USA Network Monday night 2 hrs
American Film Institute Life Achievement Award
A big black tie & tux ceremony at Kodak Theater in L.A.
to honor Lucas with hundreds of stars in attendance
a big screen showed highlights of all his films.
Lucas sat at a banquet table with Spielberg to his right, and Harrison Ford to his left. Composer John Williams was at the table.
Bill Shatner opened the show - he thought it was a Star Trek convention!
He then did a karoake recitation of "My Way"
bit off more than you could chew...bacca
Shatner had a chorus line of stormtroopers behind him, carried him offstage
There was a tribute to THX-1138 and to American Graffitti
Robert Duvall stood up and made a toast to George
Ron Howard made a screen cameo to discuss AG
Tom Hanks went to the mic and talked about how Cleveland didn't have Star Wars until mid-June '77, weeks late after release
Carrie Fisher went to the mic and was hilarious and very abrasive, practically roasted GL.
Ford, Hamill, Fisher and the droids and Chewbacca went on stage for a cast reunion.
Peter Jackson had a screen cameo - he's lost alot of weight
there were funny clips from SNL and Simpsons and Spaceballs
