OS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. first lady Michelle Obama made a surprise and unprecedented appearance on Sunday's Oscars telecast when she presented the award for Best Picture, the first time a president or first lady has ever presented an Academy Award.
Appearing live on screen from the White House in Washington, almost 3,000 miles from the Oscars ceremony in Hollywood, Obama praised the work of the movie industry before announcing the Iran hostage drama "Argo" the Best Picture winner.
Wearing a silver evening dress, Obama said this year's nominated films had "made us laugh, made us weep and grip our armrests just a little bit tighter."

It would've been cool if Michelle Obama delivered Ben Affleck the Oscar via unmanned drone.
No surprise for me either. Hollywood and the Obamas share common ideologies and goals. Why wouldn’t they want to be seen together. They are the true 1% who subscribe to the “for thee but not for me” attitude common to all communists and dictators.
The aim is to influence behavior and promote popular ( and at the same time immoral and self-destructive) culture through the adulation of those “acting” it out on the stage or on film in this case. If you’ll forgive the now overused phrase they are indeed “putting lipstick on a pig.” All that glitters is not gold, and in this case it is rotten to the core.
And for the 40th straight year, I have missed this liberal butt kiss event. No worries.
Wonder how many wet trousers and spotted dresses there were since this phony crowd could not contain itself.
Is there ANYTHING on earth that the Obama’s think DOESN’T concern them?
The Worst Lady’s appearance was disgusting on many levels. First...shouldn’t she be in prison for something? Second...her “white person’s hair” wig is so unbecoming to this fat grifter. Third...the military “attendants” surrounding her looked as if they couldn’t get enough of her. This is our military????? Please...someone tell the nobama grifter family that they are to be unseen.
I really doubt that “Mooch” will run, really do.
Where have you heard about anyone expressing the
“inappropriateness” of Mooshie’s appearance at the Oscars.
Please provide some names-—I need to like some of these actors!
The real surprise was that they weren’t on stage as presenters. With the tax breaks that Hollywood gets they owe the politicians big time.
Worlds largest echo chamber.
How does she get away with using our servicemen (and women) to play the part of Cinderella’s footmen?
This place gets more Orwellian every day. Now we get both on TV on a constant basis.
How much did this gig cost the taxpayers I wonder?
Well,I’d like to see Mooch wind up running as the true and only nominee-—she would have NO chance of winning.However, at this point, it hardly matters:an opposition candidate from our side, wearing the (R) label is going to have infinitely MORE work to do to rescue the nation and the economy from Obama’s damage than Romney ever faced. It really doesn’t look good, no matter who runs from either party.The future is in OUR hands,folks.
Thank goodness I went to bed and missed Moochelle. But I did catch Babs singing in tribute to Marvin Hamlisch. She was a clear example of what 5 gallons of botox can do for you.
That is my biggest surprise, that she didn’t have Air Force Wookie One fly her out there to do the presenting.
I figure the reason is that Hollywood didn’t want all those Secret Service Wookie agents out there in the way.
Hogging the camera is one of Michelle’s favorite things to do.Remember when she called to tell the Photogs she was going to Target in Va.?
I am appalled at the presence of the military aides serving as a backdrop to this spectacle. Any self-respecting officer would find something else to do than to act as window-dressing for such a garish display of narcissism. Note how they pushed the girls up front with their big s#1t-eating grins and star-struck eyes. Revolting.
Apparently, the White House was throwing a full-blown Oscar party; Michelle was wearing a very expensive designer dress, and she had what looked like a dozen people dressed up like high-class movie ushers.
I think that party could have paid for at least a dozen furloughed employees.
Those were military? I thought they were dressed-up high-class theater ushers.
I believe Josef Goebbels used to be the host of the Nazi version of the Academy Awards.
