Will Smith, Chris Rock confrontation shocks Oscar audience

A 94th Academy Awards that steadily maintained a buoyant spirit was rocked by an unbelievable exchange after Will Smith took offense to a joke made by Chris Rock about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

After Rock joked to Smith that he was looking forward to a sequel to “G.I. Jane,” Smith stood up from his seat near the stage, strode up to Rock and slapped him. After sitting back down, Smith shouted at Rock to “keep my wife’s name out of your (expletive) mouth.” When Rock, who joked about Jada Pinkett Smith while hosting the Oscars in 2016, protested that it was just a “GI Jane” joke, Smith repeated the same line.

BTS has a video message for the Oscars

BTS introduced the Will Smith starrer King Richard as the Best Picture nominee via video message.

The 2021 Oscars met with a lot of criticism as the Best Actor award was moved to the last spot to close the ceremony instead of the Best Film award. With Chadwick Boseman being nominated, and Anthony Hopkins winning the award, who was not even present in person to collect the statuette, the audience felt that the organisers manipulated the audience emotionally.

The ceremony was not held at the Dolby Theatre and was scheduled at an indoor-outdoor venue with many celebrities giving the Oscars a miss. The Best Film award was won by Nomadland, and the Best Director was also won by Chloe Zhao. Anthony Hopkins won the Best Actor for The Father and Frances McDormand won the Best Actress for Nomadland.

The 2021 ceremony did not receive favourable reviews from the viewing audience prompting the makers to make a lot of changes in the ceremony for 2022.
