Canada loves the Oscars. On a per capita basis, searches for the Oscars in Canada even outpace the US. For those of you who can’t get enough of the Oscars or the Red Carpet, make sure to check out Google’s dedicated Oscar site, to see the latest search trends, red carpet sightings and to download your very own Oscar ballot.

And the most-Googled winner is....
Over the past 90 days, Canadian searches for Steven Spielberg’s historical drama, Lincoln  and the musical epic Les Miserables have been neck-and-neck. However, heading into the awards ceremony on Sunday, searches for Ben Affleck’s Argo have jumped to the head of the pack.

I would like to thank the Academy and all those Googling Canadians out there who made this post possible. And my agent.
