Major drama at the Academy Awards the other night. Chris Rock made a joke at the expense of Will Smith’s wife, so Smith went up to Rock and gave him a helluva slap, then went back and sat down.
Holy shit, right? It’ll go down in the annals of memorable moments on a perennially irrelevant, vapid, and ridiculous program of self-congratulations and outsized ego stroking.
Jimmy Kimmel spent half of his Monday monologue talking about Smith. I think Jimmy’s an unabashed star-struck Hollywood junkie. Or maybe he’s just finding ways to talk up ABC. Between the Oscars and The Bachelor, he engages in an excessive amount of shameless plugging.
