Hollywood is the one part of the country where the Obamas are still respected in any way.
On Thursday, the Emmy Award nominations were released, and with them Hollywood found a new ridiculous way to honor the Obamas.
According to KPHO, a Billy on the Street episode that prominently featured Michelle Obama has been nominated for outstanding short-form live-action entertainment. Michelle appeared on the web show to raise awareness to raise awareness for her “Eat Brighter” campaign.
In the episode, the first lady joined quizmaster Billy Eichner for a special edition of his comedy game show. There, Michelle competed with Big Bird and frequent guest Elena in a supermarket contest called “Ariana Grande or Eating a Carrot?”
Michelle’s press secretary Joanna Rosholm wasted no time in tweeting her congratulations for the Emmy nomination.
“And the Emmy nom goes to “Billy On The Street with @FLOTUS, @BigBird & Elena!!!” Congrats @funnyordie @billyeichner!” she tweeted.
In the race for her first Emmy, Michelle will be competing against the likes of Katy Perry, Zach Galifianakis, and Brad Pitt. Since the Obama have always dreamed about being Hollywood royalty, we’re sure this is exactly where she wants to be.
