New York, Feb 26 (ANI): As Michelle Obama announced the nominees and winner of the Best Picture category at the Oscars, conservative critics gave a big thumbs down to the handling of Hollywood's most important annual production.

The surprise appearance of the at the end of the night was said to be "jarring" according to Christian Toto, assistant editor at Breitbart's Big Hollywood, the new York Daily News reported.

"It seemed inappropriate if you're a film fan or a conservative or both like I am. She doesn't have any direct connection to Hollywood, so there's no real reason to give her the plummest gig of the evening," he said.

"It reinforces the perception that Hollywood leans towards the left - there's no way that this would have happened with Laura Bush giving out the night's biggest award," he added.

While Laura Bush was involved in the 2002 Oscar telecast - during her husband's first administration - it was a taped soundbite that appeared during a homage to movies. (ANI)
