Leo Finally Won His First Oscar and Twitter Went Crazy

If you were like us last night, you were on the edge of your couch waiting for Julianne Moore to announce the winner for Best Actor. And, after 23 years of waiting…Leonardo DiCaprio finally took home the Oscar for his leading role in The Revenant!

Not only were we swooning with excitement, but fans across the world took to Twitter to show their love for the actor. Below is the Sentiment Analysis graph that our Zoomph feed generated after tracking #Oscars on Twitter last night.

Once Leo was announced as the Academy Award winner last night at 11:55pm, the positive sentiment around the #Oscars quickly accelerated to 125k positive tweets.

Not only did Leo steal the show when he received his award and made his acceptance speech, but according to our social media listening platform, it looks like he was the star of the entire night: Leo was the top mentioned Twitter handle of the night with 203.9k mentions followed by Lady Gaga, The Academy, Chris Rock and E! Online.

The White House even took advantage of Leo’s acceptance speech when he spoke about raising awareness for climate change. The White House rose to the top of our #Oscars search for tweeting the most influential post of the night, landing a whopping ZPoints score of 154.

 
Of course you can’t live tweet without getting emojinal! Among the top emojis were 6faaa08700cb0741e8ba3c5fed121449 and 7f0bccb662b205850c0f5da998179bd1, and to no one’s surprise, the top handle associated with both was @leodicaprio. ­
