The tech company released their end-of-year search data on Wednesday, revealing some unsurprising trends in their most-searched celebs. They also tracked the year in pop culture with the biggest movies, TV, music and more.

Scandal also landed celebs like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and Kathy Griffin in the top 10. Perhaps the only two non-controversial entries were Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot and actress Meghan Markle.
