The hilarious duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globes on NBC last night, sparking 3.6 million tweets during the broadcast — 4.2 million overall for the last 24 hours. With a night packed full of moments, Twitter tallied the top three tweet spikes:
1. Jennifer Lawrence winning Best Actress in a comedy or musical: 19,886 TPM
2. Anne Hathaway winning Best Supporting Actress in a comedy or musical: 19,695 TPM
3. President Bill Clinton introduces ‘Lincoln’: 18,290 TPM
In a completely unscientific analysis, my tweet stream seemed the most active during Fey and Poehler’s monologue, especially with the James Cameron joke. “The show’s opening dialogue had only one flaw — it had to end,” explains the LA Times, adding they “made awards-show hosting an art form again.”
The ratings seem to agree: the show was up 12% over last year, setting the high bar since 2007. You can bet they’ll be back.
