In late February Michelle Obama, just back from her lavish Aspen ski vacation, made a surprise appearance on the Oscar’s.
The celebrity First Lady introduced the Best Picture Award to Argo.
Michelle’s $8,990 dress was too hot for the Mullahs. The Iranian news photoshopped the First Lady with sleeves.
This week the regime honored Michelle with their “Wet Gunpowder Award” for her presentation at the Oscar’s.
Iranian Press TV reported:
Iran has presented a special award to US First Lady Michelle Obama for revealing the influence that the White House sways over the Hollywood film industry, Press TV reports.
The prize, named the Wet Gunpowder Award, was showcased at a ceremony in the southwest Shalamcheh district on Saturday.
The Iranian organizers of the award ceremony stated that since Michelle Obama announced American director Ben Affleck’s anti-Iran drama, Argo, as the Oscars’ Best Picture for 2013, they decided to present the award to the US First Lady.
Made on a budget of about USD 44 million by the Warner Bros, Ben Affleck’s Argo is replete with historical inaccuracies and distortions in cinematic representation of the 1979 US Embassy takeover in Iran.
“The US First Lady presented a so-called artistic award to a film that is clearly anti-Iranian. What does that mean? No artists, even the ones that have Western mindset, believe that Argo is a film worthy of even a national award. That film is definitely not artistic enough to qualify for an international ward; an award that is claimed to be given to the best movie in the world — the Oscar,” Commander of the Basij Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi told Press TV.
“One of the programs that has made this conference more important is giving the Michelle Obama, the First Lady of the United States, the Wet Gunpowder Award. She won the award because she showed the world that the Zionists in the White House have an immense influence and control over the Hollywood film industry,” Yaqoub Soleimani, a commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said.
