Last week, we introduced you to some great search features to keep up with the 82nd Academy Awards. The coveted statuettes have been distributed and the post-show analysis is in full swing!
The buzziest acceptance speeches of the evening: Sandra Bullock and Mo’Nique – although the story behind Elinor Burkett and her so-called “hijacked” acceptance speech blazed a path through search logs on Monday.
The buzz, of course, is never simply about who won. One of our favorite ways to explore major events is to check out the questions they inspired in search. One standout: “Are the Oscars the same as the Academy Awards?” (Why, yes!)
A sampling of notable Oscar 2010 search questions:
- Who won Best Actress? – the biggest award category in search questions
- Has Meryl Streep ever won an Oscar?
- What does Hurt Locker mean? – a big theme in search, coupled with “What is The Hurt Locker about?”
- How tall is Kathryn Bigelow?
- Are Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jake Gyllenhaal related?
- Who votes for the Oscars?
