Ellen DeGeneres hosted the 86th Academy Awards and took an unforgettable selfie which included Julie Andrews, Bradley Cooper, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence and others. A lot went on at this years award ceremony including Miranda Kerr coming face to face with her ex Orlando Bloom, as they awkwardly kissed with Orlando walking off. Jared Leto photo bombed Anne Hathaway, not once, but six times!

Brad Pitt chewed on his slice of pizza as if he hadn’t been fed for days. Pharrell Williams broke the dress code by wearing a Tuxedo and shorts, while Jennifer Lawrence fell over…again.

Gravity grabbed the most wins with seven awards as 12 Years a Slave won a respectable three awards with Best Picture to their credit.
