If there's one thing Hollywood loves, it's a sequel — which is why it's no surprise that after Ellen DeGeneres's record-breaking Oscar selfie, copycat star-studded snaps have been popping up all over. Enter Joan Collins, her smartphone, and an army of British celebs.
During the red carpet arrivals for the Prince's Trust and Samsung Celebrate Success Awards, the "Dynasty" diva corralled Ben Kingsley, Jeremy Irons, Dominic West, Luke Evans, and a slew of other Brits for a group selfie. The 80-year-old icon followed Bradley Cooper's lead and did the honors of snapping the shot, which has been retweeted 378 times so far (although that pales in comparison to DeGeneres's, which was retweeted over 3 million times and temporarily broke Twitter).

It's probably worth mentioning that Prince Charles was there but declined to be in the pic. If he had posed, maybe they could have temporarily taken down Twitter too. Still, it was a valiant attempt.
But Joan is hardly the only famous face to jump on the celebrity-packed selfie bandwagon. And, as you would expect, Ellen is taking the selfie wave in stride.
"So, a lot of people have been taking their version of my Oscar selfie," Ellen explained on her show on Tuesday. "Kevin Spacey was on Jimmy Kimmel’s show right after the Oscars and he tried to break Twitter. They got over 20,000 retweets. Hashtag 'nice try.'"
"This was posted by Matt Groening from The Simpsons. This was very cool. Somehow he replaced me with Anderson Cooper. I don't know why."

"Here's a Lego version. It's really flattering," Ellen mused.
And while she didn't mention this one, you have to love a zombie-Oscar selfie.

Last but not least, "Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus posted what we have deemed the most creative spinoff of them all.

In one word: genius.
