More than 43.000 visitors watched Oscar nominaions 2001 announcement online



Oscar nominations 2011 has been outlined. And it has attracted tens of thousands of people online for the live coverage of the event which took place at 8:39 am EST. Since there'll be zillions of sites listing and talking about the oscar 2011 nominations, I decided to stick to some online live viewers stats. Here's my findings:


As it was stated earlier, the live event would start at 08:30 AM EST so I started my findings as of this exact time frame. Official site for live streaming of Oscar nominations for 2011 was http://oscar.go.com. They had built their streaming structure over http://www.livestream.com

As the time was ticking 08:30 AM EST, there were 25.516 online viewers standing by waiting to see the nominations of Oscar 2011. And the rest of my 25 minutes long statistic hunt is as follows

25.516 viewers @ 08:30 intro began
26.460 viewers @ 08:31
27.611 viewers @ 08:33

27.561 viewers @ 08:52
26.783 viewers @ 08:53 replay began
24.921 viewers @ 08:54

During 25 minutes of online viewing, number of online viewers started with 25.516 and began increasing. Peak point was 42.931. The same number of online viewers showed up after 24 minutes of the introduction of Oscar nominations 2001 live coverage.

However these stats do not imply the exact number of visitors who were watching the announcement live. There were several comers and leavers. And the peak numbers seem to be restricted by time frame. It was only 08:30 am in the morning EST, hence earlier through out to the west. Anyway, Oscar Academy Award winners of 2011 will be announced on 27th of February 2011.
