Live events stole the show.
From Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour to the Coronation of King Charles, 2023 saw plenty of once-in-a-lifetime events that people were eager to witness. The Coronation was voted as the most talked about live event of 2023, while Taylor Swift was voted the most talked about person of the year.

Movies and TV made a comeback.
We started out the year with a bang on the small screen as The Last of Us debuted on HBO in January, averaging over 32 million viewers per episode every Sunday night. The Bear season 2 stole our hearts, Succession destroyed them, and on the big screen, we finally had some non-Marvel blockbusters to look forward to. A whopping 85% of respondents said that Barbie was the most talked about movie of 2023, but The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Oppenheimer were also massive successes at the box office.
