Who is hosting the oscars 2022
A trio of actresses and comedians were responsible for hosting the Oscar Academy Awards. Wanda Sykes, Regina Hall and Amy Schumer are veterans of the entertainment industry and are perfectly capable of building an atmosphere around such an event. Of course, hiring three women as hosts was perfect material for Schumer, who quipped that it was cheaper than hiring one man anyway. If it was frugality that drove the academy, it paid off handsomely for them as the ladies did a great job of running the event.
Oscar gifts for nominees – what have they got?
Gifts are a long-standing tradition at the Oscar party. As usual, they are also disgustingly expensive and exceed $100,000. What will the nominees wipe their tears with this time? Everyone will get their small plot of land in Scotland, which also entitles them to receive the title of nobility.
They also receive a gift card entitling them to a twelve thousand dollar hand liposuction procedure. In addition, they are paid for a remodeling or renovation service for the mansion valued at twenty-five thousand dollars. In the bag there were a series of rejuvenation treatments, worth ten thousand dollars. Alongside this, they are guaranteed a four-day stay at the luxurious Golden Doors resort, worth fifteen thousand dollars. And also many more “smaller” gifts.
Will Smith slaps Chris Rock – setup or scandal?
The winner of the Best Actor award did not appreciate the joke of Chris Rock, who momentarily had access to the microphone. The comedian had the gall to make a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s appearance, suggesting that she could star in a sequel to G. I. Jane. Whether Chris Rock knew that Jada’s shaved head is related to the disease or not – remains an open question. What is worth emphasizing – the joke was weak in a double sense. Chris Rock is capable of mocking anyone to the core and, on top of that, inducing salvos of laughter – this comment did not achieve either of these goals.
Aware of the situation, immediately began to speculate that everything could have been a setup. From Chris Rock’s bad joke, through moderate reaction of the insulted woman herself, to Will Smith’s behavior, who first laughed and only later delivered a blow with an open hand. You’ll have to judge for yourselves whether this is a scandal or a set-up to boost ratings for the next awards show.
Did you watch the Oscars Academy Award? Was your favorite winner or who you felt that should win? Who was undeservedly overlooked? And what do you think, the situation with Will Smith and Chris Rock is a marketing ploy or the new norm of communication in Hollywood? Tell us in the comments.
