Best Picture Oscar

First Lady

NOT First to Know

2/25/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


It's a good bet Michelle Obama was not the first person to open the envelope for Best Picture ... and she may not have been the second, third or fourth. 

It is inconceivable an envelope from the outside world could end up in the White House, in the First Lady's hands, without a thorough, inside-and-out inspection. 

The upshot ... Michelle may be First Lady, but she wasn't first to know "Argo" took home the big prize.

We did some digging to find out exactly who handled the goods. The First Lady's press office said they'd call around to find out the answer and get back to us, but so far that hasn't happened.

As for the Secret Service ... an official said this to TMZ, "We're not gonna comment on that."  We're guessing they weren't rooting for "Lincoln."

So for a family who doesn't mix religion with government they decide to mix Hollywood with government! Why is she and her husband always looking for a spot for themselves on TV. They remind me of the Kardashians now, and Michelle's back end is a duplicate of Kim's!

Why are so many people talking **** about our president and his wife?! did you guys forget CONGRESS? There the ones that pass all these bills, not the president. And about the First Lady going to the Oscars, yea she might have wanted to go BUT they have a entire publicity team that organizes all these outings, so stop blaming everything soley on the president. there is never going to ever be a president were going to agree with

I agree they spend to much time in Hollywood and all the talk shows. Never seen a president and first lady waste so much money on serurity so they can be in the lime light.

She's such a media whore compared to past First Ladies. From iCarly cameos to Oscar presenter and just about every talk show in between. This bitch is definitely angling for a Hollywood career post White House. Bet you anything she want's her own talk show show.

Michele Obama might as well be one of the Kardasians. She's iike a reality star with clout, worming her way into the Oscars which are reserved for actors who have earned the privilege. WHY IS SHE GIVING AWAY BEST PICTURE? Jack Nicholson was on stage.....THATS who they want to give them an award.

Michele is hopping from show to show....Kimmel, Ellen, Nickolodeon, The View...I think she's hoping for a talk show when she divorces er when her and her husband are out of office.

In Europe at soccer games, players who are not lily white are greeted with monkey calls and pelted with bananas . I doubt any of them or any of you who are spewing racist bulls*#? Would have the cahones to do it to their faces. People need to stop hating. All terror and most tragedies begin with fear and hate. When will it end. People get upset at the state of this and that in the world....look at yourself people. Treat others as you would like to be treated and maybe then this would be a peaceful planet. We are all human beings with differences and until we get our chit together we are all doomed!
