In response to Finke: Michelle at Oscars ‘unnecessary and inappropriate’:

 

According to Clear Channel’s Steven Gregory on Twitter:

When Michelle Obama was introduced by Jack Nicholson most of the reporters in the media room groaned….loudly

 

Obama fatigue – it’s not just for righties anymore.

Also, this morning it’s being reported that the Michelle Obama hijack, last night, was part of a failed effort on the part of Harvey Weinstein to get Hollywood’s Obama voters to vote for Silver Linings Playbook for Best Picture.

Naked DC has that story.

The Academy told US Weekly that they approached the First Lady for a part in the annual telecast, but that’s not the whole story. Donor and mega-producer Harvey Weinstein broached the subject with the Oscar producers several weeks ago, and then chartered Disney’s private corporate jet (which they probably get a tax credit for) to fly the producers out to DC, where they met with Weinstein, his daughter and the First Lady’s staff. They then brought Jack Nicholson into the mix and the rest is history.

Weinstein’s motivation was not entirely political, if you can believe it. Weeks ago, he hired the Obama campaign’s public relations “genius” Stephanie Cutter to lobby the Academy to vote for Weinstein’s movie Silver Lining’s Playbook, apparently unaware of the extraordinary talent Stephanie Cutter repeatedly exhibited during the actual Presidential campaign. Cutter then used her social media influence to push for the movie with the legions of Academy voters who pay strict attention to the Twitter ramblings of their favorite campaign team.
