Both stars set the Twittersphere ablaze as they collect their awards
After Gaga won for her role on “American Horror Story” and DiCaprio for his role in “The Revenant,” they both set Twitter on fire, claiming the most talked about moments of the night, according to Twitter analytics.
Gaga’s tearful speech was the most talked about moment, while DiCaprio’s speech, in which he advocated for the world’s indigenous peoples and the environment, came in second. Third place went to USA’s hacker drama “Mr. Robot,” for its win in the Best Television Series – Drama category.
DiCaprio let his environmentalist flag fly during his acceptance speech, saying,”I want to share this award with all the First Nations people represented in [‘The Revenant’] and all the indigenous communities around the world … It is time that we heard your voice and protect this planet for future generations.”
Tweets from the red carpet, celebrity photos behind the scenes and reactions from fans were a lively complement to the Golden Globes broadcast, which generated more than 4.4 million Tweets globally.
