How Michelle Obama ended up presenting the final Oscar2/25/2013
We were wowed during the Oscars when Michelle Obama joined Jack Nicholson by satellite to reveal 2013's best picture. But her appearance had a secret back-story. Super-producer Harvey Weinstein and his daughter dreamed up the idea of the first lady announcing the winner, but were desperate to keep it under wraps. Oscar producers flew to D.C. to prep with Obama two weeks ago, but told everyone in L.A. they were in New York. Michelle’s appearance was kept off all the show's running sheets backstage, and the Academy even sent out a bogus press release saying Nicholson would present with Dustin Hoffman. It was a hush-hush subterfuge worthy of "Argo" itself. [Source]
