I always dreamed that the score of one of my films would be used to play people off at the Oscars. We did it, Steven! #oscars2013

Richard Dreyfuss, star of “Jaws,” got a chuckle out of the use of the movie’s theme music to cut off long-winded Academy Awards winners.
@richarddreyfuss Proof John Williams can do ANYTHING

The Jaws music cut-off for long-winded acceptance speeches is the greatest addition to awards ceremonies ever. I’d add real sharks.

But not everyone thought it was bloody good fun.
Now they’re playing Jaws music over the winners’ speeches? After that disaster of an opening? Jeez, this is awful. #oscars

I think all the speeches will be short now for fear of the Jaws music. #Oscars
