Ladies and gentlemen, we witnessed a phenomenon at the 2012 Oscars tonight: Angelina Jolie’s right leg. From her arrival on the red carpet to presenting onstage, she just could not stop hitching her hand squarely on her hip to pop out her svelte gam ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Posing with Brad Pitt? POP. Solo red carpet shots? POP. Reading from the teleprompter? POP. Sitting in her seat? POP. Nah, just kidding, that would look tawdry (but CONSISTENT!). Angie’s black Atelier Versace strapless, zigzag bodice with a hiiiiiiiigh-thigh slit was the perfect curtain to showcase her scene-stealing limb, and the structure of the bustier provided endless hand placement possibilities.

TWERK, girl. Angie’s leg photo-bombing caused such a riot that an @AngiesRightLeg Twitter account was created in her honor. Angelina’s only rival to the spotlight jockeying was Jennifer Lopez’s onscreen nip-slip, which also had a Twitter account made after the incident. Though “Angie’s” updates are decidedly one note: “I’m a leg!!” they’re a fantastic accompaniment to the hilario-stylings of @JLosNipple (“’In Memoriam’ of all nip slips”). Oof, now can you imagine being Angie’s left leg? Totally the Jan Brady of the Jolie limbs. Sadfaceknee.
