Monday, 13 January 2014

Tonight, stars of the silver screen and the small screen gathered to celebrate the 71st Golden Globe Awards. Whether they were making their way down the red carpet or trekking up to the stage, they brought fans at home along for the journey via Twitter. While the run up to the show brought us closer to the stars, the party really got started on Twitter once the live broadcast began.

Throughout the telecast (8pm-11pm ET), there were more than 2.1 million Tweets about the show.

Those who weren’t seated at a table inside the @BeverlyHilton gathered on their couches to discuss the monologues, speeches, and winners. These moments drove the most conversation on Twitter:

  1. Breaking Bad wins Best Drama TV Series: 28,117 TPM
  2. Bryan Cranston wins Best Actor in a TV Drama: 24,099 TPM
  3. Jared Leto (@JaredLeto) wins Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture: 23,594 TPM

As these moments unfolded, everyone around the world, whether they were watching the program or not, joined in the conversation and tweeted about the stars. Here are the most mentioned stars of the night on Twitter:

  1. Jennifer Lawrence
  2. Jared Leto (@JaredLeto)
  3. Amy Poehler
