    Ellen DeGeneres took the most epic selfie of all time on Sunday night, and since then, the famous snapshot has served as a creative muse for a couple of amazing recreations.

    The Twitpic, which was retweeted over three million times (!), got "The Simpsons" and Lego treatment!

    Jared Leto, who was cut-off in the original picture (how rude!), tweeted the hilarious photo of the stars animated as characters from the iconic series and wrote, "I've officially joined @TheSimpsons! #oscars."

    The animated version of the picture included all of the original celebs--Ellen, Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kevin Spacey, Lupita Nyong'o and Lupita's brother--with one addition.

    Homer Simpson joined the shot, but didn't get the warm welcome like everyone else. The funny picture shows Cooper trying to kick Homer out of the shot. Doh!

    The star-studded selfie also got not one, but two Lego recreations. One came from LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester which used the Lego characters to pose as the A-listers. Meanwhile, the second Lego creation was the selfie built with actual Legos! Seriously, the time and creativity put into it is amazing!

     

    Ellen's original picture was so viral, it ended up crashing Twitter. "I thought it would crash," DeGeneres told E!'s Marc Malkin at the Governors Ball. "But I didn't know everyone would do it." The comedienne continued, "What's funny is that Lupita's brother is the most prominent. And then Jared came running over to be in it. And Angie got it in. I didn't expect all that."
