Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Yes, yes, we’ve all had too much of her already, but we don’t make up the GIFs; we just report them. And America gets the Morning GIFs it deserves.

There is no question about the GIF of the moment: Angelina Jolie at the Oscars, striking a pose familiar to anyone whose ever cruised the seamier streets of the City of Angels. Well, the girl has a family to support somehow.

The GIF didn’t make it onto Tumblr in the crucial first hours after the Oscars, and with a late start is lagging behind, with only 150 notes. But this pose obviously has legs to go the distance.
