Pulp Fiction stars Uma Thurman and John Travolta recreated the iconic 1994 Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction dance scene to celebrate the movie’s 27th anniversary at the 94th Annual Academy Awards.
John and Uma played footsie for a second while co-star Samuel L. Jackson stood by and watched. “Some actors stay in character through an entire shoot, and some, well, they just never let it go,” he said.
Uma also made another reference to the movie, which follows the story of two hitmen and a gangster’s wife in Los Angeles. “Maybe later we’ll have a $5 milkshake,” she wondered, while John asked, “How about a royale with cheese?” And Jackson told the audience, “Pulp Fiction was a masterpiece, but these two think it was all about a dance contest.”
Uma, John, and Sam all earned Oscar nominations for their Pulp Fiction roles. The movie was also nominated for Best Picture and earned director Quentin the award for Best Original Screenplay.
Samuel recently reflected on his snub in an interview with The Sunday Times in Feb. “I should have won that one,” Jackson said, also calling his performance in 1991’s Jungle Fever awards-worthy. “But, Oscars don’t move the comma on your check, it’s about getting asses in seats and I’ve done a good job of doing that,” the Marvel star went on.
