Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The two pie charts show the types of movies that won an Oscar in two different time periods, 2003 and 2008.

In 2003, almost half of the Oscar winning movies were thrillers, while less than a quarter were action and horror movies. Comedy, romance and science fiction had about 10% of the Oscar awards each and documentaries a little more than this.

Five years later, in 2008, the proportion of thrillers winning an Oscar dropped to a third. About a quarter of Oscar winning movies were action films while the proportion of romance, comedy and documentary film winners remained the same and science fiction Oscar winning films increased slightly.

To conclude, in both years the most Oscars were given to thriller films. More Oscars were given to action and documentary movies in 2008 while there was a drop in the number of Oscars received for horror films. All other genres of movies received about the same number of Oscars in 2003 as they did in 2008.
