Angelina Jolie’s leg steals the Oscars – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell No, she didn’t win an Oscar Sunday night. Instead, Angelina Jolie won THE ENTIRE Oscar telecast.

The big story Monday morning, in wake of a slate of largely predictable winners, is Jolie’s leg. You know, the one she sexily displayed while presenting on stage? It led to Oscar winner Jim Rash’s hysterical pose as he helped Alexander Payne accept the Best Adapted Screenplay awards for “The Descendants.” And then it took on a life of it’s own.

For starters, “Angeline Jolie’ing” is the new “Tebow-ing,” according to this clever meme.

And in case you wanted to follow Angie’s right leg, it also has its own Twitter feed. The feed has more than 10K followers. Man, people move fast.
