Apparently, the TV can still tell the Internet what to do. This year’s Oscars will be remembered for the Selfie that nearly knocked Twitter out for the night. The Selfie that Ellen orchestrated quickly set a retweet record and is now pushing the three million mark. (I tried to stop Hollywood from setting the new record, but I fell short by about 2,839,228 tweets — and counting). The success of this celeb-selfie proves that stars are just as needy and desperate as we are, they’re just better at it.

+ It’s the Oscars, so here are the red carpet arrivals.
