It's probably the most famous selfie EVAH with 3.2 million retweets, but now the terrible truth can be told about the Oscars' most star-spangled group shot.

A galaxy of A-listers posed for the now famous picture but one man was in danger of upstaging them all - Homer Simpson.

But as you can see, just as the camera phone clicked, he was rudely shoved aside by a lesser mortal by the name of Bradley Cooper.

Everyone's favourite yellow, four-fingered family exposed the full story in a tweet this morning: "@TheEllenShow Oscar Selfie: A wider view. #thesimpsons."

Homer himself tweeted: "The ugly true story of that Oscar selfie can finally be told! Let's break Twitter again. Look for Bart."

Indeed - in a nice "Where's Willy" detail, can you find Bart in the picture?
