Angelina Jolie's Right Leg Crashes The Webby Awards

The internet's version of the Oscars was visited by the most famous body part from this year's Oscars. BuzzFeed was invited to cover the Webby Awards, so I decided to dress up as Angelina Jolie and terrify a bunch of famous people.

Arriving at the Webbys, armed with beer and press pass. The award ceremony was held in the beautiful Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Well, I assume it's beautiful. I spent all night in the basement with the rest of the media.



The first person I approached for a photo was Juliette Lewis. It did not go well. When I told her I was supposed to be Angelina Jolie, she kind of flipped out and said she wanted nothing to do with me. Honestly don't know what that was all about.



The second person I tried to get a photo with was Bjork. Also did not go well. She just giggled at me in that ethereal Bjork kind of way and was quickly ushered out by her handler.



Holy crap! Richard Effing Dreyfus! The Hollywood legend was there to introduce a eulogy for Steve Jobs. He was super nice and suggested I use duct tape to rip out my chest hair.



Skip Bayless, the ESPN commentator who achieved viral celebrity status thanks to an autotune remix of his rant about Tim Tebow, was a perfect gentleman. Me: "Mr. Bayless, could I get a photo with you?" Skip Bayless: "I never turn down a photo with a lady."


Jason Sudeikis is the best. Not only is he the glue holding together Saturday Night Live, but he's a huge fan of KU basketball. We chatted about the Jayhawks for a few minutes. As an alum of the University of Kansas and a former resident of Lawrence, I swooned.



This handsome gentleman is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, better known as Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones. I had to be told all of this after the fact by people who actually have HBO.
