We all know that Harrison Ford is a very unconventional Hollywood star. Whereas many others thrive in their flamboyance and being gregarious, he’s one of those who prefer to remain in their element and do not hesitate in voicing their discontent if they’re forced to socialize outside of it. Moreover, he brings that wit and sarcastic charm to several of his interviews. And so, he continued that tradition as one of the presenters at the 2021 Oscars ceremony as well.
How Harrison Ford stole the night at the Oscars
It’s no hidden secret that Harrison Ford, probably the most famous Star Wars actor there is, doesn’t really enjoy the franchise as much as his fans do. Unlike Mark Hamill, who fully embraced the fandom, Ford historically wanted his character, Han Solo, to die off quickly. And he finally got that wish, however almost 40 years later.
And despite his best attempt to stay off the screen, Ford did appear at the 93rd Academy Awards. There he presented the Award for Best Editing, however, he introduced it in a very peculiar manner. He began by sharing some “editorial suggestions” for one of his most famous sci-fi movies from the 80s – Blade Runner. In it, he played the role of Rick Deckard and reprised the role in 2017 in Blade Runner 2049. He shared some of the suggestions and pretty made everyone chuckle at Union Station.
