COMEDIENNE Ellen DeGeneres broke Twitter record when she posted the "best photo ever" taken during the 86th Academy Awards on Monday (Manila time).

Held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, the television and Oscar host gathered Hollywood A-listers for a mega selfie. Among those who got up for the snap are Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and seasoned actress Meryl Streep.

"American Hustle" star and Best Supporting Actor nominee Bradley took the said selfie photo.


Later on, DeGeneres posted it on the micro-blogging site with the caption: "If only Bradley's arm was long. Best photo ever."

When the Oscars concluded, the picture garnered 1.7 million retweets and more than 720,000 Twitter users clicked it as a favorite.

The "best photo ever" and other snaps posted by DeGeneres on her Twitter account were taken using a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Smartphone, one of the sponsors of the event.

Aside from the selfie stunt, the comedienne also surprised the Oscar attendees when she ordered three boxes of pizza from Big Mamas and Papas pizza place in Burbank, California.

"12 Years A Slave" producer Brad Pitt and Best Supporting Actor winner Jared Leto are among the big Hollywood names who reached for a slice. (Sunnex)
