Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres set Twitter ablaze -- and even sparked problems for users -- on Sunday when the "selfie" photograph she took with Hollywood stars at the Academy Awards went viral.
DeGeneres, who joked with A-listers throughout the show, corralled a crowd of stars including Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence and posed for a photo that almost instantly circled the globe.
"You get in here, too, Julia. Lean in," she said to Julia Roberts.
The resulting photograph earned nearly a million retweets in minutes in 40 minutes.
