Matt Fiorentino, Visible Measures’ Director of Marketing said: “With the biggest stars and the biggest movies, the Oscars creates iconic moments every year, and, as we know, some moments are more viral than others. But by how much? And who has the most viral Oscars moment ever? Now, for the first time, we can quantify and rank the most viral Oscars moments ever with the The Top 10 Oscars Moments of All Time chart, from Jennifer Lawrence’s drunken press conference after winning best actress for Silver Linings Playbook, to Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey’s mesmerizing duet in 1999, to Roberto Benigni’s euphoric acceptance speech for winning best actor for La vita é bella in 1997. We look forward to the new viral moments created at the 2014 Academy Awards this Sunday.”
