The Academy Awards always produces its share of controversy. From outfit choices to the Best Actress winner, last night’s ceremony was as full of head scratchers as usual. The evening started with Sacha Baron Cohen dumping Kim Jong-Il’s ashes on Ryan Seacrest’s head and even featured a a possible nipple slip, but perhaps the biggest topic of conversation today has been Angelina Jolie’s leg. The actress struck an incredible pose with the help of her black dress’ slit both before and during the ceremony, but shortly after her second time, she was mimicked by Descendents winner Jim Rash while he was on stage.
As the dean on Community, he’s no stranger to flamboyant behavior, but his impulsive maneuver reportedly rubbed many, including Jolie, the wrong way. He defended his actions to US Weekly, calling the pose a “loving tribute”. Whether it was or not, it still got a laugh, which may or may not have been at the expense of the actress.
I get why Jolie would be a little perturbed at the situation. She was obviously trying to look glamorous with the leg thing (mission accomplished) but got undercut a bit by Rash. According toThe Chicago Sun-Times, she asked “who was that guy?” upon exiting the stage but reportedly relaxed a bit when she was told he was a comedian. No one wants to be made a fool of, but on the other hand, it is a live show and she should be able to take a few giggles directed at her now and again.
So, all that begs the question: whose leg extension was better: Jolie’s or Rash’s? Check out the pictures in the album and then let us know your favorite by voting in the poll below…
