    See below for the Oscar selfie that was taken during the telecast in case you haven’t seen it before. Turns out it was real, surprised me. But I thought it was awesome, not sure if everyone else thought so though.

    If Lupita’s brother wasn’t in it and Angelina was front and center behind Cooper, it would be an A+ but as far as selfies go, it was a good picture.

    I find the desire of some celebrities to be seen as cool and hip so cringe-inducing.  Jared Leto ran halfway across the theater to get in it? huh?  I’m sure somewhere Martin Scorsese was rolling his eyes at this ridiculousness.  Did Twitter really need a plug on the Oscars?  And what idiots would even need to retweet the photo?  What does that do?  I’m pretty young, but I didn’t see the appeal at all.

    People don’t realize Ellen played to her celebrity friends in the first few rows.  She didn’t play to the entire room.  Fail

    I think that as a joke or as a gimmick it was pretty dumb and very Ellen-like. Her usual silly, safe and Ellen-y self. But just like the pizza thing, it worked because she has the power to make it work, everybody loves her and everybody loves (needs/has) to suck up to her. 

    For me it worked because the stars went with it in a very fun way, like I said on another thread, I never expected to see Angelina jumping from her seat to join a selfie at the Academy Awards…or ever, unless it’s one of her kids taking it, I don’t know. It was an atittude I didn’t expect from her. Meryl, Julia were already there, Channing was asked to do it, I think Kevin Spacey can be that loose, Brad too, and I find the fact that the brother got in one of the biggest and most amazing photobombs of all time, so I have no issue with him.

    I don’t know if anybody has seen the photo from behind that’s been going around, but Liza actually got in the picture too but was too short to be seen.

    It seemed dumb at the time, but I need to give her credit for actually getting the most Retweets.

    I loved it because it’s nice to see everyone smile and be happy instead of being stiff. And for everyone complaining about Lupita’s brother…….. Jolie doesn’t have to be the center of everything all the time!

    Lupita’s brother is what makes it so wonderful. His complete innocence and naivity is heartwarming. I love the fact that he’s blocking Angelina (And I adore Angelina!!!).

    Everything about this picture is AMAZING!!! It’s just a pity that Liza couldn’t get her head in the frame. That really would have been the cherry on top.

    The selfie photo was the highlight gag of the entire telecast this year. It was both awesome and iconic. Go Ellen!

    Spacey made it awesome, also, Leto trying desperately to fit in the frame was both sad and hillarious if that exists lol.

    I think everybody trying to get in a selfie just made it awesome. I think Ellen bring out that quality. It’s just like they are so comfortable so they wanna join in. I mean, it’s just like a grp of frens asking hey join in the shot. I will definitely try to squeeze in with the rest of my friends to join that selfie shot. So it was great

    Selfies are inherently studid.
    This is as cool as they get, especially factoring in Leto, Liza, and Lupita’s brother.
