Posted on February 25th 2013
The Oscars are Hollywood's biggest night for celebrating achievements in film and the reaction this year on social media was at an all-time high in volume. What's amazing to see is that people both at home and celebrities in attendance took to basically the same web forums to voice their opinions. So how did your favorite celebrities and films stack up social media sites like Facebook and Twitter this year? Fortunately, we have new data just released from Facebook, Twitter and Google to find out!
Twitter Reactions to the Oscars
There were over 8.9 million tweets on Twitter about the 85th Academy Awards with 2.1 million during the red carpet, and 6.8 million during the awards show.

Facebook Oscar Buzz
The buzz this year about the Academy Awards also reached an all-time high on Facebook. The "Oscars" received three times more mentions this year than in 2012. Les Miserables had the most likes of this year's top films but it was Django Unchained racking up the most mentions amongst its peers (people who were also likely to have liked Pulp Fiction). While Steven Speilberg's "Lincoln" didn't take home Best Picture, it was still a favorite for people ages 45 and up and history buffs (highly connected with the History Channel page). Of course Jennifer Lawrence was the most-talked about nominated actress. Best Picture "Argo" was the most talked about winner of the night, as mentions of the film grew by 2460% during Ben Afflecks acceptance speech, when mentions of the actor then also increased by 23,500%. Other moments of importance included Seth MacFarlan's impersonation of the Flying Nun, Mark Whalberg's appearance with Ted, the talking teddy bear and the musical performance by Best Original Song winner Adele. For the rest of the top moments from the Academy Awards this year on Facebook, check out their infographic below:
