Among the surprise appearances at Sunday night’s 83rd annual Academy Awards was the commander in chief.
President Obama appeared in a recorded clip package to weigh in with his favorite winner for best song in a film. Obama went with a romantic classic, choosing "As Time Goes By" from Casablanca.
The Academy Awards were on Obama’s mind over the weekend. During his speech at a White House dinner for the nation's governors, Obama joked that the black-tie affair resembled the festivities in Hollywood, reports the Associated Press.
"I know some of you may be confused and think this is the Oscars," Obama said to laughter. "There are some similarities. First of all, everybody looks spectacular. And the second is this: If I speak too long, the music will start playing."
