The 86th Academy Awards RECAP: ‘Oscar Selfie’ Breaks Twitter!
Ellen Degeneres charmed viewers with her witty personality and sly humour at the 86th Annual Academy Awards held in Hollywood inside the Dolby Theatre.
The comedian and talk show host paraded pass actors and poked fun until she decided to take a selfie “with maximum retweets” with Hollywood’s finest. 1 million retweets later, and history was made within 40 minutes.
The epic selfie not only beat Barack and Michelle Obama’s “Most rewteeted photo” record, but also temporarily crashed Twitter as a result of the traffic from her picture.
The former “Most rewteeted photo” below.
Captioned, “Four more years later.”
The selfie shows DeGeneres with Hollywood starlets (from left) Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o and her brother and half the face of Angelina Jolie. DeGeneres tweeted the picture and captioned it: “If only Bradley’s arm was longer. Best photo ever. #oscars”
Just incase the distinguished guest didn’t get the opportunity to eat before arriving; Ellen saved the night by ordering pizza! Not only did she share the slices out to those who were hungry, she had the nerve to ask the room filled with millionaires to chip in on the bill, and joked that there was no pressure, but that show was being broadcasted live to a huge audience who would judge them for not giving money! A commercial or two after that request, she came back to collect, borrowing Pharrell’s infamous brown ‘Canadian Mounty’ hat to gather the cash – Gotta love Ellen!
