Best Picture Oscar

First Lady

NOT First to Know

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."

Talk about class soblueoctober . That's real classy of the first lady to be at the Oscars. That's why other countries are so ahead of Americans. They make USA look like a joke. This is terrible. First Arnold then her. Same category. Get outta here. Not a good look.

Michelle Obama is the tackiest first lady in history, she has no class at all. She has a need to always be the center of attention and seems obsessed with these Hollywood morons who validate her. She should act like a first lady and not a groupie! I wouldn't be surprised if she had an autographed photo of Beyonce in her bedroom

Obamas are rich because they're war profiteers, no different than Bush with his war profiteering, same as all our "leaders" and politicians and bureaucrats and Washington and special interest etc etc etc

The bangs are looking a lot longer than they were at the inauguration. I'm betting even she realizes how horrid they are and she's made the wise choice to grow them out (one hopes).

Throwback kid is so angry. You hate the First Lady yet you spent time commenting negatively on her, multiple times. This woman is Harvard educated. Are you?

Absolutely disgusting but then we know who the Dems biggest donors are - Hollywood. The WH needs them to keep the propoganda machine rolling and it's doing a fine job. There are no depths to which the current administration won't sink. Just watch the morons on The View or any late night show getting out the word to destroy our country.
