Time magazine have begun their round-ups for the year by unveiling their Top 10 Photos for 2014. This year they named Ellen Degeneres’ selfie at the Academy Awards the top photo of the year.

In a modern world of little word, selfies have taken over social media platforms like we could have never imagined. Today thousands of people can be spotted everywhere taking selfies, landing the word a spot in the dictionary last year.

DeGeneres took selfies to a whole new level this year at the Academy Awards in March when what started out as a joke is now the most retweeted image of all time, currently standing at just over 3 million retweets.

The selfie included Hollywood superstars Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Degeneres, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong'o and her brother and Angelina Jolie.
