Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar selfie was so awesome that it broke Twitter (no seriously, Twitter crashed after she posted it).

As of this afternoon it had been retweeted nearly 2.9 million times, making it the most retweeted tweet ever.

After the talk show host hopped into the audience at the Academy Awards Sunday night and said 'Let's take a selfie,' A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong'o, Bradley Cooper and more hopped up for the shot.

And so did Lupita's brother, Peter, who ended up creating one of the greatest photo bombs we have ever seen.

Check out the five reasons Peter Nyongo's photo bomb was amazing.

1. He is blocking Angelina.

2. He is closer to the camera than his sister Lupita...who won an Academy Award.

3. He is the only non-actor in this shot.

4. He jumped up really fast to make it in (hence, his placement).

5. His entire face and part of his body is visible in the shot...Jared Leto, not so much.
