Every year there are small performances and appearances that are fun for the audience… winks to the crowd… with cameos. Some cameos are basically Easter eggs. Some cameos are more intricate to the plot. All are fun.
So here is the EYG Stan Lee Movie Cameo Award
Previous Winners: John Cena, Two-Time Winner Stan Lee, Chris Evans, Sigourney Weaver, Hugh Jackman.
Runners-Up: Elton John (Kingsman 2), Weird Al Yankovic (How to Be a Latin Lover), Gwyneth Paltrow (Spider-man: Homecoming), Matt Damon (Thor: Ragnarok), Bruce Willis (Split), David Hasselhoff (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Joe Manganiello (Justice League), Stan Lee (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok)
Yoda (Star Wars: The Last Jedi)
There were a ton of great cameos this year. I thought this award was going to Elton John for his over-the-top appearance in Kingsman. Bruce Willis showed up and completely changed the perception of Split.
However, then a certain force ghost showed up…
The scene with Yoda and Luke Skywalker is one of the best scenes in The Last Jedi and is based solely in the character. This was the old Yoda. Puppet Yoda. Not the CGI Yoda that we got in the prequels. Frank Oz returned for the voice and it was wonderful and very funny.
And I guess Force Ghosts really do need to sit down.
