Some people are raising questions about the back story of Ellen DeGeneres' celebrity filled "selfie" from the Oscars on Sunday night. One of the biggest questions is her choice of camera, and whether big-stakes product placement had anything to do with the choice.
The "shot seen around the world'' was fired off with a Samsung camera...
...and it so happens that Samsung was a major commercial sponsor of the Academy Awards telecast. The company also gave phones to student presenters and encouraged them to tweet and post on Instagram with them.
Dozens of Samsung phones, tablets and TVs were used to make a digital photo display in the backstage green room.
