Lights Camera Action! Scrape, explore, and model to predict Oscar winners & box office hits

Deborah Hanus, Patricia Hanus, Sebastian Hanus, Veronica Hanus


Using Jupyter notebooks, HTTP requests, BeautifulSoup, NumPy, Pandas, scikit learn, and matplotlib, you’ll predict whether a movie is likely to [win an Oscar]( or be a box office hit. We’ll step through the creation of an effective dataset: asking a question your data can answer, writing a web scraper, and answering those questions using nothing but Python libraries and data from the Internet.
