Stars Pose for Best Selfie Ever, Break Twitter


One of the best impromptu moments of Sunday's Academy Awards telecast was the moment when host Ellen DeGeneres gathered a group of top Oscar nominees for a star-studded selfie with the goal of breaking the record retweets on Twitter.

The photo -- captured by Bradley Cooper -- featured some of Hollywood's biggest stars including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen, Meryl Streep, Lupita Nyong'o, Julia Roberts and Kevin Spacey.

No word yet on whether the Oscars selfie broke the Twitter record for retweets, but it did apparently manage to take down the social media site intermittently after it was snapped during the show.
