State-Run Entertainment: Moochelle Presents Best Picture Oscar

Hollywood used to represent escapism from real life. Not any longer. Now viewers have to suffer through nonstop political preening and they may well have sunk to the lowest level yet by having this nauseating woman pop up on the television to present the Best Picture Oscar last night.

Can we please get back to the days when we could watch an entertainment or sports program without the ubiquitous presence of the Obamas? Frankly we’re surprised they didn’t just have her present the Best Actor Oscar to her husband for his role as a president who pretends the sequester wasn’t his idea.

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.

The appearance was arranged by Obama donor Harvey Weinstein, a fat slob who obviously hasn’t taken here “Let’s Move” campaign too seriously.

The Obama appearance was treated like a state secret, known to only a few of those working on the show. It was intentionally kept off the show’s run sheets, so it wouldn’t leak. On the Friday before the show, the Academy issued a release announcing that Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman would be serving as presenters. The announcement included a statement from Zadan and Meron that said, “Their participation in this year’s Oscars completes a list of presenters and performers that truly represents that greath breadth and depth of acting talent in film today.”

The person seen via satellite on the Oscars show handing her the envelope was Robert Moritz, the chairman of PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

Enjoy the comments at the link. As Ace says, we can never escape these people.

Update: Roger L. Simon unloads.

Shame, shame on all sides.

Hollywood has enough of a reputation for being in the pocket of the Democratic Party, but now they not only are in the pocket, they’re in the wallet, the purse, the laptop, the vestibule, the fax machine, the refrigerator, the oven, the slow cooker, shoes, socks, bell, book and candle and just about everything else.

Well, let’s hope those tax benefits keep rolling in.

    By doing this they made it clear Zero Dark Thirty had no hope. Michelle presenting the award to it after the controversy? Awkward.

    I love downloading worthless hollywood flicks for free. They are entertaining for about 15 minutes.

    Kinda reminds ya of a banana republic where everywhere you look there is a billboard of dear leader. Turn on the teevee and dear leader is on every channel.

    Oscars jumped the shark for me when The English Patient won Best Picture.
    Having FLOTUS Thang be a presenter removed the last shred of credibility.

    As expected, Only you racists have a problem with this!

    I’m kinda bothered that she got more military support than I did. If you have a problem with that, I’ll gladly haunt you.

    I know no answers man that racism is everywhere! That is why there will never be a black president or attorney general. There will never be a daytime talk show host who is every suburban soccer mom’s imaginary black best friend. Blacks in pro sports? Never gonna happen. There will never be any poverty relief programs for black people. Colleges will never let any black people in. Anyone who deviates from happy talk and socialist utopia pipedream is thought criminal comrade!

    All I see is a disgruntled blogger or set of bloggers so pissed that a black man (& woman) became the 44th President of the most powerful nation in (God knows where cos it isn’t the world) and all u guys can do is put up pieces and articles exhibiting fool-hardiness. Wake up guys, ur stuck for the next 4 years, the earlier u become more constructive, the more liberal minds will listen.

    Excuse me, but the First Lady presented the Oscar from the White House via live video?
    That’s not presenting anything. It’s some kind of grotesquerie but it isn’t a presentation.
    Fola, there may be some commenters here who actually are bothered that the Obamas are black. I’ve never seen anything that makes me believe it, but it could be true. Most of us are bothered that the Obamas make a show of their skin color to hide their hypocrisy. Very different.

    Note to fellatio we don’t care about liberal minds or influencing them. Speaking for myself I don’t give a rat’s ass about your magic mulatto messiah or his proud of my country for the first time wife.

    Obama is mixed race, idiot. If he were a (gasp) conservative, you and your ilk would have already crucified him as an apostate. I’d crawl over a hundred yards of broken glass to vote for Dr. Ben Carson. But then I’m sure you’ve never heard of him. Scratch a Dem find a racist like all the founders of the KKK.
