C-3PO, R2-D2, And BB-8 Crashed The Oscars To Celebrate John Williams

The Oscars is the biggest awards show of the year, so naturally we can all expect some special guests making an appearance to stun a Hollywood audience that’s seen it all. But the Academy went to another level this year, somehow tracking down C-3P0, R2-D2 and most impressively, BB-8 and putting them on the big stage in L.A. Some major, intergalactic hoops were gone through to pay off a meta John Williams joke. Bravo.

Though the voice was clearly Anthony Daniels’, it was probably this guy under the gold metal known as C-3PO’s skin.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was nominated for 5 Academy Awards this year, but so far the film has come up short, getting beaten by in every category Mad Max: Fury Road in every category so far.

One remains: John Williams is nominated for Best Original Score for his Force Awakens work. Will the three droids end up being a good luck charm for Williams tonight? He’s has been nominated for 50 Academy Awards, winning only 5 times. His third Academy Award was for the Star Wars: A New Hope score. He hasn’t won since his work for Schindler’s List in 1993. Maybe there’s some Star Wars magic brewing.
