It’s hard to pinpoint the highlight of the 86th Annual Academy Awards telecast. It could have been the gripping 12 Years a Slave winning Best Picture. It could have been the breezy, charming acceptance speech by Best Actor winner Matthew McConaughey. It could have been the moment when host Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizza for the assembled stars to nosh on. Or, it could have been the epic selfie that included Hollywood stars such as Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence and a half dozen others.
That image has become the most retweeted post in the history of Twitter, and is emblematic of the fun, in-touch humor that the Academy is trying to promote. But, as thewire.com points out, the intellectual property rights to the image in question may be a bit fuzzy.
