Another first for President Obama’s White House.


The first first lady to award the Oscar for Best Picture.


Michelle Obama did the honors late Sunday night, telling the world that Argohad been voted the year’s top film.


Mrs. Obama — appearing at the Oscar ceremony via satellite from the White House, where she and the president had just hosted a dinner for the nation’s governors –also paid tribute to all the nominated films.


“These nine movies took us back in time and all around the world,” she said. “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,” she added, “and they reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we can dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage to believe in ourselves.”


Mrs. Obama’s communications director, Kristina Schake, said in a statement that Academy Awards people approached the first lady’s office.


“As a movie lover, she was honored to present the award and celebrate the artists who inspire us all — especially our young people — with their passion, skill and imagination,” Schake said.
