Skip to comments.Michelle Obama’s Oscar cameo was pointless and bizarre

It was a better than average Oscar show last night. Host Seth MacFarlane came under fire for some less than tasteful jokes, but there were also a few terrific highlights.
All in all it was an entertaining evening, recognising some truly great cinematic achievements. However, the entrance of Michelle Obama, via video link, at the end of the ceremony to announce the Best Picture winner was a bizarre moment that was completely pointless. It was reportedly arranged by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, a close friend of the Obamas (hat tip: Drudge Report). If the First Lady was a former actress (à la Carla Sarkozy), or had some official role in promoting the American film industry, it might have made some sense. Mrs. Obama, though, has no connection to the world of cinema.
It was a cringe worthy moment that came across as cynical liberal Hollywood pandering to a Democrat White House, a fitting match for an Obama presidency that is obsessed with show biz celebrities. As Tim Stanley noted earlier, the bias discredits both the White House and movie industry. Even the First Lady herself looked a bit embarrassed by the whole affair, and who knows what Jack Nicholson was really thinking about the spectacle.

Actually, the Royal Rump has a strong connection to Hollyweird and the world of cinema ... like the rest of her Democrap idols ... as abundantly illustrated above
I did catch that Weinstein fat slob caught walking in front of the stage at one point, I can’t recall what was happening at the time but clearly recall seeing his fat head.
I boycotted it, as I do most network programming. The best show on TV is BBC America’s ‘Top Gear’ and that’s about it. I’m shocked the Celebrity-In-Chief didn’t show up and that it was only the ‘First Celebrity’ who did.
I watched “Worst cook in America”
Substitute cook for actor and there that’ve it, the Oscars.
didn’t bother...Duck Dynasty reruns instead.
Hardly pointless. An abject lesson in “See what I can do that you can’t”.
Why anyone watches the “pat me on the back I am more important than you show” dumbfounds me.
Yeah, but FR is talking about it non-stop...
I’m giving up Fallon...Too bad...He had some good stuff...Just don’t like boot lickers...
I heard they had some obamas overflowing at the Oscars.
Methinks Zero is taking this Romanesque bread-and-circuses thing a little too far, but then again, his low-info voters/supporters (including the “media”) are quite a few synapses short of brains. As long as it works for them, huh?
Not from what I saw. Some people owe Franco and Hathaway apologies for slamming their hosting.
Host Seth MacFarlane came under fire for some less than tasteful jokes, but there were also a few terrific highlights.
If you wrote this yourself you probably alienated half your audience. That guy is smug and extremely annoying. As one poster said on another site "There is a grating smarminess about him." Also he wasn't very funny. And he knew he wasn't funny (or should have), so why bother with him?
Michelle Obamas Oscar cameo was pointless and bizarre
No argument there. That woman is starting to get on my nerves.
Where’s Chuck Barris when you need him?
married this (?)
I detest Weinstein...his company has made a few decent films but he is behind much of that in Hollywood that works overtime to transform the US into a vision he and Obama share
the secular progressive dream with folks like them as puppet masters and who think all that came before is one big transgression against them and their forebears
at our expense...Harvey is Obama's go to Hollywood guy like Geffen was for the Clinton's
he does have a nose for good scripts though
I’d much rather watch Gene Gene the Dancing Machine than Moochelle.
Talking about what ?
Ha! I LOVED that guy!
She’s just trying to get in half the face time that her asshat husband gets. Are there twitters about her running for potus?
Moochelle should have one an award for the best Mo Howard look alike with those awful bangs of hers. LOL!
She looks more like a 32 A to me.
Imagine if Laura Bush presented the award...
The left would be screaming for a month about it
There are two more threads on this since this thread.
If the First Lady was a former actress (à la Carla Sarkozy), or had some official role in promoting the American film industry, it might have made some sense.
Great candid pic of the big blob - who are these freaks??
“If Michelle was told to butt out, she’d have to make at least two trips.” - read earlier on the internet
