A sociable star
Searches for 'jared leto oscar' spiked by a massive 28x this year but were still outdone by searches for his Instagram account.
In search of a winner
Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, stars of Dallas Buyers Club, were the first duo since 1959 to pick up Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for the same movie. But Leto won the battle of search, possibly due to his social media presence and band, 30 Seconds to Mars; queries for both spiked during the Academy Awards.
Dallas Buyers Club is a 2013 biographical drama starring Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto. Interest in the movie jumped 8x this year after it won three Oscars in March.
McConaughey won Best Actor for his exceptional performance in the movie, but it wasn't his only moment in 2014. The crime series True Detective and the space epic Interstellar both spiked in search.
The creator of the original Dallas Buyers Club and the inspiration behind McConaughey's character, 'ron woodroof', was the third most searched term related to the movie.
"Tonight I stand here in front of the world with you and for you."
Searches for Leto's Best Supporting Actor Oscar acceptance speech were off the charts, as he described his love for his family and co-workers and showed his solidarity for those affected by HIV and injustice.
Leto hugs it out, and everyone gets in on the action.
'Memes jared leto' rose 7x in search this year. After Leto posted a snap of himself hugging a tree, the internet seized the opportunity to continue this trend through the year.
