The 2014 Academy Awards host certainly made the night interesting by ordering pizza to the show, but what really made her memorable in the night was a selfie! Ellen Degeneres’ Oscars selfie was seen all over the internet, topping the Twitter charts. So, you may wonder, what was so special about this selfie? It was jampacked with celebrities! If you watch the video of the selfie being taken you can see Ellen being mobbed by a group of superstars! The picture was snapped by Bradley Cooper and included Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o and Angelina Jolie. The picture also included Peter Nyong’o- the brother Lupita Nyong’o- and Jared Leto. Even though you can only see the side of Jared’s face, we know who that face belongs to!
Ellen’s tweet was enormously popular, it had more retweets than any other tweet in the history of the website! Not only that, but the tweet spread so quickly that it actually crashed the site! Don’t worry, Twitter was up and running again soon. But breaking the record for most tweets wasn’t the only history making moment for this selfie, it was also Meryl Streep’s first ever addition to Twitter! Wow! Pretty impressive for a selfie!
