Degeneres’ Oscars ‘selfie’ breaks world record for most ‘retweets’
During the 2014 Oscars ceremony held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, the comical and loveable lesbian icon Ellen Degeneres stopped her in show commentary in attempt to break the world record for number of retweets on a Twitter photo. The photo originally to be taken with English national treasure Meryl Streep was soon ‘photo-bombed’ by a range of A-list celebrities who all wanted in on the photo from the likes of Brad and Angie to Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence. The photo now boasts way over 3 million retweets.

Not all celebrities were lucky enough to make the cut as poor Liza Minnelli found out!
The hilarious ‘selfie’ humanised our favourite celebrities and showed that we are not so different after all. Degeneres’ humour proved again how much we all love her. Good job Ellen! What did you think? Let us know in the comments below.
