The Oscar Selfie No One Is Talking About
Yes, we get it. The Oscars 2020 was a week ago and you’re probably tired of all this coverage. Well, I was too. And then I came across this selfie that no one seems to be talking about.
The OG Selfie
Now let me ‘throwback’ to 2014 when the first Oscar selfie came about and literally broke the internet. It was retweeted 1 Million times in the first few days only, becoming the most retweeted entertainment tweet of all time. It featured stars like, Bradley Cooper, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Jared Leto (barely), Meryl Streep, Angeline Jolie, Julia Roberts, Lupita Nyong’o and more!
However, this iconic selfie started a trend and soon enough everyone was taking their versions of “The Oscar Selfie”.

Charlize Theron Brings Back ‘The Oscar Selfie’
When the Oscars rolled around this time, we managed to get another iconic moment, all thanks to Charlize Theron.
Two days after the Academy Awards were held, Theron uploaded her new version of the legendary selfie which appeared to have been taken during the broadcast.
It features herself, Salma Hayek, Rami Malek, Tom Hanks, Regina King, Rita Wilson and more.
The Oscars 2020 was seemingly uneventful compared to the other years. And turns out, weren’t the most-watched broadcast in the show’s history, recording lowest ratings ever.
But nonetheless, it had some huge moments, including Parasite’s big win. And of course, Natalie Portman’s statement gown. Brad Pitt winning Best Supporting Actor and Joaquin Phoenix’s Best Actor speech. And now, thanks to Charlize Theron, we have another iconic moment to add to our list.
It’s always refreshing to see the movie fraternity come together and celebrate the industry’s biggest achievements of the year. It’s even better when we see our favorite stars who might play enemies on-screen, come together in such harmony and appreciate each other. No rivalry, no competition, just support for each other and good vibes.
Maybe that is why these selfies are so iconic to us. We just hope they never stop coming.
You can never have enough of Oscar Selfies. Can you?
