La La Land, Viola Davis are most tweeted-about Oscar nominees
It seems like Twitter users are off in La La Land. According to data released from the social networking site, Damien Chazelle’s movie musical has dominated the Oscars conversation on Twitter.
Between Jan. 23 (the day before the nominees were announced) and Feb. 22, La La Land was the most tweeted-about Oscar-nominated film, based on instances of “La La Land,” “#LaLaLand,” and “@LaLaLand” in tweets. Moonlight, Arrival, Fences, and Hidden Figures round out the top five.
La La Land, which swept the musical-comedy categories at the Golden Globes, also recently topped Oscar-related data from Google searches.
Viola Davis, who earned her third Oscar nomination this year for Fences, was the most tweeted-about actor during that same time period, after she won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress. La La Land‘s Emma Stone, Moonlight‘s Mahershala Ali, Florence Foster Jenkins‘ Meryl Streep, and Lion‘s Dev Patel followed behind.
