Mike Huckabee News
Feb 23 2013
An excerpt from my show's monologue this evening:
"It's Oscar weekend and the film world prepares to honor the best of Hollywood.
Last year, just weeks after the amazing Meryl Streep appeared on this very show, she was named Best Actress for her spot-on performance as Lady Margaret Thatcher in "Iron Lady." I'm pretty sure that her being on Huckabee was what put her over the top. Can't prove it, but I think the connection is pretty obvious.
If Bradley Cooper wins this year for Silver Linings Playbook, then it will clearly be his appearance on this show that gave him the stature he needed to be treated with the respect he deserves as a great actor and a truly gracious person. Bradley, in your acceptance speech, you don't have to mention anything about our interview and its role in getting you the Oscar. I'm just glad to be of help."
Please tune in!
