(WASHINGTON TIMES) First lady Michelle Obama added some presidential glitz to the Oscars Sunday night, appearing via live video to open the envelope containing the name of the best-picture winner, “Argo.”

Wearing a silvery art-deco-inspired metallic gown, Mrs. Obama showered affection on the Hollywood stars, writers and production teams and said they are setting a good example for the nation’s children because all the nominees demonstrated that “we can overcome any obstacle.”

That message is “especially important for our young people,” she said, thanking Hollywood for encouraging children “to open their imaginations.”
