PHOTO: Liza Minnelli struggles to join Ellen’s epic all-star selfie during the Oscars
One of the priceless moments of last night’s Oscars was when Ellen took a selfie with celebrities sitting in the audience.
Lupita Nyong’o, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Spacey and Jared Leto all posed for an all-star selfie during the live broadcast.
On Twitter, that photo was retweeted more than 2.5 million times and caused the social media website to crash for about 20 minutes.
Liza Minnelli, dressed in all blue and standing no taller than 5’4″, attempted to be a part of the epic picture, but she was in the back and could not be seen. A Twitter user snapped a picture of the priceless moment from above showing Minnelli struggling to be in the shot. Of course the Internet loved this and the received its own special hashtag, #PoorLiza. Don’t worry, Ms. Minnelli, your presence made the moment special.
The making of a very special moment
