The event capped a night that saw Koda win Best Picture for a predominantly deaf artist, while Troy Kotsur made history as the first deaf male actor to win a gong and Sir Kenneth Branagh won the Best Original Screenplay award for his semi-autobiographical. Film Belfast.
The incident between Smith and The Rock is, as expected, making headlines and was a major topic of conversation at Monday morning’s GMB with Richard Madley and Susannah Reid.
Richard, 65, was back at the helm of the ITV news program with Susannah, 51, after being replaced by Martin Lewis and Adil Rey at last week’s show.
The pair spent much of the program discussing Smith’s reaction, referring to Pinkett Smith’s buzzcut, Rock said: “Jada, can’t wait for GI Gen 2”, causing the actress to roll her eyes. Inspired to perform, Smith later went on stage and appeared to hit the rock before returning to his seat and shouting twice: “Put my wife’s name out of your f****** mouth. “
The controversy shocked and terrified The Rock as he tried to renegotiate the Best Documentary Feature category, but the incident cast a cloud on Smith’s acceptance speech for his first Oscar, when he received his portrayal of Richard Williams. Nominated for Best Actor. Tennis star Venus and Serena Williams’ father in King Richard.
Smith apologized to both the Academy and his fellow nominees, but not to The Rock as he collected his gong, jokingly saying that he broke down in tears and “looks like a crazy dad” before his speech.
Susannah and Richard were joined by Kevin McGuire and Andrew Pierce at the event to discuss the latest Oscar news, while Ross King was live from the blue carpet and Noel Phillips, the show’s North America correspondent, was catching up on the stars elsewhere.
Speaking about the incident, Richard described The Rock as “rude” and “obnoxious” and said he was “the most obnoxious person I’ve ever interviewed,” but Susannah intervened; “I honestly think at this time that it can be justified to justify someone who killed someone else on television and just remember, other than the fact that it’s not okay to kill someone, what it’s saying to the people watching. Is.”
Addressing Smith’s acceptance speech, where he says “love makes you do crazy things,” Susanna retorted: “It’s not okay to kill someone,” before showing a clip of his speech.
The hosts discussed what Smith did to “Snap” and Susannah later said: “I’m really impressed with how many people are defending it now and I bet in 24 hours they changed their mind.” must have been given,” Andrew questioned how it would affect Smith’s career.
However, Richard argued that Rock was “dabbling his fingers into other people’s souls” and a “sensitive zone” due to Pinkett-Smith’s alopecia battle.
Susanna and Richard’s debate on the matter went back and forth throughout the show, and Richard remarked that we saw a “moment of flawed humanity” before adding; “Clearly what he did was wrong…” before watching the clip before, during, and after the incident, which was confused to be one stunt at a time, before Susannah jumped in.
“It’s very easy to judge on something like this,” Richard said before injecting Ranveer into how she would feel seeing her nine-year-old son. “I would say to my son, ‘Listen, you have to control your emotions. If someone tells a joke, you go away and tell someone.’ Now it’s crazy to think he’ll think it’s okay.”
A short time later, Richard added the audience’s tweet read: “We’re making a lot of decisions, it’s understandable that it’s our job, but we’re making decisions about a situation that is highly emotional. And you’ve seen it from people who are suffering. [alopecia],
Susanna then added: “I’m not making the decision because it’s my job, by the way. I’m making the decision because I think what he did was wrong.” To which Richard said: “Yeah, that’s what I meant. It’s our job to say what we think,” before saying he’s not sure what he thinks.
“Are you sure you don’t know what you think,” replied Susannah as Richard said what Smith did was “obviously wrong”, but that he “can understand the feelings that underlie it.” does.”
And GMB viewers think there was a bit of tension between the host pair.
