The Most Popular Instagram Posts From Oscar Night

Lady Gaga Instagram

It’s little surprise that an event like the Academy Awards would set social media on fire. While Twitter buzzed with the hashtag #Oscars, Instagram users expressed their “awe” with double taps and comments.

Nineteen million Instagram accounts had 64 million interactions during the Oscars’ broadcast.

Golden Globe winner Lady Gaga took in the most likes for an Instagram photo posted by a celebrity with over 500,000 likes. The “American Horror Story: Hotel” star posted a photo embracing her partner, Taylor Kinney, with a caption celebrating his love for her — “He stood by me all night proud and unashamedly.”

A photo of Oscar host Chris Rock with comedians Kevin Hart and Dave Chappelle came second, bringing in over 440,000 likes. Singer John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen also made the list of the top five most-liked photos for Oscar night — along with other photos posted by Hart and Gaga.

Videos were no strangers to the Oscar’s “double tap” power either.

A clip of Rock ordering breakfast at a McDonalds was a top-viewed video leading up to the award show, garnering 40,000 likes. Videos from E! red carpet correspondent Ryan Seacrest and actress Reese Witherspoon also fell on the list.

The Academy Awards stayed active throughout the night on Instagram sharing clips from the red carpet, backstage and winners’ first responses.

Take a look at some of the top Instagram content below.
