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."

This group in the White House are bigger camera hogs than Hollywood. Why did they find the need to do this? Ridiculous.

Michelle Obama is like Heidi Klum with a college degree, they both love to be the center of attention and will act like a moron to do it. While Heidi likes to dance on tables, Michelle prefers to dance on TV shows. They both act like idiots

What she does best, put on a show. She can't practice law because she broke the law and lost her license to practice.

anyone else wondering if Michelle got her forehead and around here eyes botoxed?
the first thing women usually do once they've had botox or even plastic surgery is change hair-dos and the drastic blunt bangs sure are a change!

Mrs. Obama was the classiest of the presenters. She is beautiful and smart. I loved seeing her that evening.

Seriously, that fat cow should have been wolfing down Cheetos at home instead of pimping herself to Hollywood. The Obamas are shameless self-promoters. Duh, so is all of Hollywood.

Ironic that the First Lady gives an award to a film depicting the rescue of US Embassy personnel when her own husband did absolutely nothing to rescue our people in the Benghazi consulate. Ironic.
