One of the great things about awards season is that it provides a rich field for statistic analysis. Attentive viewers can use the Golden Globes (the first major awards show of the season) and SAG Awards (the second) as a sort of predictive measure for the major acting awards at the Oscars.

Did we just step back? Did women and people of color just get slapped to the back of the line again with Thursday's Oscar nominations?
