Remember That ‘Twitter-breaking’ Picture Ellen Had Taken at the Oscars? Guess Who Owns It?

*Not Ellen.

I don’t think there is a person alive that watched The Academy Awards and don’t think Ellen DeGeneres is one of the greatest hosts the show has ever had.

The second-time host of the arguably most watched awards show coming out of Hollywood, has such a natural way with comedy; so down-played you don’t even know you’re in the midst of a skit until the people start laughing…and then you realize the joke is on you!

Not only did she get the munchies in the midst of the show and decide to order pizza for everyone within range of getting a Styrofoam plate (did the pizza guy look a little embarrassed to you?), but you’ve got to remember when she decided she wanted to “break a Twitter record” and rallied a group of folks together for a selfie?

Well the proud owner of that photo is wearing a big grin right now.

Hello Mr. Bradley Cooper.

That’s right! You see the photo, according to our media partners at TMZ, actually belongs to the person taking the picture…Bradly (seated right there in the front bottom right) which would be kind of odd if the CAMERA actually belongs to Ellen. Duh!

Ok. Ok, so I’m getting off topic…my bad.

But say Ellen signed her rights over to the Academy when she signed on for the hosting gig. Don’t matter. The Academy wouldn’t even  have rights to the photo because Ellen can’t transfer what isn’t hers.

…and guess what TMZ says about Bradley Cooper’s rights; and what  “down the road” could happen if the photo ends up on Ellen’s TV show?

Oy Vey! Things could get interesting, to say the least.
