The 94th Academy Awards were last night and there were many shocks that occurred throughout the night. First of all, the Oscars were a huge night for women, but their accomplishments were drowned out by violence.

Some awards go to "CODA" for best picture and Will Smith for best actor for his role in "King Richard", the story about Venus and Serena Williams.

So you think he would happy right?


Chris Rock was one of the presenters at the Oscar's ceremony. He made a joke that was muted across American television and resulted in Will Smith getting up out of his seat and smacking Chris Rock directly in the face.

Will Smith then began to scream at Chris Rock.

This encounter definitely made the environment a bit awkward for the rest of the night, but it seemed as if people were trying to ignore the situation.

Actors always love to make things interesting, especially at award shows but this interaction seemed slightly different.

It seemed as if Will Smith had some built-up rage against Chris Rock which is clearly just speculation.

Despite these events, Will Smith was awarded best actor for his first-ever Oscar win.

Unlike the grammy's the Oscars are usually less messy and more controlled, but this moment will go down in history as one of the craziest moments in Oscar and award show history.

Will Smith's wife Jada was in the audience and if you watched the award show, it seems as if Chris Rock made a joke about here which caused Will Smith to lash out on international television.
