I’m not one for #selfies but this has to be one of the best ever taken… LIVE at the Academy Awards which crashed Twitter with over 3 million record-breaking retweets.
Bradley Cooper (Oscar Nominee) takes the photo with host Ellen DeGeneres’ Samsung phone (phenomenal product placement) which includes:
• Meryl Streep (Oscar Winner) – who was so excited since “she’s never tweeted before” and suggested to include Julia Roberts
• Julia Roberts (Oscar Winner)
• Jennifer Lawrence (Oscar Winner)
• Jared Leto (Oscar Winner) – who ran from across the room to take part
• Lupita Nyong’o (Oscar Winner) and her brother Peter Nyong’o
• Angelina Jolie (Oscar Winner)
• Brad Pitt (Oscar Winner – Producer)
• Kevin Spacey (Oscar Winner)
• Channing Tatum (Magic Mike)
One of my favorite moments of the night was the ultra cool Pharrell Williams wearing another Vivienne Westwood hat performing his song, “Happy” from Despicable Me 2. How can you not smile with Lupita Nyong’o, Meryl Streep and Amy Adams sharing the moment with him? I didn’t realize Kate Hudson was up on stage towards the end dancing with Jamie Foxx.
Here are some awkward moments from the glamorous evening including how to “Travoltify Your Name“. Has John Travolta apologized to Idina Menzel yet for mispronouncing her name so poorly it was unrecognizable? #PRnightmare for him and #PRwin for her.
