J.J. Abrams Thinks Mark Hamill Will Win an Oscar for Last Jedi

During the 12th Annual Oscar Wilde Awards at Bad Robot headquarters in LA (celebrating Irish talent in entertainment), NY Daily News reports that Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams set the stage for Star Wars: The Last Jedi Oscar hopes. Specifically, for Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill.

“I think we are all going to be very upset if he does not win an Oscar, and no one more upset than Mark,” said Abrams, who may or may not have been kidding given the nature of the awards. “He is hysterically funny. He has done comedy. He is an amazing guy — he can do anything.”

Hamill himself recently joked about doing an Oscar-caliber monologue on Force Awakens, in which he only carried one crucial-but-silent moment of screen time.

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi  opens on December 15, 2017.
