Breaking the internet: a 2014 phenomenon.
1. The Ellen DeGeneres Oscars selfie
It seemed like an innocent photo op: Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres casually suggested grabbing a selfie with a bunch of audience members at the ceremony in the hopes that it'd cause a Twitter conniption. She was right. The snapshot with Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey. Lupita Nyong'o (and her brother Peter), Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and photographer Bradley Cooper actually shut down Twitter for a short spell during the telecast. I think the winning grin here belongs to Julia, who looks rightly electrified.
