Best & Worst Oscar Moments, Including Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock

Oscars night was full of stars and surprises.

The Oscars were hosted at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre. Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes did great joint hosting work.

“Dune” was the star of the night with the most wins, including the best score and best cinematography. “CODA” bagged the best picture award after a tough competition with “The Power of the Dog,” which won the best director award.

But Oscars night was all about Will Smith and Chris Rock. Their on-stage rift turned the Oscars’ night into a wild one.

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock after he made harsh jokes about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

While introducing the best documentary feature award, Chris Rock joked about Jada Pinkett Smith, who is suffering from alopecia and attended the event with a shaven head.

Rock said “Jada, I love you; ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ as Pinkett Smith rolled her eyes in response. However, Smith didn’t take the joke well and went to the stage to slap Rock. After coming back to his seat, Smith asked Rock to keep his wife’s name out of his mouth.

Not just Rock, but everyone was startled by this altercation. Instead of reacting, Rock wisecracked saying that was the greatest night in television history.

Smith later apologizes to the Academy and his fellow nominees during his best actor speech.

The Oscars’ was opened by Beyoncé, who performed the theme song ‘Be Alive’ in Compton.

Beyoncé, in her extravagant fashion, rocked the entire crowd. She was draped in a feathered dress, studded with diamonds. The rockstar opened the award ceremony with her killer performance along with dozens of musicians and back dancers in shades of green. 

Amy Schumer, one of the hosts of the Oscars’ takes aim at Leonardo DiCaprio. After an awkward split between the three hosts, Schumer went on stage for her solo set to roast this year’s nominated movies. She earned shocked laughter after taking a dig at “Being the Ricardos.” 

Schumer said that she reserved her sharpest jab for Leonardo DiCaprio. She continued to say that DiCaprio has done a lot to fight climate change and leave a greener planet for his girlfriends because he is older and his girlfriends were younger.

No. 1 Billboard rapper Megan Thee Stallion gave a killer performance with a brand new verse, along with singers Luis Fonsi and Becky G.
