The Oscars 2014 is now the proud home of THE best celebrity selfie of all time. We mean it. The best.
While the rest of the Dolby Theatre in LA were enjoying the evening’s glamorous proceedings, US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres was busy rounding up her most A-list mates and squeezing them into the selfie-of-all-selfies. Oh Ellen, how we love you…
The photo features Hollywood’s finest, including Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey and Lupita Nyong’o, pulling their cheesiest grins for the camera as Bradley strains to fit the impressive sea of famous faces into the seriously superb snap.
Tweeting the picture on her own account with the caption: ‘If only Bradley’s arm was longer. Best photo ever. #oscars’, the picture has now become the most retweeted photograph EVER, beating the record previously held by President Obama himself.
Racking up a whopping 800,000 retweets in just half an hour, the record-breaking selfie has now claimed over two million retweets.
The Oscars host later said that Twitter had temporarily crashed because of her actions, before announcing: ‘We really just made history. We’re all winners tonight.’
We’re printing this one out and framing it. Brilliant.
