Will Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres’ selfie from the audience become the most re-Tweeted photo ever – just like she hoped for?

The shot includes Ellen, Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o and her brother, Angelina Jolie and Bradley Cooper – who snapped the shot.

Ellen also took pics with Liza Minnelli and Chiwetel Ejiofor from the audience.

Just moments after posting the shot, Twitter crawled to a halt – maybe Ellen got her wish! In just 15 minutes, Ellen’s selfie was reTwetted over 200,000 times.
