Robin Roberts just gave a War Eagle Shoutout on the Red Carpet Oscar show on ABC!
I missed it, but it's all over Facebook that Octavia Spencer yelled War Eagle....

why did it come up? what was the context before it?
Octavia Spencer, nominated for Best Supporting Actress for "The Help" is a '94 Auburn grad.
I knew bout spencer but not why
Robin did. Did they just blurted out of the blue?
I'm trying to find a video of it. Can't. Might be available later... I know Olivia is all about Auburn - very proud. Her date for the Golden Globes was Josh Hopkins, star of "Cougar Town" who is also an Auburn grad and *I think* he is also her date for tonight!
OK - just talked to someone who saw it. They said that Robin brought up the fact that Octavia went to Auburn and that her (Robin's) friend Nell Fortner just retired and it went from there. So, that is how the WAR EAGLE ended the interview: Octavia went to Auburn and Robin is good friends and an admirer of Nell!!
(Robin is a former basketball player)
She just did it again at 7:15pm during an interview on the red carpet.
