Ellen DeGeneres Smashes Retweet Record With Oscars Super Selfie


The Oscars took place last night, and while the movies and people in them were the stars of the show, Ellen DeGeneres gave them a run for their money.

With her great sense of humor, Ellen interacted with celebs from ordering and passing around pizza to taking a super selfie that briefly broke Twitter.

The tweet has generated over 2.5 million retweets, surpassing the previous retweet record of nearly 800,000 for Barack Obama’s “four more years.”

Twitter shared highlights from the Oscars, and here were the most popular moments:

  • Ellen DeGeneres rounds up celebs for super selfie – 254,644 tweets per minute
  • Ellen delivers pizza to hungry celebs – 158,159 tweets per minute
  • Gravity wins its sixth Oscar (film editing) – 135,330 tweets per minute

Here were the most tweeted about stars:

  • Jennifer Lawrence
  • Brad Pitt
  • Alfonso Cuarón
  • Cate Blanchett
  • Sandra Bullock

Gravity was the most talked about film during the Oscars, followed by Frozen, 12 Years a Slave, Dallas Buyers Club and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Leonardo DiCaprio lost out to Matthew McConaughey in the best actor category, but there’s always next year, right?
