When Michelle Obama appeared on screen at the 85th Annual Academy Awards to present the Oscar for Best Picture, many were shocked that she was able to be part of Hollywood's Biggest Night.
But thanks to a little movie magic, the producers of Argo – Ben Affleck, George Clooney and Grant Heslov – were given their Award by the First Lady herself.
Here's how it became Oscar history:

Jack's back – at the Oscars.
Legendary actor Nicholson will join Dustin Hoffman as presenters at Sunday's Academy Awards. Both stars are 75.
"Between the two of them, Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman have created more iconic characters than any other pair of actors in the world," says a statement from show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. "Their participation in this year's Oscars completes a list of presenters and performers that truly represents that great breadth and depth of acting talent in film today."
Other presenters include Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Salma Hayek Pinault, Melissa McCarthy, Liam Neeson and John Travolta.

That's one lucky hand!
Michael Douglas took in a game of blackjack on Monday night at the Tropicana in Las Vegas.
"He was just having fun and fooling around passing time with other guests," an onlooker told PEOPLE.
Douglas's spot at the table might have been for more than just fun. The 67-year-old actor is slated to appear in Last Vegas, an upcoming film about four best friends in their 60's who decide to forgo retirement and throw a bachelor party in Las Vegas instead.

With basketball big shots Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh teaming up in Miami, fans can expect the games to pack a lot of heat. But it's not just the players that are bringing the sizzle.
Like the Los Angeles Lakers games on the West coast, Miami Heat games are star-studded events, known to bring out celebs like Kim Kardashian, Celine Dion and Beyoncé Knowles to courtside seats.
Plan on attending a Heat game? You may be sitting on the sidelines with J.Lo and Marc Anthony, who own a waterfront condo in Miami. Floridian Jimmy Buffett never misses a game – or a move – and he often gets floor seats, which makes him just as fanatical as Jack Nicholson at a Lakers game.

Call it civic duty or patriotic pride, Hollywood is no stranger to showing support for the red, white and blue. Actors and filmmakers alike have produced films about protecting and defending our country against everything from terrorists to aliens to giant astroids. Whether based on real-life leaders or leaders created by a screenwriter's imagination, some of screen's heaviest hitters have taken their turn portraying the President of the United States. But who served the office best? Our faves are:

A studio executive could open a summer's worth of blockbusters with the celebrities sitting court side at a single L.A. Lakers' playoff game.
Just how do Hollywood's finest manage to get those prime locations court side and in the lower bowl? Some buy in bulk – Lakers' season ticket holders include Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Dustin Hoffman, Penny Marshall, Dyan Cannon and Glenn Frey, to name a few. But that's not the only way to get a foot on the floor. "The main way most of the celebrities get in are through seats given to them by studios, record companies, major talent agencies and production companies," says Lakers' spokesman John Black. "On a given night, we may have 40 celebrities here but I may only be aware of five of them myself."

All the star power in the world couldn't keep the Lakers from blowing a 24-point lead in their devastating loss to the Boston Celtics Thursday night at L.A.'s Staples Center.
"Good for Boston," Will Smith graciously conceded to PEOPLE after the Celtics' 97-91 win. He was followed to the exits by a grim-faced Jack Nicholson, a dejected Penny Marshall and disconsolate Justin Timberlake.
But the crowd – which included L.A. supporters Denzel Washington, Tobey McGuire, David Beckham, Nicky Hilton, Ryan Seacrest, Randy Jackson, Dustin Hoffman and Fergie – did contain a few Boston fans.

As that "great determinator" Super Tuesday quickly draws near, some new high-powered celebrity endorsements – as well as additional bolstering by loyal top-name supporters – are adding further rhetoric to the race.
Among the latest names to rally 'round a hopeful is Jack Nicholson, who on Monday revealed his support of Democrat Hillary Clinton on the Rick Dees in the Morning Show on Los Angeles's Movin' 93.9 FM.
Nicholson's move, which puts him in the same league as longtime Clinton boosters Barbra Streisand and Danny DeVito, follows Sunday's appearance by Oprah Winfrey at a Los Angeles rally for Barack Obama. (Also over the weekend, celebs including Scarlett Johansson lent their singing voices to "Yes, We Can," a YouTube music video, shown below, supporting Obama.)

"I don't do television. I've never done a talk show, never was on with my dear friend Johnny [Carson]. And I won't play golf on television, either. I tell 'em I'm too expensive for television."
Jack Nicholson tells Golf Digest why his pal Clint Eastwood hasn't talked him into playing in the AT&T at Pebble Beach tournament
