Lord of the Rings Stars Wear Lucky Charms to the Oscars

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King’s Oscars sweep was helped along with the green gemstone necklaces the cast members wore to the ceremony.

The movie picked up all of its 11 Academy Award nominations, including Best Director for Peter Jackson and Best Movie on Sunday night. And stars Sir Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan attended the show proudly wearing their lucky accessories – which had to be given to them by somebody else to make the charm work.

Sean Astin said, “I was given mine by Orlando Bloom. And that makes me the envy of a few million women.”

McKellen added, “And a few million men!”
