“Javier Bardem and his wife are both nominated. Now, if she loses, he can’t win. He is praying that Will Smith wins, like, please, lord. Jada, I love you. ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it, all right?” The joke got a lukeworm reaction from the audience, Rock added, “That was a nice one!”

Will Smith won the Best Actor award for his role in King Richard (2021), during his award acceptance speech Smith apologised to the Academy and narrated about the significance of family in his life

Now, at the time of commercial break actor Daniel Kaluuya hugged Will while Denzel Washington took him to the side of the stage, as he comforted Smith, actor Tyler Perry joined in and actress Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban talked to Will and Jada as well.
