Washingtonians got their wish when Argo won best picture.  Washingtonians like to win, it’s kind of a city trademark.

Argo, of course, is the dramatic thriller based on a CIA operative who led the rescue of six U.S. diplomats from Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis.  So, it was both ironic and fitting that the award was presented by the First Lady.

“The Academy Awards approached the First Lady about being a part of the ceremony,” said Kristina Schake, Communications Director to Michelle Obama. “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.”

Temperatures may have been freezing on Inaugural Ball night, but sure cranked up a notch when Paula Abdul stepped out of a black town car and into Peacock Cafe in a simmering red dress. 

he singer, songwriter, dancer, choreographer, actress, television personality and original judge on American Idol was part of the star power with The Creative Coalition who held their Gala directly after the dinner at The Harman Center for the Arts where the Goo Goo Dolls headlined the evening.

We loved catching up with David Arquette, our ‘fav’ celebrity.

Last time when he was in town we talked to him about Bootsey Bellows, prior to it’s opening in LA and the role of the arts in society.

“Welcome,” she said, “to the Daily Beast Newsweek bi-partisan brunch where democrats, republicans and their food tasters all sit down together.”
