Idris Elba, Kate Winslet and Steve McQueen triumphed at the Golden Globes. At least they did online according to an infographic from content recommendation network, Outbrain.

Unlike the 'real' awards where Winslet lost out to Blanchett, Elba to McConaghey and McQueen to Cuarón, Outbrain analysed 11,000 stories across their network, between 1-8th January reviewing the consumption rate and volume of stories published.

The campaign

We partnered with Virgin Media and, via Fifty6 Media, the Mo Farah Foundation, to launch the campaign – raising profile and proceeds for the most vulnerable across East Africa.
