Nice follow-up to its NFL deal

Around 2.7 million Twitter users on Sunday evening viewed the digital platform's red carpet livestreaming collaboration with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) and Dick Clark Productions (DCP) for the Golden Globe Awards.

The new Fox reality TV cooking show, My Kitchen Rules, which premieres Thursday, was a lead advertiser for the live video, while brands like Cigna, Whole Foods and HBO also made appearances. A DCP rep said that such marketers saw 10 times more impressions than they were promised. 

For Twitter, the number represents a healthy follow-up to the few million viewers it got during recent Thursday Night Football games in its deal with the NFL. 

At any rate, here are two of the red carpet interviews—with actors Kerry Washington and Priyanka Chopra—that aired via Twitter that night.

The Globes, per stats provided by DCP, were tweeted about 4.7 million times, up from 4.4 million in 2016. The event was buzzy, indeed, thanks to actress Meryl Streep's speech that chastised President-elect Donald Trump for allegedly mocking a disabled reporter last year. Streep was accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, and the clip of her speech has garnered over 7 million views on Twitter in the last couple of days.

Check out what created the most Twitter chatter during the 74th Golden Globe Awards for a handful of categories, according to DCP.
