ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY‘Force Awakens’ director J.J. Abrams hints Harrison Ford deserves Oscar love

 

J.J. Abrams is hopeful some of the people who made Star Wars: The Force Awakens will receive Oscar nominations next week.

 

And while he wouldn’t name anybody in particular, the director seemed to suggest that a certain scruffy looking nerf herder, who’s now the biggest U.S. box office star in history, deserved some Academy love.

 

“There are certain people who I know deserve it desperately,” Abrams said when asked about awards while promoting his new Hulu time-travel miniseries 11.22.63 (first trailer here) at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Pasadena on Saturday. “And it would be wonderful if they got it. I feel like the gift of working on that film is such that I don’t need any further validation than the movie being out there and people liking the movie. There are people who I will be disappointed if they don’t get nominated, because I think the work they did was really exemplary.”

 

Pressed to name somebody specific, Abrams declined. “No, because if I mention eight people, the ninth person would be like, ‘Thanks!’” he said jokingly.

 

Abrams then added: “Honestly, it feels very obvious to me who deserves that kind of recognition. They might not even care.”

 

Hmm, which Force Awakens star would be the type of person who wouldn’t care about some big fancy awards show?

 

“I feel like I saw how hard some of these artists worked and I feel like they’re deserving,” Abrams said. “[Even if] they probably don’t.”

 

It’s true. All of it.
