Ellen DeGeneres set out to a twitter record last night, right dab in the middle of her Oscar (winning) hosting performance. Taking advantage of her hosting duties, Ellen asked the audience of Hollywood’s most powerful players to help her break the record for the most retweeted picture of all time, by getting the A-list celebs to take a selfie with her!
In what was definitely a highlight of the night, stars such as Meryl Streep, Jared Leto, Lupita Nyongo’o, Bradley Cooper and more joined Ellen in taking the most epic of selfies. It was an instant hit, and the resulting picture even managed to slow twitter down.
Over 2.5 million RT’s and counting! Needless to say, she succeeded!
