A look back at the Oscars: Tonight was Hollywood’s biggest night for celebrating film, and Twitter hosted a global Oscars party. Whether you were cheering on your favorite nominees or just checking out behind the scenes pictures, Twitter united the audience at home with attendees at the show, bringing them closer to the glitz and glam.

All in all, there were 8.9 million Tweets about the 85th Academy Awards: 2.1 million during the red carpet, and 6.8 million during the awards show. People at home (and in the audience) tweeted as the night’s most exciting and entertaining moments unfolded. The events that drove the most conversation on Twitter this evening, based on tweets per minute, were:

Best Picture award for Argo: 85,300 TPM
Adele performs “Skyfall”: 82,300 TPM
Best Actress in a Leading Role for Jennifer Lawrence: 71,600 TPM
Best Original Song for Adele: 64,000 TPM
Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Anne Hathaway: 60,400 TPM

For many, the Oscars aren’t just about film; they’re about fashion. And people on Twitter are quick to share their picks for best (and worst) dressed of the evening. Celebrities at the show and at home tweeted their favorite looks of the night.

Is white/nude the new black? #oscars.
