Who won the Oscars 2022?

The 94th Academy Awards or Oscars were the most diverse so far and also less criticized meaning that this time the academy did a good job of choosing its winners. The awards show also saw some drama as Will Smith smacked Chris Rock. We’ll highlight the awards in bold so you can easily spot the one you’re looking for.

Who Received an Oscar 2022?

Will Smith won the best actor for his role in ‘King Richard’ where he plays the father of tennis duo Venus and Serena Williams. Jessica Chastain got the best actress award for her role in ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’.

Will Smith’s night at the academy awards was far more interesting, however, as he got physical with Chris Rock who made a distasteful joke about his wife Jada Pinkett. Rock referenced the move ‘G. I Jane’ comparing Jada to the movie’s shaved head actress. Jada suffers a condition known as alopecia which is characterized by hair loss. Will Smith literally woke up, marched onto the stage, and slapped the heck out of Chris Rock. Albeit one slap, we heard it and then he walked back to his seat.

“A Vessel of Love”

On seating down, he kept repeating “Keep my wife’s name out your f*cking mouth.” Apparently, Rock had made it a habit of making bad jokes and almost insults at Jada and he and Will Smith had had a simmering beef for a while. Will Smith later came on stage to apologize to the Oscars and to his fellow nominees saying that he wanted to be a “vessel of love.” He also later apologized to Chris Rock in a social media post calling himself a ‘work in progress.’
