- A journalist shared a picture from Vanity Fair Oscar dinner
- “This is everybody at my table,” he wrote
- “Googling wtf Will Smith just said to Chris Rock,” he added
Hollywood’s biggest award night was eclipsed by one big uncomfortable moment between Will Smith and Chris Rock, when the former slapped Chris Rock on stage. Here’s a little background: When Chris Rock appeared on the stage to present the award for Best Documentary Feature, he made a joke about Will Smith’s wife and actor Jada Pinkett Smith being in “G.I. Jane” because of her appearance, which triggered the The Pursuit Of Happyness actor, who hit Chris Rock and returned to his seat and yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f*****g mouth.” Later, while receiving the Best Actor trophy, Will Smith apologised to the Academy and its nominees.
The dramatic moment, needless to say, had consequences. Memes and posts have been shared online since the incident took place. Meanwhile, Journalist Derek Blasberg shared picture from a Vanity Fair Oscar dinner, where everyone was busy googling about the incident and he wrote: “Meanwhile, this is everybody at my table at the Vanity Fair Oscar dinner manically googling wtf Will Smith just said to Chris Rock.”

On a lighter note, there were some fun moments too that took place at the 94th Academy Awards. There was The Godfather reunion with Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Francis Ford Francis Ford Coppola. Another reunion of team Pulp Fiction, including Uma Thurman, Samuel L Jackson and John Travolta. Besides the reunion, Beyonce performed after 3 long years. And, of course, there were awards handed out to the winners.
