Ellen De Generes’ candid anchoring, involving the stars to participate in the fun charade was the highlight of the award ceremony. The best part was when she ordered boxes of Pizzas for the stars and Brad Pitt wanted two helpings of that. The twitter pic of the selfie taken by Ellen with the stars went viral to more than 1 million hits in two hours, with the most re tweeted number, creating history of sorts!
