Knock Knock, Who's there?, Oscar

I understand that the First Lady announced the "Best Picture" winner this evening.

It could have been worse. At least Obama didn't get awarded an honorary Oscar for "Best Performance by a President who isn't named Bush." (That's what his Nobel Prize was for, after all.)

UPDATE: "Argo" beats "Lincoln". Why? Some have pointed out that in Argo, film makers are the heroes.

A different point is that in "Lincoln" Republicans are the good guys. It was Republicans who were anti-slavery; the slave states were mostly Democratic. That doesn't fit the narrative; we can't have that.
