The most-talked-about limb at the Academy Awards on Sunday night? Definitely Angelina Jolie's right leg.

The actress presented the screenplay awards while wearing a black gown with a thigh-high slit and striking an exaggerated pose that drew attention to her shapely leg.

The pose was so memorable that when "Descendants" scribe Jim Rash later came up on stage to pick up his trophy for best adapted screenplay, he mimicked the actress, sticking out his own, not-so-sexy leg and tossing his head back.

"Honestly, as soon as I saw her pose like that, I was like, 'I'm going to do that,'" Rash told Entertainment Weekly.

Jolie's leg was quickly taken to Twitter, as a new account, @AngiesRightLeg, started up and quickly earned more than 6,500 followers. Tweets included "I'm a leg, get a load of me!" and "Don't forget about the leg!"

The account also linked to BuzzFeed's "Legbombing" page, where the site urged people to insert an image of the leg into famous and not-so-famous unrelated photographs, including the now-famous shot of a line of protesters being pepper-sprayed at the University of California-Davis.
