Highlight of the awards show was the epic group selfie which was shared by Ellen on her Twitter account.  The tweet, which the Oscar host sent out during the broadcast with the help of stars like Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’o and Brad Pitt, received 921,000 retweets in less than 40 minutes.  It went on later to get more than a million retweets.  It is now the most retweeted tweet of all time with 1.70 million retweets and still counting.

On the other hand, fans of Leo DiCaprio are frustrated because he did not win any Oscar Award since the birth of his career in film and production.
