Meanwhile, aside from the birthday, Obamas are actually having a great week as their Netflix documentary

“American Factory” just scored an Oscar nomination. This is the first creation of their joint production company, Higher Ground Productions. Lots to celebrate!

American Factory” debuted on Netflix in August and is the first project produced by the Obamas’ production company, Higher Ground. It follows the story of a shuttered factory in Ohio after it is reopened by a Chinese billionaire.

The former first lady has been busy since her husband left office. Her bestselling memoir, “Becoming,” was published in November 2018 and sold more copies than any other book published in the U. S. that year.

She also announced earlier this month that she would launch a web series on Instagram’s IGTV intended to “empower and inspire” new college students.

Michelle was also named the” most admired woman” in the U.S. for 2019, according to a poll released in December 2019.

The feeling is most certainly mutual. At Essence Festival 2019, Mrs. Obama spoke about her husband being her “teammate,” and what couples who look up to them should know.
