Harrison Ford warmed the heart of fans after sharing criticism for his movie "Blade Runner." Viewers were also treated to many more memorable moments during the show.
Veteran actor Harrison Ford had the audience reeling in laughter during his presentation at the 2021 Oscars, a low-key yet beautiful event held over the weekend.
Right before presenting the film editing award, Ford hilariously read out a memo containing some criticisms prepared after the screening of the 1982 blockbuster, "Blade Runner."

The note described the voice-over track as terrible while the synagogue music was called awful. It was also included that the movie got worse with every screening.
Ford continued, adding that he read the note to help the audience and many others understand why the editing process in a movie can get a bit daunting.
While the actor's move might have been unconventional, fans were thrilled by it as Ford's presentation garnered many positive reactions online.

Chinese filmmaker Chloe Zhao took home the award for her incredible work in the 2020 movie "Nomadland" for the Best Director category. She makes history as the first Asian and second woman to win the category.
Daniel Kaluuya won the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in "Judas And The Black Messiah," while singer H.E.R won the Best Original Song category for the soundtrack of the same movie.
The 93rd Oscars had many more memorable moments, including Youn Yuh-Jung's acceptance speech which saw her flirt with Brad Pitt while also comforting Glenn Close, who was nominated in the same category.
The 73-year old took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her role as Sonja in the 2020 drama "Minari." This makes her the first Korean woman to win the category in Oscar history.
An emotional highlight of the show came during Thomas Vinterberg's acceptance speech for the foreign-language award, during which he shared the touching story of his late 19-year-old daughter.
Full of glitz, glamour, wins, and losses, the 2021 Oscars was a fusion of all that modern-day Hollywood represents. For many who watched the show, it was also a night of laughter, joyful tears, and several inspiring stories.
