"Mandy Patinkin, holla," Claire Danes said as she accepted her award for Best Actress in a Drama at Sunday night's Emmy Awards.
Danes' unusual shout-out to her "Homeland" co-star Mandy Patinkin (aka Inigo Montoya) became such a hit on social media that the venerable pop cultural anthropologists over at Gawker have even deemed it "the new Angelina Jolie's leg."
The Twittersphere unleashed a barrage of responses to Danes' remark, with some calling out for the inevitable "Mandy Patinkin, holla" meme.

Big night for Homeland: Claire Danes wins, too. "Mandy Patinkin, hollla" is the best thank-you ever.— Vulture (@vulture) September 24, 2012
I suspect a lot of people 'holla' at Mandy Patinkin. And often.— Mark Campbell (@MrWordsWorth) September 24, 2012
My formal statement on all matters in the future is going to be "Mandy Patinkin, Holla!"— Matt Marcotte (@MattMarcotte) September 24, 2012
Amazon's MP3 Twitter feed holla'd at Mandy Patinkin with a link to Patinkin's musical pursuits for sale on their site:
Some users, however, couldn't help but notice that Danes' guttural pronunciation of the word "holla," made it sound a lot like the braided bread eaten on Jewish holidays.

When Claire Danes said "Holla" about Mandy Patinkin last night, I honestly thought it was a Jewish joke for a second... #puns— Elizabeth Lefebvre (@ElizLefebvre) September 24, 2012
