 2008 the proportion of films that won Oscars changed for nearly all the genres.
In particular, many more action films and science fiction films gained Oscars in 2008 than in 2003. The proportion of thrillers that won Oscars went down from about half of the total in 2003 to a third in 2008. The number of horror films that won Oscars also decreased by about half from 2003 to 2008. Action, documentary and science fiction films all increased their share of Oscars between 2003 and 2008. Action films increased from about 20 per cent of the total in 2003 to almost a quarter in 2008. The proportion of Oscar winners for documentaries, romance and science fiction all increased by approximately fifty percent between 2003 and 2008. The percentage for comedy films which won Oscars stayed the same in 2003 and 2008 at about 5 per cent.
