George Lucas was recognized for his contribution to American culture through the arts on Sunday night at the Kennedy Center Honors celebration – but with a bit of a Star Wars twist.

"I wanted to be there to help celebrate your Kennedy Center honor in person, but hey, since you invented video voicemail, I don't have to be," Fisher joked.
