275x250.jpg We learned one thing from the Academy Awards this year... that Angelina Jolie has got more social media clout in her right leg than we have in our whole bodies.

We know this because within a couple of hours of making an Oscars appearance from her black thigh-high slit gown it had it's own Twitter account and amassed 15,000 followers.

Presenting the award for Best Adapted Screenplay, the 36-year-old actress had struck the pose -- showing off her delightful limb -- for several seconds before speaking.

And while it received a bit of a mocking from the award-winning screenwriters for The Descendants, that wasn't the end of it and 'Angelina Jolie's right leg' soon became a tending topic on Twitter.


Sacha Baron Cohen successfully managed to become one of the most controversial guests at the Oscars… by tipping an urn he said contained Kim Jong-il's ashes over a US TV presenter.

Attending as General Aladeen -- the lead character from The Dictator -- Cohen was being interviewed by E! Channel host Ryan Seacrest about things such as who he was wearing.

But after telling viewers he had brought with him the ashes of Kim Jong-il (his dear friend and doubles tennis partner) to sprinkle him over the red carpet, he pretended to fall over.

And as he did this he emptied the urn's contents all over Seacrest's Burberry suit -- which much of the 'ahses' ending up on the red carpet and getting Cohen dragged away by security.


It's something we've all tried doing, saying words backwards -- but we bet your attempts at the art of 'gnikaeps sdrawkcab', was not a patch on Alyssa.


This video -- which has been seen by more than 1 million people online -- shows US teenager Alyssa showing off her unique skill of being able to quickly pronounce any word backwards.

Within seconds she's able to say the reverse of words like fireworks, savings, download and kaleidoscope.
