What were the most tweeted moments of this year's Oscars?

Last Sunday, during the 87th Academy Award ceremony, the twitter world exploded with millions of tweets as viewers were joining the conversation using the relevant hashtags. As a matter of fact, about 6 million tweets were generated from this year's Oscars.

Surprisingly or not, the most tweeted moment and most tweeted celebrity of the night was nor a nominee, host, movie or award acceptance. It was actually the music performance of the superstar Lady Gaga which stole the show. No bizarre costumes, extreme back up dancers,  or any of her famous pop hits that everyone might expected to see. In fact, she gave a spectacular power-vocal performance as a tribute to The Sound Of Music. She was then joined by Julie Andrews on stage for the 50th anniversary of the musical, receiving a standing ovation from the crowd. That was by far the most tweeted moment of the night with more than 60000 tweets. Additionally, Gaga can also brag about being the most tweeted person of the 2015 Oscars with more than 129000 mentions.







The 2nd most tweeted moment of the ceremony was when Alejandro Inarritu won Best picture for Birdman. However, tweets included lots of hate comments (5582) as not everyone was happy about the result. Birdman was the biggest movie of the night, winning a total of 4 awards.



Patty Arquette's acceptance speech for winning the Best supporting actress award for the movie Boyhood, was the 3rd most tweeted moment of this year's Oscars. During her surprising speech she talked about human rights and equal pay for women receiving a warm cheer from the audience, including Meryl Streep.
