Host Ellen DeGeneres broke records by taking a selfie featuring Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Lupita Nyong’, Kevin Spacey, Jared Leto and more A-listers, and was retweeted more than 2.4 million times,

DeGeneres wrote: ‘If only Bradley’s arm was longer. Best photo ever. #oscars

“We crashed and broke Twitter. We made history,” DeGeneres said during the show. “It’s fantastic. See what we did, Meryl?”

The hilarious tweet surpassed the previous record holder of most retweets, Barack Obama’s photo showing him hugging his wife Michelle Obama on his 2012 reelection, captioned “Four more years” which clocked 780,000 retweets.
