In that case, enjoy.     https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1gDnOnCxg2XTnkxelFYMlcwcVU/view

About time!     http://variety.com/2015/film/news/john-williams-tapped-for-44th-afi-life-achievement-award-1201612968/

In case some people never got to see it, AFI has started a playlist. Johnny's speech hasn't been put up yet but the last upload was 45 minutes ago so I assume there are more coming.

Hey all,

 

While online access to the full broadcast of the show seems to remain highly elusive, The Dolby Theatre has shared on their Youtube page a time lapse of their bump-in for the event (along with other events).

 

If I dare say so, it's as fascinating to watch it as video from the event itself.

Anybody interested in watching this, TCM is showing this and a select number of Williams scored movies on MONDAY September 12, including a showing of Spielberg's AFI show as well. 

 

I missed the initial showing so this will be my first time watching the full event so I'm looking forward.  Hopefully anyone else that missed it will get the chance to see it for the first time.

Oh... I misread Wycket's post.  He's saying they'll air when Spielberg won the award, not the Masterclass special.  My mistake.

 

Hahah lol, i just wrote to someone who has a PVR (his DVD Burner is broken so can't burn anything but meanwhile he can record them until he get a new DVD recorder lol) to cancel the recording as "my mistake it seems it's the spielberg / williams collaboration, someone just told me i was wrong" lol !! so i wrote him a 3rd message in 1 minute telling that it's finally the Afi award lol :D but thanks for the link so i could send it to him, i'm sure he'll love it ! his company worked for spielberg before lol (no kidding). they meet peter jackson, spielberg and james cameron one day to sell to them one of their product (that almost any strong gamer know !) :) ).

 

EDIT : loooooool just checked here http://www.tcm.com/schedule/index.html?tz=est&sdate=2016-09-12 , and it's the collaboration one !! ahahahahahha lol .... ok so 4th message to my friend to cancel it lol. i hope he'll not hate  me !! "ok here's marty the stalker again " lol

Haha Marty, I was thinking the same thing. I was hoping he meant the old Spielberg ceremony too but then I double-checked TCM.:P

 

Lol.... in France we tell this "hope help to live !!"  lol... let's hope "one day"... hey watched the short excepts of the AFI of Williams the other day (i need subtitles so could only watch it with the youtube sub translator). what's the problem with lucas ? he's the only one who seems to not being happy to be there, he came back from the cimeter or what ?

This show was truly magical. Did anyone else get tears watching this?

 

Of course, as a big JW fan, I would have liked to have seen maybe a few more montages showcasing his more peripheral, but by no means lesser, scores. For example, it would have been really cool to have seen a clip from JFK while The Conspirators theme was playing, or a montage of the great 70's scores he did. Or the end theme from Dracula 1979. For example I loved watching the clip with score from Accidental Tourist, and the spotlight on Home Alone. These are scores from JW that we don't see celebrated so often. This was truly a great, emotional watch.

I think Tom Cruise was the most genuine in his praise of Williams. I wouldn't be surprised if that guy had a vast JW collection, including the Japanese release of SpaceCamp.

 

If he does, we have something in common.

To be fair, the event itself was rather underwhelming (and probably among the least satisfying AFI LAAs I've seen). That whole Will Ferrell gag at the beginning was partiularly embarassing.

 

Amazingly, I actually had an invitation to this event, but obviously couldn't afford the trip itself.
