She told the one billion Academy Award viewers worldwide she wanted to make history by taking the most retweeted selfie of all time .

But nobody could have expected what Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres had planned.

The comedian called upon Hollywood's elite to join her in the unbelievable picture as she first sided up to the legendary Meryl Streep.

Eventually the selfie taken by Bradley Cooper included Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jared Leto, Meryl, Ellen, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum and Lupita Nyung'o.

Immediately the social network website crashed after struggling to cope with the staggering spike in traffic.

Within half an hour of being posted the post was shared more than HALF A MILLION times.

And just 40 minutes later it smashed the current record set by President Obama with his iconic 'four more years' tweet.

After exactly one hour of publishing the selfie was retweeted 1,248,051 times. Incredible.

But the winner of the night was Lupita's brother Junior who photobombed the most amazing selfie of all time.
