Talk about a mouthful…. Star Trek Into Darkness co-stars Chris Pine and Zoe Saldana hosted the Scientific and Technical Awards on Saturday night for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and it was a true challenge for the established stars to explain the technology in detail before handing out the coveted Oscars. Watch the video as the pair bravely work their way through the lengthy technical jargon.
Zoe drew laughs from Chris and the audience after one particularly lengthy intro, and after she controlled her giggles, she declared, "Whoever's getting that award, you rock so hard. Yee! No, we're truly humbled, by all means, man. I mean, [Chris] can fly off the sky [into] space because of you guys. It's amazing."
Held at The Beverly Hills Hotel, the Sci-Tech Awards are presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for devices, methods, formulas, discoveries or inventions of special and outstanding value to the arts and sciences of motion pictures that have a proven history of use in the motion picture industry.
