This Is What Everyone Was Googling This Year – And The Results Might Surprise You

Wondering about the most popular Google searches this year? Look no further, as Google Trends provides a comprehensive breakdown. The lists cover diverse categories such as news, sports, and entertainment, encompassing the globally and regionally most searched terms.

The HBO series “The Last of Us,” a post-apocalyptic adaptation of a renowned video game franchise, captured widespread attention, making its lead actor Pedro Pascal the fifth most searched actor in the annual rankings. Notably, the films “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” secured the top two spots as the most searched movies, both released during the “Barbenheimer” weekend in late July. This peculiar juxtaposition prompted many to humorously compare and view both films consecutively on the same day.

The year 2023 witnessed unexpected pairings, exemplified by Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce emerging as one of the most searched individuals, fueled in part by his high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift since July. Intriguingly, while Swift did not make an appearance on any of Google’s global trending search lists, Kelce secured the fifth spot in the overall person category and claimed the third position among the most searched athletes.
