Lady Gaga’s win for American Horror Story: Hotel is officially the most-talked-about moment of the 2016 Golden Globes.

Not only did Gaga top the list of the buzziest Golden Globes moments on Twitter, but according to data just released by Facebook, her big win was also the biggest moment on Facebook, too. Gaga won for best actress in a limited series, her first-ever Globe nomination and win.

In all, more than 9 million people took to Facebook to talk about this year’s Globes, generating more than 19 million posts, likes, and comments. While Gaga’s win was the biggest news, The Martian winning best comedy came in second, while Leonardo DiCaprio’s best actor win for The Revenant was the third most-talked-about moment of the night. Other buzzy highlights include Taraji P. Henson’s Empire win, Mozart in the Jungle’s surprise success, and host Ricky Gervais introducing Mel Gibson.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association also partnered with Facebook to stream live answers to fan questions backstage. (Jennifer Lawrence’s kneejerk response, when she heard there would be fan questions: “I would choose Peeta.”) Facebook also put together an exclusive 360-degree video from the red carpet, showcasing stars like Julianne Moore, Rachel McAdams, Rob Lowe, Dwayne Johnson, Harrison Ford, and more.
