Ellen Takes the Ultimate Star-Packed Oscar Selfie

First Ellen DeGeneres tweeted this amazingly blurry selfie from the Oscar stage (#blessed). Then, she upped the ante by getting Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and more of the biggest stars on earth together for this truly incredible photo. She let Streep press the send button to Twitter, who exclaimed, “I’ve never tweeted before!”

DeGeneres said she wanted to break the record for most retweeted photo ever. For reference, the previous record-holder is President Barack Obama’s victory tweet from 2012 with 500,000+ retweets. Will this one beat it?
