Kate Winslet stopped by Ellen this week.

During her appearance, the Oscar winner discussed the Los Angeles earthquake that hit the area yesterday morning, saying it was her first ever natural disaster, but that she barely had time to notice it.

Because she was pumping breast milk for her 14-week old baby, Bear Blaze.

Yes, her son's name is Bear Blaze.

Where did she come up with that unique moniker? A house fire and a couple little kids were involved. We'll let Winslet explain in the following interview:

Is Bear Blaze the most ridiculous baby name out there?

Someone should have flashed a boob.

So says Jennifer Lawrence to Ellen DeGeneres in the following video, which the talk show host has released online and which takes viewers behind the scenes of the 2014 Academy Awards.

We see Ellen preparing for her hosting gig in the footage, along with her telling J. Law and Kerry Washington about how the Samsung-sponsored Oscars selfie broke Twitter.

It would have broken the entire Internet if someone showed real skin, Lawrence jokes. Alas...

Watch to see DeGeneres receive props from a number of celebrities back stage, tell Will Smith that he's gonna finish hosting for her and then toast to her tremendous staff.

Samsung spent an estimated $20 million on TV ads to run during the 2014 Academy Awards, but Ellen DeGeneres gave them the best product placement ever.

That's right, Ellen DeGeneres' Oscar selfie was not spontaneous.

Best Selfie Ever

Viewers may have noticed Ellen toying with a white Samsung phone during the broadcast, even before she handed a Galaxy Note 3 to Bradley Cooper.

The actor famously took a "selfie" photo of himself and other stars including Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Lawrence with the host.

While the stunt felt spontaneous, and became the most re-Tweeted photo of all time by a huge margin, it wasn't entirely unplanned on Ellen's part.

Samsung and media buying firm Starcom MediaVest negotiated to have its Galaxy smartphone integrated into the telecast, according to insiders.

Ellen then added the following photo as she sat in her talk show dressing room:

Ellen DeGeneres was back as host of the 2014 Academy Awards, seven years after she first did the honors, and left many viewers hoping for a 2015 encore.

DeGeneres didn't appear in any sort of pre-produced skit to kick off her monologue. Instead, simply just brought the funny, starting with her very first line.

"For those of you watching around the world, it has been a tough couple of days for us here. It has been raining. We're fine. Thank you for your prayers."

DeGeneres couldn't resist some quality digs at Hollywood, calling out Liza Minelli, telling the legendary performer that she made for a convincing drag queen.

"Good job, sir," the host quipped.

Ellen gave a shout-out to Jennifer Lawrence falling, telling the Best Supporting Actress nominee, "If you win tonight, I think we should bring you the Oscar.

Ellen DeGeneres made history last night at the Oscars ... with this selfie, which was retweeted more than any other photo in the history of Twitter, BY FAR.

Taking a look at it below, you can sort of see why:

Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie

Ellen's Oscar selfie quickly eclipsed Barack Obama’s historic "four more years" re-election tweet en route to nearly three times as many retweets (2,089,000).

The President's photo of himself embracing wife Michelle garnered just 780,000 after the 2012 presidential election results were made official. So weak.

Of course, Twitter use has been growing since then; the network is 30 percent bigger than during Obama’s epic hug. Also, he only won 51 percent of the vote!

Celebrity love-fests, on the flip side, appeal to Republicans and Democrats alike. Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey and Bradley Cooper are in the pic!

There's also America's Sweetheart. If Jennifer Lawrence falling at the Oscars goes viral, so will Jennifer Lawrence looking adorable next to a beaming Ellen.

She deserves a special place among the 2014 Academy Award winners, for sure. Speaking of which ... the GIFs below could probably get 1 million too ...

On the same day new talk show rival Seth Meyers debuted as host of Late Night, Jimmy Kimmel made some headlines of his own.

The father of two young adults from a previous relationship, Kimmel said "I decided to have the first one with my wife. We got married in July and, you know, it's interesting. It's disgusting the way babies are made."

Meaning what, exactly?

Ellen DeGeneres produces viral videos for a living, or so it seems. The talk show host spends every waking hour doing whatever it takes to make her fans smile.

With great success, she can indisputably say.

Two involve celebrities. Two involve kids. Three involve animals. Some involve a combination thereof. All are worth a second (or third) look below!

Someday, the following list will not be necessary.

Someday, celebrities will not need to make any sort of official announcement regarding their sexuality because, quite simply, no one will care and society will be fully accepting of all orientations.

But that day hasn't arrived yet, for reasons explained so eloquently by Ellen Page when she came out as a lesbian on Friday:

Perhaps these stars can make a difference. Maybe they can positively influence others struggling with their sexual identity, using their public platform to push for tolerance.

So, with all that in mind, we join many in Hollywood in saluting Page and other famous folks who are very out and awfully proud:
