Celeb Selfies Take Over The 2014 Oscars
Gone are the days when an Academy Award held Hollywood's highest honor. Last night, the 2014 Oscars proved that there is something far more powerful and even more desirable, than winning an Oscar. This small and seemingly simple thing, is so extraordinary, that despite the attempts of many, only one has ever achieved it.
Obviously, we're talking about the coveted title of 'Best Selfie Ever Taken By Anyone, Anywhere." By now, the entire world has seen the epic, twitter-crashing, record-breaking selfie that Oscar host, Ellen DeGeneres, snapped
from inside the Dolby Theatre during the 86th Annual Academy Awards. The picture features the smiling celebrity faces of Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, and Lupita Nyong'O, to name a few. More impressive is that the photo itself was retweeted over 2 million times before the night had even ended. It caused Twitter to temporarily shut down for more than twenty minutes and has added over half a million followers for Ellen's Twitter account!
Although the quest for the perfect selfie is not new amongst Hollywood's hottest celebs, it was at an all time high before, during, and after last night's award show. Check out the gallery to see the best celeb selfies from the 2014 Oscars!
