The 86th Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, was not as exciting as everyone expected it to be. There were a couple of dull moments and it seems like the show avoided taking any risks. Host Ellen DeGeneres however did open up the show with a couple of jokes which were generally safe. What’s probably the most interesting side show that happened during the event is the group selfie shot taken with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 by Bradley Cooper DeGeneres, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Spacey, Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto.
We’re sure many have seen and heard by now that Ellen Degeneres’ Oscar selfie tweet has gone viral. We’re also sure that many have realized that the photo taken was done using a Samsung smartphone, and unsurprisingly so given that Samsung helped to sponsor the event. While the photo is viral and unsurprisingly so given the number of celebrities in the photo, that and how popular selfies are these days, it wasn’t exactly a photo of the highest quality. In fact Nokia thought to make fun of Samsung, essentially calling the photo taken blur. Well it looks like Nokia is not alone in this as LG has decided to chime in as well with a tweet of their own. According to LG Jordan’s tweet, it reads, “If only Ellen had a G2 she would’ve taken this selfie her self”. What does this mean? Well one of the features of the LG G2 is how on the back of the phone below the camera lens, is a volume rocker which when used with the camera, allows the shutter to be fired by pressing the “volume down” key.
