Lady Gaga and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Dominate the Golden Globes
Lady Gaga had a monumental 2018, thanks in large part to the film “A Star Is Born” and its soundtrack. And she’s riding the wave into 2019, with her song “Shallow” winning the Golden Globe for Best Original Song. Lady Gaga may be the most discussed celebrity with 154.9k posts (also attributed to her red carpet fashion: a blue gown similar to the one worn by Judy Garland in the 1954 version of “A Star Is Born.”) Sandra Oh, who co-hosted the ceremony with Andy Samberg, was the second most discussed celebrity. People discussed her winning the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama for “Killing Eve,” making her the first Asian actress in 39 years to win that award. For movies, “Bohemian Rhapsody” generated the most chatter, with 57.6k posts. The film celebrated two wins: the Golden Globe for Best Actor – Motion Picture – Drama and the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama. As for topics, fashion was unsurprisingly prominent in the Golden Globes discussion. However, people also discussed Time’s Up and diversity. The top emojis convey a celebratory mood, with hearts, sparkles, and applause.
