    This just shows how weird and cutting edge Star Wars was back then. I miss the good old days of the Academy Awards.

    Who designed that set? It's amazing no one broke their neck. Only someone who never wore heels would think all those steps were smart. And weren't the cameramen paying attention during rehearsal? They missed half of their cue. All that staging and half of it is in the dar.
