At least, that’s what the late-night host said when the star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens stopped by NBC’s The Tonight Show Tuesday. After Ford took his seat in Studio 6-B in New York City’s 30 Rockefeller Center, he first gave Fallon some grief over his introduction. “You keep saying that I’m Academy Award-nominated,” he said. “Don’t you get it? I didn’t win. So why…?”
“Because no one here is nominated,” Fallon said. “They just hear ‘Academy Award,’ ‘Harrison Ford.'” Ford asked, “Oh, nobody here’s nominated?” to which Fallon joked, “No, that’s your own personal hell.” With a sly grin, Ford said, “Oh, s–t. I didn’t know that. I thought you were all nominated.”
Thankfully, Fallon assured his guest, “We love you! We don’t care if you won.”
That’s when Ford noticed Fallon’s missing earring. “Wait a second! Look that way,” he said as Fallon turned his left ear to the camera. The host said,
“I know what you’re going to bring up.”
“What do you mean?” Ford asked.
“No, I know what you’re talking about,” Fallon said.
“You can’t even see it,” Ford said, noting the missing hole.
“It closed up,” Fallon explained.
“It closed up?” Ford asked.
“You’re not an amateur! You’re Academy Award-nominated!” Fallon joked. “You almost won an Academy Award, for God’s sake!”
“And I almost pierced your ear!” Ford quipped.
“You really did, though,” Fallon recalled. “That was good. That was in there pretty good, man. But that giant feather, I couldn’t pull it off, man.”
“I don’t try to rock a feather myself,” Ford said.
