Oprah Winfrey was photobombed by another famous face as she took her very first selfie over the weekend at the 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards.

Winfrey, 60, attended the star-studded awards gala Saturday night and tried to snap a picture of herself in the audience. But Idris Elba, star of "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," popped up in the background.

Elba later jokingly tweeted about photobombing the media mogul.

Elba lost the award for Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture to "The Butler's" Forest Whitaker.

Winfrey was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her role in "The Butler" but ultimately lost to Lupita Nyong'o of "12 Years a Slave," who later gushed about Winfrey backstage.

"I think the world is a better place because Oprah Winfrey has lived and has done what she felt called to do. She is extraordinary," Nyong'o told reporters. "And so I couldn't pick one thing that Oprah has taught me. She’s taught me so much and she taught me by being herself."

Other big winners at the NAACP Awards included Beyonce, John Legend, Kevin Hart, and Kerry Washington.
