Did you watch the recently concluded Oscars 2022, guys? If so, what are your favorite moments?

If you are not up-to-date, the 94th Academy Awards—which was held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 27, 2022—was hosted by Regina Hall, Amy Schumer, and Wanda Sykes. The big winners of the night were Jessica Chastain and Will Smith who won the best actress and actor awards in a leading role respectively. “CODA” bagged the Academy Award for best picture while “Encanto” won the best animated feature film. Meanwhile, “Dune” took home six Oscars including the one for best cinematography and best visual effects.

Here are the unforgettable moments during the Oscars 2022:

  1. Will Smith, who finally won the best actor award for King Richard on his third nomination, slapped Chris Rock over the joke the latter made about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair.

“Jada, I love you, G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it,” Rock said, referring to Pinkett-Smith’s shaved head. And the rest, as they say, is history. Watch the exact moment as it unfolded below:

For its part, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences issued a statement after the incident saying that they do not condone violence of any form.

  • Kristen Stewart stole the show with her Chanel tuxedo and shorts. She later changed into another Chanel outfit, a see-through gown, for the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party.

She was also seen at the Academy Awards red carpet with fiancée Dylan Meyer.

  • Ariana DeBose made history as the first Afro Latina and openly queer actor of color to win the Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in “West Side Story.”

  • Troy Kotsur, the star of CODA, makes Oscars history as the first Deaf man to win in acting. He took home the Best Supporting Actor award.

  • Timothée Chalamet’s attention grabbing Louis Vuitton getup, and with a face like his, it’s no wonder that Twitter exploded at the sight of him.

  • Lady Gaga’s heartwarming moment with Liza Minnelli, and can we gush for a moment about how beautiful Lady Gaga is in her Tuxedo?
