Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway Responsible for Top Twitter Moments from the Golden Globes

By: Josh Wolford - January 14, 2013

With the declaration “I beat Meryl,” Louisville, KY native Jennifer Lawrence accepted the Golden Globe for Best Actress (Comedy). That speech also put her over the top in another way, as she is also responsible for the most-tweeted about moment of last night’s ceremony.

According to Twitter, the highest spike in tweets-per-minute during the awards occurred when Lawrence won her Globe. That spike hit 19,886 TPM.

“Harvey [Weinstein], thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here today,” said Lawrence during her acceptance speech.

Coming in a close second (19,695 TPM) for most-buzzed about moment was Anne Hathaway, as she was accepting her award for Best Supporting Actress (Comedy/Musical) for her role in Les Miserables.

And in third was former President Bill Clinton, who received a standing ovation as he appeared on stage to introduce Steven Spielberg’s epic Lincoln for consideration. That generated 18,290 TPM.

In all, Twitter reports 4.2 million total Golden Globes-related tweets in the past 24 hours, and 3.6 when you just count the red carpet and the actual show.

We’re pretty sure Tommy Lee Jones was unimpressed with all of it.
