Michelle Gives Oscar a Happy Ending

And the Oscar Goes to "Cross-Country Hand Job"

The Academy actually drafts First Lady Michelle Obama to help presentBest Picture from presumably the White House? So unnecessary and inappropriate to inject politics into the Oscars yet again. Hollywood will get pilloried by conservative pundits tomorrow for demanding this payoff for all the campaign donations it gave the President's reelection campaign. -- Oscars 2013 Live Commentary -- Nikki Finke's Live Snark
A happy ending to all from the First Beard.

Update: After suffering through the 10-hour (well, it seemed like it) show, there was the first lady. In a ball gown. With military service personnel in dress uniform behind her....

It is not enough that President Obama pops up at every sporting event in the nation. Now the first lady feels entitled, with military personnel as props, to intrude on other forms of entertaining (this time for the benefit of the Hollywood glitterati who so lavishly paid for her husband’s election). Why was Michelle Obama at the Oscars?

Your Say

Worthy of Josef Goebbels presenting a gold medal to Leni Riefenstahl for services to the Reich.

The Oscars? Can't think of anything I look forward to missing more. Unless it's the Grammies.

Seth MacFarlane was the best part of that whole monstrosity, because he acted out the true nature of Hollywood that so many of the others pretend to hide.

Come to think of it: MacFarlane was the best choice to host an entertainment event since the Hell's Angels were hired as security at Altamont.
