Angelina Jolie is normally show-stopping but this year her leg is getting all of the attention as an Internet meme sensation after the 2012 Oscars.

Mrs. Brad Pitt became the center of attention when she made many awkward poses showing off her right leg, not once, not twice, but countless times on the red carpet and during the ceremony. Jolie posed with her right leg protruding from the thigh-high slit of her black velvet Alelier Versace gown.

Jolie's bare leg proved to be an Internet sensation, with countless memes and even a Twitter handle, @AngiesRightLeg, which is nearing 15,000 followers and full of funny tweets like, You have to admit I'm one hell of a leg. Even a Tumblr account entitled Angelina Jolie'ing has emerged where users upload photos of themselves showing off their gam.

Here is a compilation of the best photos of Angelina Jolie's leg out there.
