If you were also glued to the Academy Awards last night to see if The Social Network would triumph over The King’s Speech (I knew Colin Firth would beat Jesse Eisenberg!), you might be interested in these very cool Oscar statistics compiled by AddThis.
Among their findings:
Black Swan generated the most buzz even though it didn’t win the top prize. Viewers searched and shared information on the movie more than any other nominee during the 5 days leading up to the ceremony and during the ceremony itself.
The Kings Speech and Colin Firth only generated a lot of interest upon winning, even though Colin was looking particularly scrumptious sitting in the front row. Host and nominee James Franco had substantially more audience interest than Firth throughout the show, which I just don’t get.
The stars who generated the most searches during the ceremony were Charlie Sheen, who wasn’t even there, and Anne Hathaway, co-host and non-nominee.
