We present an intuitive approach for describing the angular distributions of leptons produced in the Drell-Yan process and Z-boson production in hadron-hadron collisions. We show that this approach can describe the pronounced transverse-momentum dependence of the λand v parameters, observed at the γ∗/Z production at Tevatron and LHC, very well. The violation of the Lam-Tung relation is attributed to the mis-Alignment of the hadronic plane and the quark plane in this approach, and can be well described in this approach.
