And the Oscar for best social media moment of the night goes to Ellen DeGeneres for breaking Twitter.
DeGeneres tweeted what some have dubbed the best selfie ever, and the tweet knocked the service offline for a few minutes before recovering.
In 30 minutes, the tweet got more than 700,000 retweets and nearly 200,000 favorites.
DeGeneres' tweet is now the most retweeted ever, easily surpassing President Barack Obama's four more years tweet posted after his second-term win in 2012. That tweet had 778,000 retweets.
By Monday morning, at the time of this posting, Ellen’s "Best photo ever" had more than 2.6 million retweets and was still growing. It also had more than 1.3 million favorites — and those figures aren’t even counting all of the mentions and Internet shares and memes that instantly followed.
