Last night’s Oscars might be remembered more for a selfie than any speeches or surprise wins. Host Ellen DeGeneres’s expertly composed celebrity selfie pyramid received more retweets than President Obama’s “Four more years” tweet. These are the times we’re living in.

You might notice Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o and Kevin Spacey both photobombed the shot, which set the theme for the night. Celebs just couldn’t stop p-bombin’ other celebs. In Ireland Baldwin’s photo, the tables were turned, and Spacey was photobombed by Jared Leto:

Either before or after Jennifer Lawrence fell on the red carpet, she decided to photobomb these people. Or maybe this is just how she poses for photos:

Benedict Cumberbatch might have had the best photobomb record of the night. He swooped in on another DeGeneres selfie, and changed the photobomb game with a patented Cumberbomb.

And then there was this guy photobombing Ellen and Liza:

Aaaand back to Jared Leto:

But the prize should go to Lupita Nyong’o for this gem, snapped after the ceremony:
