Oscar night in America

Ellen’s Oscar selfie, with the caption “ If only Bradley's arm was longer. Best photo ever. #oscars,” is now the most retweeted of all time. At some point during last night’s show, we read on Twitter that if this ended up beating Obama’s “Four more years” re-election photo, we (society at large, perhaps?) were all doomed. We say, of course it did. That photo had two famous people in it, Ellen’s has 12 famous people. It’s just math!

Thankfully for us, Chrissy Teigen also snapped a photo of that selfie “From the back!”

You’ll notice from the back of the picture that Liza just couldn’t get in the shot. Harry Clayton-Wright shared the photo with: “POOR LIZA. It's just not her night.” TODAY show added: “Liza Minnelli just missed being in @theellenshow's celebrity selfie!”

Thanks to Leah Pickett, we have a photo of new Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey at prom. She wrote, “My aunt's high school prom date just won an Oscar. Congrats, Matthew McConaughey! #oscars”

Oh and there’s a hilarious correction from the Guardian, who originally wrote that Bradley Manning had taken Ellen’s famous selfie. Maddy Potts tweeted: “Correction: Peak Guardian.”
