GoldenGlobeAward650The winners of the 71st annual Golden Globes Awards were revealed during the televised ceremony Sunday night, but how did Facebook activity in the week leading up to the event match up with the eventual results? The social network provided data to Mashable on how the nominees in four major categories stacked up, by state.

Best TV series, drama:Breaking Bad” took home the hardware but finished second to “Downton Abbey” in terms of total Facebook buzz last week.


Best TV series, comedy or musical: Winner “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” finished dead last among the five nominees on Facebook, but who’s laughing now?


Best picture, drama: Facebook users were in tune with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in this category, with both tapping 12 Years a Slave.


Best picture, comedy or musical: Golden Globes voters and users of the social network also saw eye-to-eye with their selection of American Hustle.
