Shame, shame, New York Times.

You’re copying Muckety again.

The Times has published a Muckety-like map showing connections among Oscar nominees.

Here’s our map, showing earlier movies on which best actor nominees worked together. (The map excludes 2012 films.)

Leading the pack is Philip Seymour Hoffman, who made five movies with fellow nominees. Amy Adams have four such connections and Anne Hathaway has three.

Who are the actors with the most connections to people in the map? Our database says Meryl Streep and Hank Azaria.

Jennifer Lawrence is not in our map, yet. However, the best actress nominee for “Silver Linings Playbook” has two upcoming movies with David O. Russell, the film’s director.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Russell will direct Lawrence in “The Ends of the Earth,” a love story about an oil tycoon. She’ll also have a role in a still-untitled Russell project about Abscam, starring Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Amy Adams.
