Here’s Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar Selfie That Everyone Won’t Shut Up About

I’m sure you’ve seen the above photo about 800 times by now. Ellen DeGeneres decided to take her hosting duties at last night’s ceremony to the next level by getting together some of the biggest names in Hollywood to take the ultimate selfie! We’ve got a little Jennifer Lawrence, some Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper holding the camera, Lupita Nyong’o and Angelina Jolie, Jared Leto struggling to fit in the frame, a little Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita’s brother, Peter… it’s classic.

There’s not really much to say about this, other than that I really like this and everyone is so handsome/beautiful and that the Oscars seem like a nightmare that I would never attend because getting dressed up to that level is like, my worst nightmare. The end.

Jennifer Lawrence Fell at the Oscars, Of Course

An awards show just isn’t an awards show unless Jennifer Lawrence trips and busts her ass, but last night’s Oscars were really special, particularly because Jennifer didn’t even make it in the door before she was on the ground. While walking the red carpet, I guess she tripped over her own two feet or whatever and down she went. Oh, Jennifer Lawrence. Never change!

So, This Is Leonardo DiCaprio’s Year for the Oscar, Right?

CNN is pretty psyched about the Oscars, so they’ve been doing a lot of promo for the upcoming ceremony, going behind the scenes into what makes the show come together and all that. Well, the other day they showed the plaques made for the award winners to be soldered onto their trophies, and the broadcaster held up one made up for Leonardo DiCaprio.

BUT HOW CAN THIS BE? Academy members haven’t even finished voting and the ceremony isn’t for another several weeks! Is this thing really pre-decided?! HAS LEO FINALLY WON AN OSCAR?

Well… maybe, but maybe not. Turns out, the explanation is that the Academy Awards organizers apparently have a plaque like this made for every single nominee, in the case that they do turn out to be the winner. I feel like that’s sorta silly (and perhaps outright bullshit) since it would take 24 hours at most for an express engraving job to be done for the winners once they DID know the results, but let’s go with it.

I do think this will be Leo’s year – I’ll be absolutely shocked if it isn’t. Do you think this is a spoiler, or is it really the case that everyone has a plaque like this made?
