Have you ever tried to get a selfie with 10+ people? It’s hard! Really hard.

Accordingly, major props are due to Oscars hostess Ellen DeGeneres for managing to pull off a selfie with so much star wattage it’s almost blinding — there’s Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o (and her date, her brother Junior), Angelina Jolie, Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep and Jared Leto (or his eye, at least) — plus Ellen herself, of course.

Previously, Barack Obama’s election-night photo of him embracing Michelle, which has been retweeted over 778,000 times, was the most-retweeted tweet of all time; it took less than an hour for Ellen’s to beat his record and hit over 1.2 million retweets on this photo.

In her own words? This selfie is thoroughly #blessed.
