What just happened at Oscars 2022? That’s exactly the term currently trending on social media after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock but clearly, there was more head-turning moments at the 94th Academy Awards. For starters, Restore the Snyder verse has joined Twitter’s trend after Zack Snyder’s Justice League bagged the Oscars’ cheer-worthy moment. Yet the biggest win of them all goes to the Denis Villeneuve directed DUNE for receiving six Oscars.
The controversial Chris-Will moment during the Best Documentary Feature awards presentation has viewers choosing sides with some condemning violence while others called out the comedian, since last night’s broadcast. However, video clips emerged online showing Denzel Washington and Tyler Perry comforting the King Richard actor during the commercial break. In fact, Smith also vaguely referenced the incident during his Oscars acceptance speech for Best Actor. The 53-year-old star also echoed a piece of advice he got from Denzel after the slap fiasco, “At the highest moment, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you.”

Rock was contacted by the Lost Angeles Police Department yet “declined to file a police report” regarding the slap. Smith walked up to the Everybody Hates Chris star during the Oscars documentary presentation and whacked him after the 57-year-old made an offensive joke referencing Demi Moore starring in G.I. Jane movie, concerning Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair loss due to a medical condition called Alopecia.
While Smith hasn’t openly responded though his son, Jaden Smith tweeted a brief response. Meanwhile, DC film’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League overtook the Oscars cheer-worthy moment with The Flash (Ezra Miller) speed force scene, topping off the Spider-Man: No Way Home’s “Three Spider-Men Team up” sequence. Furthermore, Snyder’s Army of the Dead also secured the fan-favorite award.
And That’s How We Do It

Since then, Twitter has had DCEU fans and Snyder followers sounding off their plea to see the Snyderverse restored as an Elseworld. Speaking of the spotlight moment of the day – aside from the controversy, DUNE dominated the awards ceremony winning six Oscars for cinematography (Graig Fraser), editing (Joe Walker), score (Hans Zimmer), visual effects (VFX supervisor Paul Lambert, Special effects supervisors Gerd Nefzer, Tristan Myles, Brian Connor), production design (Patrice Vermette and Zsuzsanna Sipos) and sound (editors Mark Mangini and Theo Green, recording mixers Doug Hemphill and Ron Barlett and production sound mixer Mac Ruth).
Thank you to @TheAcademy, but most importantly, to all the @DuneMovie musicians and our leader Denis Villeneuve. pic.twitter.com/XbVBYJ8dHY

CODA from Apple+ also made big wins with Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay. In fact, Troy Kotsur made history by becoming the first Deaf man to win an Academy Award for acting. Unfortunately, the Smith-Chris controversy obscured Sian Heder’s win for CODA’s best screenplay.
