Google launched its 19th annual Year in Search for 2019, listing the hottest topics of the year for the country.

Entertainment and breaking news nabbed top spots in many of the categories, as Disney+ was released amid much hype last month, and topics like deadly shootings and hurricanes shook the nation over the year.

Disney+ also gave us Baby Yoda, the breakout star of “The Mandalorian" that premiered on the streaming service, which ranked first in searches for babies.
