In case you haven’t looked at the Internet during the past week, Sunday’s Academy Awards have pretty much taken over all social media.
Twitter was especially inundated with posts about the biggest night in Hollywood. For those looking to either keep updated or to annoyingly live tweet the ceremony, the Twittersphere was where the party was at if you weren’t attending the real deal.
While you might expect celebs to put their phones down for a few hours while they’re busy working the red carpet and winning awards, some of them found the time to post what is probably the most famous selfie to date, especially considering no one has talked about anything since.
You guys, I think the #oscars broke @Twitter.

We can thank Ellen for this.
Yep, @TheEllenShow just won the #Oscars. pic.twitter.com/dBqs5K80vP — E! News (@ENews) March 3, 2014
Even her page wouldn’t load for many users.
I can’t even load Ellen’s Twitter profile, good job Internet. #oscars — Matthew Harris (@mattryanharris) March 3, 2014
Apparently Twitter couldn’t handle the best selfie in history either.

There’s always that one person who isn’t happy with anything.
That huge Oscars selfie would’ve been so much better with only Meryl in it #Oscars

Do older generations “get it”?
Selfies are hilarious, grandma!! — Frontiers magazine (@FrontiersMag) March 3, 2014
Here’s another one; we guess you just can’t please everyone.
I’m so bored by the #Oscars that I actually took a little nap & just woke to find that they haven’t even done Best Supp Actress yet. #help — Monica Crowley (@MonicaCrowley) March 3, 2014
Well, it was set in the silent vacuum known as outer space.
Kubrick, from beyond the grave, shakes his head at a movie set in space winning any award related to sound. #avctv #Oscars

I bet this is the only country that gives awards for a better way to flip a car over. #Oscars

Oh, and then U2 performed or whatever.
My mother just texted me after U2’s performance and said “some people just don’t know when to retire.” Hahaha #Oscars
