Oh my God, it just happened. I can't believe it. Ellen DeGeneres just took the ultimate Oscars group selfie. And we watched her do it on live television! Has this ever happened on live TV? I don't know, because when the Oscars start I forget everything about TV and can only remember movies. But I'm kind of feeling like I'm in a meta media mobius strip here, writing about Ellen tweeting a selfie on the Oscars. If you haven't seen that yet, here it is. And if you saw it & retweeted it, congratulations! You made history. Ellen's selfie became the most retweeted tweet ever and broke Twitter.
Let's talk about all the people in this photo. Your BFF J-trippin'-Law, Bradley-short-arms-Cooper, Lupita Nyono'o and her brother, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie (her face is covered by her hand), Jared Leto's eye, and Julia Roberts. (Also Kevin Spacey and Channing Tatum!) Then let's talk about the legal implications of Ellen tweeting photos of these people without getting them to sign a release first. Just kidding! It's Ellen, and everyone is happy to do Ellen a favor.
After that, Ellen ordered pizza and every lived happily ever after. But did you notice? I don't think Kerri Washington got her slice. Girlfriend is PREGNANT! Geez.

Anyway, you'll never get these people all together for a photo ever again -- oh, except in every Vanity Fair party photo and those editorial spreads they do. But good luck including Lupita's brother in those photos! Still, I thought it was super cool and loved that moment -- SO DeGeneres, don't you think? By the way, if you're not following Lupita Nyong'o on Instagram, stop what you are doing and follow her now. She is the bomb, and now an Academy-award-winning actress!