I have often referred to Hillary Clinton as “the Flying Buttress” for her shuttle diplomacy and her keel-heavy need to wear only pantsuits.
That title will now have to be handed on after last night. The new Flying Buttress now comes wrapped in aluminum foil & has a mean looking set of teeth.
No, IMO, it was not a pointless appearance. My opinion C&P’d from another thread:
Setting up Wookievita for the 2016 coronation, of course.
All through the Obama Infestation, she has always seemed like she was telling us all where to go with her outrageous fashions and lack of attempt at looking ladylike and graceful in her position as FLOTUS. I remember thinking that, surely, she had people to teach her protocol, to tell her you dont go outside in shorts with your bra strap hanging out, that you exit a car, a plane, in a certain way etc. I concluded that she, apparently, told all of them to take a flying leap.
I found myself a little puzzled when I could see, on Inauguration Day, that she clearly had been taking lessons in walking. She was obviously trying to put one foot in front of the other, model-style, instead of her usual Frankenstein stagger. Then, she came out with the bangs recently to cover those eyebrows that make her look eternally ticked off.
It all make sense now. Soros has decreed that she will be our first female and first real black president the halfrican doesnt count.
Wookievita perhaps I should get a copyright on that.
I think the whole thing is very instructive. It shows the close ties and warm feelings the one percent people in Hollywood have for the Obamas. And it shows how inane and clueless Hollywood producers are when one of them thinks such and idea would actually go over well.
I’m wondering why Barack wasn’t interviewed for his Oscar picks.
Producing movies takes money, not talent.
Her appearance wasn’t pointless. It was part of the continuing attempt to glorify these two racist occupiers of our White HOuse.
I swear Obama and Michelle are becoming more like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu with each passing day.
And very young wife is preggers with their second child....
Imagine that coupling if you dare!
I was watching “Saving Private Ryan” on TV for about the tenth time. Wife watched the Oscars and briefed me this morning.
While I really liked SPR, the idea that this film allows Speilberg and Hanks to wrap themselves in the flag repulses me...
Band of Brothers, though long, gives me my WWII fix...love it!
Do you think that John Ford directing and John Wayne in Hanks’ role would’ve improved SPR? “Band of Brothers” will live forever.
Nope I know why it was done.
It was to project an image to the low info voter - the kind who watches the Oscars - and tie a film about a successful rescue of embassy staff and have it obscure/transfer over to Obama and confuse the whol Benghazi failure to do anything to save a freaking Ambassador and several staff.
They see Moocher presenting this and talkign about it, and they will transfer these feelings/thoughts subtly to any criticism of Obama on Benghazi and it will play down any negatives about that.
Won’t work on us, but it will on people who like Obama and/or don’t know much about either subject.
Well, yeah...the Duke was the best!
One of my other fave WWII movies, Pacific Theatre, is “They Were Expendable”....absolutely outstanding film....
I’ve got “They Were Expendable” recorded forever.
Watching it every now and then keeps you sane, right?
For REAL torture, being a baby boomer and Nam era young adult, I’ll watch the Christmas Specials Bob Hope did for troops in Southesast Asia where they closed every show with “Silent Night”, all the kids knew the words and no one screamed separation of church and state.
Have yet to make it through with a dry eye....
Shelley owebama isn’t smart enough to have been embarrassed at the spectacle she is.
Just dont like boot lickers...
I think he went down to the crossroads and made himself a deal...
It’s all about fags..........
Hollywood and It’s inhabitants live in a moral and billion dollar cesspool. That so many people give homage and money to support such a place and It’s enablers is a reflection of the character of many people in the USA.It would be interesting to know how much welfare money is being spent on the keeping this cesspool open.
The passion and narnia. my last two movie trips.

I’m a movie goer and go almost weekly. I know many movie lovers and we are all certainly intelligent enough to separate the wheat from the chaff.
It’s 2 hours a week of complete relaxation and entertainment with no interruptions.
