Kinda makes that whole Jane Campion thing at the Baftas practically benign.

I’d text back “Nope”. All of it so far, with the exception of the Coda awards, this is yet another very uninspiring show. And the Rock/Smith silliness just makes it that much more sad to even spend time watching.

I'm officially giving this a 5 star review now.

And they have to "make up" during the show now. They can't let this awkwardness linger. They'll write something into the show before it's over.

Does he still get to sit there in the front row after assaulting somebody on live television?

Chris Rock handled that really well. He instantly made a joke, being the comedian that he is, as Smith cussed him out and recomposed and managed to give out the award.

Thinking the same. Brazenly assaults a man and is not escorted from the premises by security? Shocking and a new low in the history of the show.

He should be removed now but he's still there in the front row. Somehow I feel this is going to come 'round to make Chris Rock the bad guy

To make matters stranger, you can see that Smith laughed at the joke after Rock made it. Jada instantly looked uncomfortable,though. When they cut back to Rock, Smith must have saw how his wife was hurt by the comment and turned to anger. Probably why Rock was caught so off guard because he'd just seen Smith laugh at the joke.

They should have had security throw his ass out of the building. At minimum.

Is this the actual 1st time Travolta has appeared at the Oscars not wearing a wig?

I'm already seeing comments about Rock somehow deserving it. The justification for physical violence is sickening and is the sort of thing Hollywood would be quick to condemn if it were violence against women or if this incident had been a white actor assaulting a black man. The reaction would've have been swift and very different I'm sure.

So Rock makes the joke, Smith laughs at the joke, then he sees his wife is pissed, so he has to do something to Rock to make up for his laughter.

Recall Rock made fun of Jada when he hosted the Oscars several years ago.
