    It seemed out of place to me. I felt like turning the channel but listened, watched and made it through. I saw several of the movies that were nominated (Argo, Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty) so I was curious about the outcome. I think a slip up was made by "Argo" winning Best Picture. As the narrative most likely consisted of her announcing the winner as "Lincoln". If I had gotten a vote it would have been Lincoln.

    The "jokes" made over the course of the night were generally insulting more than humorous. HPW

    Sorry Ken, but I always use a persons place of birth as there home town. Not sure where in HA he was born.

    But in this case , how can you not like the Blackhawks, one of the original NHL teams and for years a huge rival to the North Stars.

    I cannot really think of a reason why a FLOTUS would make an appearance like this.

    Interestingly, the film industry is benefited by many millions (total into the low billions) of tax credits for film-making. Some come from states or cities. While filming brings some business to the filming locations, it is all "temporary" jobs and business, with very little longer-term impact.
