Billy’s schtick and Jolie’s pin

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Billy Crys­tal’s old-school turn as Os­car host re­ceived mixed re­views, but the viewing fig­ures were up slightly.

There has, how­ever, been much on­line ker­fuf­fle about cer­tain ref­er­ences to race in Crys­tal’s rou­tines. He donned black­face to im­i­tate Sammy Davis Jr in the open­ing mon­tage and made ref­er­ence to hug­ging black women af­ter viewing The Help. Most of the chat­ter has, how­ever, been to do with Angelina Jolie’s right leg.

She in­clined it at a cer­tain provoca­tive an­gle, you see. We’ve never seen the like.

Angelina: my right leg
