Michelle Obama presents Best Picture honor during Sunday’s telecast of the Academy Awards? Believe it or not, if you missed last night’s broadcast of the Oscars, you missed a pretty rare thing.
The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, beaming onto the stage via satellite feed from the White House to present the final award of the night: Best Picture.
"These nine movies took us back in time and all around the world," Obama said, after being introduced by Jack Nicholson. "They made us laugh, they made us weep, and they made us grip our armrests just a little tighter.
Soon, Michelle would open the envelope to reveal that Ben Affleck’s “Argo” would win Best Picture at the 2013 Oscars.
On stage, Ben was very congratulatory to his cast and crew, and made sure to thank his wife, Jennifer Garner, as well.
“Argo” has been a fan favorite to win the Best Picture for awhile, along it faced stiff competition against the likes of “Lincoln” and “Life of Pi.”
Although Affleck's "Argo" won Best Picture, Ben himself did not win Best Director. That went to Ang Lee, the visionary director behind "Life of Pi."
