Veteran actor Harrison Ford's presentation of the Oscar for Best Film Editing at the 93rd Academy Awards 2021 was rather unusual. He started his presentation speech by reading out a list of comments brutally criticizing his 1982 classic 'Blade Runner'. Ford then presented the award to winning film 'Sound of Metal' which had already bagged the Oscar for Best Sound.

Harrison Ford's rather bizarre speech on the Oscars stage soon prompted Twitter users to speculate if he was high at the time. While jokes were rampant about him smoking a joint backstage, many also wondered how he might have reacted to 'My Octopus Teacher' winning the Oscar for Best Documentary.

'Harrison Ford backstage sharing a joint with the octopus'

Twitter users did not stay behind in posting hilarious jokes and funny banter about Harrison Ford at the Oscars 2021 ceremony, assuming that he was completely reluctant to be there. In addition, his unexpected and 'wacky' speech fuelled rumors of him smoking a joint backstage. 

"Harrison Ford backstage sharing a joint with the octopus," tweeted character actor James Urbaniak. "I love how no matter where Harrison Ford is, you can tell he doesn't want to be there," joked Sam Stryker.

"The Octopus and Harrison Ford are two stars who’d rather be anywhere else," a user wrote, while comedian Andy Juett added, "Wow. The rich octopus doc guy just yelled, “we’re all going to Harrison Ford’s house to eat my teacher!” #Oscars".

Louis Virtel tweeted, "Harrison Ford seems like someone who’s lost his temper about the price of apples these days," while Emily Nussbaum posted, "Harrison Ford wins the Oscar for best introduction to an award."
