The moment Leonardo DiCaprio finally took the best actor prize was the most tweeted moment of an Oscar telecast ever according to data from Twitter.

DiCaprio’s win for his performance in The Revenant, after missing out on a golden statue on five previous occasions, set social media ablaze and led to 440,000 tweets per minute, beating out the previous record of 255,000 Tweets per minute set in 2014 when Oscar host Ellen Degeneres tweeted a star-studded selfie that “broke the Internet.”

Aside from DiCaprio’s long-awaited triumph, the evening’s other top tweeted moments included Spotlight’s surprise win in the best film category and Mad Max: Fury Road picking up the award for sound mixing, its sixth Oscar of the night.
