James Franco Says He Invented The Oscar Selfie, NOT Ellen! (VIDEO)



Did comedienne Ellen DeGeneres steal the Oscar selfie? According to former Academy Awards show host James Franco, she sure did!

Franco recently spoke with The Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie, alongside his Of Mice and Men Broadway co-stars. During the chat he joked about being the one to first do a selfie at the Oscars. Franco stated:
I took some videos and selfies at my Oscars and I got criticized for it. Now she's getting a lot of attention for hers. I don't get it.

Maybe because Ellen was funny doing it, and you weren't James? Watch the interview below!

Today’s Natalie Morales to Run Boston Marathon in Honor of Bombing Victims



The Today Show co-host Natalie Morales will be running the Boston Marathon to honor its bombing victims and raise money for One Fund and Challenged Athletes Foundation. Morales wrote a post at Today.com sharing why running this year's marathon was especially important.

We all watched in horror last year as news of the bomb blasts broke, claiming three victims and shattering so many lives. In the tragedy and its aftermath we saw heroes who saved lives, and we saw the courage of those injured by the blasts as they showed us all what it really means to be Boston Strong. I am truly inspired by their stories of perseverance and strength.
