Top Social Media Moments From Last Night’s OSCARS
Lupita, Lupita, Lupita! The 86th annual Academy Awards was a big night for the rising star! Ellen ordered a lot of pizza and then set a Twitter record with her celebrity-packed selfie. For every award that Gravity didn’t win, 12 Years a Slave did. Here are my favorite social media moments from the 86th annual Academy Awards.
1. Lupita Nyong’o – Most GOOGLED dress of last night, illustrations & inspiration sweep the net.
2. Ellen’s Samsung Selfie most shared tweet of all time (surpassing President Obama’s “Four More Years” tweet)
3. Samsung backstage debacle. Ellen exposed for using iPhone for backstage photos during OSCARS.
4. Lupita Nyong’o dances with Pharrell Williams during his performance of “Happy” at the Oscars
5. Jared Leto takes social media sharing viral – going where no reporter has gone before… backstage…
Reporters aren’t allowed to take photos backstage at the Academy Awards, if you didn’t know. Because, you know, it’s the Oscars, and the Academy doesn’t care for reporter selfies. But, Jared Leto doesn’t care. He encouraged reporters to take photos and he himself took his fair share of selfies, photobombs and more during the show. Plus Jared Leto was the first winner of the evening to mention Venezuela in his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Kudos to Jared!
