Everyone who is anyone seemed to be at the Oscars last night, even those from a galaxy far, far away.

Midway through the ceremony, three droids from the Star Wars universe crashed the celebrations while attempting to find their seats, much to Jacob Tremblay’s enjoyment.

C3PO, R2D2 and BB-8 walked, drove and rolled onto the main stage to celebrate the work of John Williams, the man who has soundtracked countless classics including Star Wars, ET and Schindler’s List.


The five-time Oscar winner was up for best soundtrack for The Force Awakens, but lost out to Ennio Morricone and his score for The Hateful Eight.

While that may have definitely been Anthony Daniels’ voice coming from C3PO, the chances are it wasn’t actually him under the hood, instead probably being Chris F. Bartlett.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was nominated for five awards, but failed to take any home, with Mad Max: Fury Road instead taking home six.
