MUMBAI: Topping President Barack Obama’s iconic “four more years” tweet, Ellen’s star-studded selfie twitpic at the 86th Annual Academy Awards a.k.a. Oscars that included Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, Lupita Nyung’o, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kevin Spacy, Jared Leto, Julia Roberts, Channing Tatum and Ellen DeGeneres broke Twitter records as the most retweeted tweet with over 2 million retweets and counting. Also photobombing the twitpic was Lupita’s younger brother, Junior.

From Liza Minneli’s wardrobe malfunction to Jennifer Lawrence’s embarrassing fall, host Ellen DeGeneres wasted no time in poking fun at the stars in her opening monologue. "If you win tonight, I think we should bring you the Oscar," DeGeneres joked to 22-year-old Lawrence. Ellen also refused to be drawn into who dressed best before declaring that Jared Leto was "the prettiest".

Starting off the big wins was Jared Leto who won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his portrayal as a transvestite in Dallas Buyers Club, while Lupita Nyung’o took home her first Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 12 Years a Slave.

Later, Frozen was awarded the Best Animated Feature with producers Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee and Peter Del Vecho appearing utterly unsurprised. Gravity topped the Oscar winning list 7 wins including Best Visual Effects, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Original Score and Best Director Award for Alfanso Cuaron.

In addition to Best Supporting Actor and Best Hairstyle and Makeup, Dallas Buyers Club also took home the third Oscar with Matthew McConaughey winning the Best Actor Oscar. 12 Years a Slave won the big Best Picture Oscar and Best Adapted Screenplay.

For comic relief, host Ellen DeGeneres dressed herself as the White Witch to pay an homage to The Wizard of Oz which was continued with a delightful rendition of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” by P!NK. Other memorable music performances included Karen O and Ezra Koenig’s duet of “The Moon Song” from Her, with Pharell Williams performing the peppy number “Happy” from Despicable Me 2 and Idina Menzel serenaded the extremely popular “Let It Go” from Frozen, which won the Best Original Song Oscar.
