It’s Oscars weekend and our friends at Facebook have given us the exclusive inside scoop on all the buzz surrounding the most Liked contenders ahead of Sunday night.
Now for Best Picture, Les Misérables is the clear frontrunner with 1.2 million likes, while Django Unchained has an impressive 723,000 likes and is generating the most chatter on Facebook.
It looks like teens aged 13-17 are hoping Les Misérables or Life of Pi win Best Picture, while those between 45-55 are the biggest history buffs, wishing Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln wins the big prize.
And it’s no surprise that the ladies are rooting for Hugh Jackman to win Best Actor and Jessica Chastain for Best Actress. Meanwhile, most men think Jennifer Lawrence will take home the Best Actress trophy and they predict Daniel Day-Lewis will be crowned Best Actor.
Although Les Misérables is set in France, the number one city for fans who have Liked the film on Facebook is London, England. The British accents used by the actors in the film might have something to do with it, or it might be all the huge musical theatre-goers that are the most enthralled by the theatre production that translated to the big screen.
