Angelina Jolie's leg at the Oscars

Stealing the spotlight from her partner, best actor nominee Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie became a trending topic on the Web as she daringly exposed her right leg through a slit of her black Versace gown. During the Oscar telecast, screenwriters for the "The Descendants" imitated Jolie's pose, gaining laughs from the audience. Twitter account @Angiesrightleg instantly spurred thousands of followers and her leg appeared photoshopped on various images, from the Statue of Liberty to the moon landing.
