Here's how Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony broke down by the numbers, from how many people watched to the number of Trump allusions during acceptance speeches.
Not many people griped about how long the Oscars ran overtime during Sunday's ceremony, thanks to the shocking best picture blunder that came at the show's tail end.
But the ceremony did have a few numbers worth considering.
Here are some key figures from the Oscars and how they factored into the show. (And in case you were wondering, it clocked in at three hours 49 minutes, ending around 12:19 a.m. ET).2 minutes 29 seconds
That's how long La La Land was best picture — from the moment it was announced by Faye Dunaway to when La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz broke the news that a mistake had been made and Moonlight was the actual winner.
During those moments, the elated cast and crew of La La Land took to the stage, where Horowitz and fellow producers Marc Platt and Fred Berger delivered victory speeches, all while members of the show's staff and accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers scrambled behind them to correct the error.
"This is not a joke," Horowitz told the crowd, shortly after announcing the real winner and still clutching onto the trophy he had just been given. "I'm going to be really proud to hand this to my friends from Moonlight."600 per cent
The number of Google searches for Steve Harvey skyrocketed after Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel jokingly blamed him for the fiasco moments after it happened.

Harvey endured similar embarrassment in 2015, when he announced the wrong winner during the Miss Universe pageant. He offered advice to Dunaway's co-presenter Warren Beatty on Monday, telling him to handle the flub with "dignity and grace."
"Warren, I know your pain."7 hours 47 minutes
O.J.: Made in America not only snagged the prize for documentary feature but also the distinction of being the longest film to ever win an Oscar, with a running time of seven hours 47 minutes.
It tops the seven-hour 11-minute epic War and Peace, which won best foreign language film in 1969.2 Trump allusions
U.S. President Donald Trump was never explicitly mentioned during any of the night's 24 acceptance speeches. But two of the winners did allude to the U.S. president's controversial actions.
Asghar Farhadi, director of the foreign-language film winner The Salesman, skipped the awards ceremony to protest Trump's travel ban, which he called "inhumane." The ban affects Iran, Farhadi's home country, and six other countries, something mentioned in the director's statement read out on his behalf by Iranian-born U.S. engineer and astronaut Anousheh Ansari.
Moonlight director Barry Jenkins also alluded to Trump while accepting his award for best adapted screenplay. He wore a blue ribbon in support of the American Civil Liberties Union and vowed not to forget those whose rights were threatened.
"For the next four years, we will not leave you alone, we will not forget you," he said.
Kimmel did refer to the president by name, poking fun at his behaviour and baiting him with a couple of mid-show tweets. Trump kept quiet during the show, but did weigh in Monday, telling Breitbart News the show had flubbed because "they were focused so hard on politics."
Hey @realDonaldTrump u up?— @jimmykimmel 1st Muslim actor to win an Oscar
Sunday's show got off to a historic start, with the night's first prize (best supporting actor) going to the first Muslim actor to win an Oscar — Mahershala Ali for his performance in Moonlight. Ali didn't mention the milestone in his speech, but was asked about it in the press room backstage.
He told reporters he didn't necessarily feel religion was relevant in this circumstance.
"I'm just an artist who feels blessed to have had the opportunities that I have had and try to do the most with every opportunity that's come my way."32.9 million
That's how many people watched the broadcast, according to Nielsen. That's about a million less than last year, when 34.3 million people tuned in to see Chris Rock host.
It's also the show's smallest audience in almost a decade, dating back to 2008, when 32 million viewers watched Jon Stewart host.
