Here is a photo of the Ultimate Selfie.  The world’s most retweeted tweet?  On Twitter?  Make sure to Retweet the tweet to be part of history.

 

I typically watch the Oscar Red Carpet to watch what the stars wear, but the Belle of the ball were Moms!   Liza Minnelli and her siblings celebrated their mother, Judy Garland during the red carpet walk. Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael Fassbender and Jonah Hill brought their mothers to the Oscars.   Jared Leto, Alfonso Cuaron and  Kate Blanchett thanked their moms for the wins!

Jared Leto’s acceptance speech:

“In 1971, in Bossier City, Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child.  She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged her kids to be creative, to work hard and to do something special. That girl is my mother and she’s here tonight. And I just want to say, I love you, Mom. Thank you for teaching me to dream.”

Hooray for Moms everywhere that support their children’s dreams!
