Ellen DeGeneres Takes a Selfie. Time Stops. Twitter Explodes. History Remembers.

First of all, how much does Ellen DeGeneres ROCK?! She's a badass funny chick who looks fabulous all the time, AND she makes it look so easy! Within minutes she confirmed our suspicions that she can predict the future (who knew 12 Years a Slave would win Best Picture? JK -- we all knew!). Oh, and she brought pizza. Can't beat that!

Oh. Except she DID.

Ellen DeGeneres took a brief moment to snap a quick ol' selfie of, ya know, a few close friends. Friends like Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Bradely Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, Meryl Streep and Jared Leto's eye. One of the funniest parts about this pic is how eager everyone was to step in -- because, we love it when actors break character (why else watch Saturday Night Live?). It's like a dog walking on its hind legs. Secondly, the picture was retweeted and posted so many times that it broke Twitter. And by "broke" we mean, slowed it down enough so that Twitter service was kaput for a few solid minutes after it was posted.

Thank you Ellen. We will surely tell our grandkids about the night the Academy Awards were just too much for Twitter.
