The FLOTUS Best Picture Oscars Surprise
In a surprise guest appearance at the Oscars tonight, First Lady Michelle Obama announced the winner of the Best Picture award. In her lead up to the announcement, she gave a shout out to the LGBT community:
These nine movies took us back in time and all around the world they made us laugh, they made us weep and they made us grip our armrests just a little tighter. They taught us that love can endure against all odds and transform our lives in the most surprising ways, and they reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage to believe in ourselves. These lessons apply to all of us no matter who we are or what we look like or where we come from or who we love.
Re FLOTUS at Oscars: Forget separation of church and state — we need a separation of Hollywood and state.
