Oscars 2022: Complete List of Winners & Nominees, Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock

Left to right: ‘King Richard’, ‘Coda’, ‘Dune’

Well, the 2022 Academy Awards will sure be one to remember… mostly due to that slap heard around the world. 

First thing’s first:  We’ve got the complete list of this year’s Oscar winners and nominees. CODA took home the big prize, the Apple Original beating the likes of Dune, The Power of the Dog, and Drive My Car, among others, to win this year’s Best Picture. Acclaimed New Zealand filmmaker Jane Campion earned her second Oscar for Netflix release The Power of the Dog, Best Adapted Screenplay was awarded to CODA scribe Sian Heder and multi-hyphenate star Kenneth Branagh received his first (!) Oscar win for Original Screenplay (Belfast).

On the acting side of things: Will Smith and Jessica Chastain became Oscar winners – their first Academy Award wins for Best Actor (King Richard) and Best Actress (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), respectively. Supporting nods went to CODA‘s Troy Kotsur and West Side Story‘s Ariana DeBose.

The newly-introduced Oscars Fan Favourite Award went to Zack Snyder’s Netflix zombie flick Army of the Dead.

Smith vs. Rock

Before we get to the list – yes, Smith all-out slapped Chris Rock on the same stage he would accept an Oscar on not long after. Physical assault? No probs, stick around, here’s your award.

At least part of the reason for the attack: Rock decided to poke fun at Jada Pinkett Smith with a dig at her shaved head look. “Jada, I love ya. G.I. Jane 2 – can’t wait to see it.” Cue Smith walking up on stage, hitting Rock across the face, then sitting back down and yelling, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f****** mouth!”

Here’s the. truly uncomfortable moment.

In December, Jada revealed that she suffers from an autoimmune disorder called alopecia, which can lead to hair loss.

Rock managed to, mostly, keep his composure following the altercation. Something many were wondering after this moment: What would Smith say if he was awarded Best Actor? Sure enough, he won – and he addressed the situation in a teary-eyed speech. He expressed his desire to be a “vessel for love”, adding that “love will make you do crazy things”, and apologised to the Academy and his fellow nominees (Rock, unsurprisingly, was not mentioned in the apology). “I hope the Academy invites me back,” Smith said as he wrapped.

Rock has joked about Pinkett Smith before. While hosting in 2016, Rock targeted Jada over her decision to not attend the Oscars over the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. “Isn’t she on a TV show?” Rock said. “Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited.”
