Ellen DeGeneres broke Twitter with her celeb-studded selfie from the Oscars. And the Internet responded with copycats. But none quite like this.
"Ellen has nothing on our @nlgja self," declared CNN anchor Don Lemon while posting a shot of some well known media faces — some gay, some straight.
You'll recognize Lemon in the front, next to fellow CNN-er Ashleigh Banfield, ABC's Amy Robach (who hosted the NLGJA Headlines & Headliners fundraiser), and Fox's Jamie Colby and Rick Reichmuth. Then in the back row, starting on the right you'll find CNN's Sally Kohn, CNN's Gerri Willis, MSNBC's Ronan Farrow, Fox's Shepard Smith, CNN producer Javi Morgado and NBC's Tiki Barber.
Here are a few photos from Lemon and others for the night, which reportedly raised $65,000 for NLGJA.

Of course I turned my selfie with @ShepNewsTeam into a watercolor. Wouldn't you?!?? pic.twitter.com/sQzsyzuwNc
