The Venice Film Festival ended last Saturday crowning Guillermo del Toro with the top prize Golden Lion. During the event we assigned “social media prizes” to actors and influencers who got more likes and interactions. Who are the winners? Let’s check it out!

The 22-year-old Brazilian actress Bruna Marquezine occupies the top spot in the ranking. Bruna, with a huge follower base of 22 million people only on Instagram, drew everybody’s attention on herself wearing Alberta Ferretti gowns. With only 7 posts, she reached the peak of 3.4 million interactions in just 3 days.
