If not for the blinding flash of Angelina Jolie’s sinewy thigh, her heavy black Atelier Versace dress would have looked like nothing so much as an oversized velvet (who knows?) garbage bag. So believe us when we say: we get the pose. But we weren’t the only people laughing when she got up on stage to present the award for Best Adapted Screenplay and cocked her leg out like a pageant toddler in the final round of Miss Pixie Stix Louisiana.
Before The Descendants screenwriters Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, and Jim Rash began their acceptance speech for the award, the trio (led by Rash on stage left) took a perfectly timed shot at Jolie by mimicking her thigh-baring pose. Now if only the former Groundlings troupe-members had hosted the entire show.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
