Mandy Patinkin - "Mandy Patinkin, Holla" Goes Viral After Claire Danes' Bizarre Emmy Acceptance Speech

Mandy Patinkin was the toast of the town last night (September 23rd) when he, alongside the rest of the Homeland cast won big at the Emmy Awards 2012. The Showtime program won four of the five categories it was nominated in, including Outstanding Drama Series. Patinkin didn't win any individual honours, but it was ensured that he more than any of the others was talked about on the internet last night after his co-star Clare Danes opted to give him his own unique shout out among the list of people she thanked upon winning the Outstanding Leading Actress in a Drama category.

The Associated Press reports that as Danes went through the names, she stopped specifically at Patinkin and called out "Mandy Patinkin, holla". Twitter erupted with delight at the unorthodox way of thanking her co-star, with several sights demanding that the saying became a new internet meme. Oh goody. Gawker wrote: "'Mandy Patinkin, holla' is the new Angelina Jolie's leg," whilst New York Magazine's Vulture account said: "'Mandy Patinkin, holla' is the best thank-you ever." NPR's twitter meanwhile said: "If the Internet doesn't remix 'Mandy Patinkin, holla' by tomorrow morning, it is a failure."

The other two awards that Homeland took home were for Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series, which went to Damian Lewis with the writing team taking the Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series.
