The Oscars were last night, and this is definitely a night in award show history that we are not going to forget. CODA, won all three of its nominations for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor. Dune took home six Oscars, including Best Cinematography, Visual Effects and Best Production Design. Hosts Amy Schumer, Regina Hall, and Wanda Sykes did a great job leading the event, and seemed to have fun while doing it too.
However, what everyone has been talking about lately is how Will Smith straight up slapped Chris Rock. Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Will Smith apparently felt that the joke went too far.
