OSCARS. The Oscars wrapped up on Monday, March 28, 2022. “Coda” won Best Picture, but the night was ruined when Will Smith punched Chris Rock. The actor went on to win an Oscar. Back on the winners and the best moments of the evening.
It was certainly the moment that will be remembered to talk about the 2022 Oscars. Will Smith got up to punch Chris Rock in the middle of the ceremony, while the comedian made a joke about his wife. Below, BFM TV invites you to review the sequence which is sure to cause controversy:
According to information from Variety, citing the LAPD, Chris Rock “refused to press charges” against Will Smith after he punched him during the 2022 Oscars. became aware of an incident between two individuals during the evening of the Oscars, one of them having slapped the other. The latter has refused to file a complaint about the moment.
The 2022 Oscars were disrupted by Will Smith’s intervention… And not in a good way! As Chris Rock jokes about the shaved head of the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, the Oscar-winning comedian for The Williams Method gets up and punches the comedian in the face without further warning. He then shouts, “Leave my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth!” The sequence caused unease in the assembly. Later, on receiving the Oscar for best actor, Will Smith apologized to the Academy and the other nominees, before recalling his role as protector and father of a family. He had tears in his eyes.
In all respects, the Oscar for best actress in a supporting role received by Ariana DeBose for her role in West Side Story is historic. First, he crowns an openly queer actress for the first time, since the young woman has clarified in the past that she is part of the LGBTQ+ community. Above all, she won the Oscar for best actress for her role as Anita, exactly 60 years after Rita Moreno won this award… for the same role!
Dune is perhaps the big winner of the 2022 Oscars: if it did not win any statuettes in the queen categories, it is the film which won the most prizes since it left with six Oscars: Oscar de Best cinematography, best editing, best sound, best sets, best original music, and best special effects.
Coda was crowned Best Film at the 2022 Oscars, creating general surprise since it beat the favorite, The Power of the Dog. The feature film is already visible to subscribers of the AppleTV + streaming platform since the film has not been released in cinemas in France.
The victory of Coda is also the coronation of France! This drama, remake of The Aries family on the deaf community, is a Franco-American film produced in particular by Philippe Rousselet.
The rule of nominations does not guarantee to win the prize. The Power of the Dog was the big favorite of the ceremony, accumulating 12 nominations. However, he only won the Oscar for best director, crowning Jane Campion for the first time in his career. West Side Story also won only one Oscar, Best Supporting Actress for Ariana DeBose. Belfast won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay but no other nominations.
If the name of Coda may not speak to you, its story most certainly: it is the adaptation of the film The Aries family, a popular success in France.
