Ellen DeGeneres crashes Twitter with all-star selfie during Oscars telecast

Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres crashed Twitter during the Academy Awards telecast on Sunday (2 March) with an all-star selfie for the ages.

While the Oscars were still underway, the photo had been retweeted more than 1.2 million times.

For the selfie, DeGeneres was quickly surrounded by two of the night’s winners Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto as well as nominees Bradley Cooper, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep along with Brad Pitt.

The photo was actually taken by Cooper after DeGeneres handed her camera phone to him.

‘If only Bradley’s arm was longer. Best photo ever,’ she tweeted later to her more than 26.4 million followers on Twitter.
