Oscars 2022: Hollywood’s Biggest Night At Least For A Time Looked Like Pre-Pandemic, Then Will Smith Slapped Chris Rock

LOS ANGELES (KGO) — It was all smiles on the Oscars red carpet before Will Smith slapped Chris Rock after the comedian pranked Jada Pinkett Smith.

Hollywood’s biggest night, at least for a while, felt like the pre-pandemic one with all the glitz and glamour.

Then… things took a hell of a turn.

ABC7 News Anchor Kumasi Aaron was at the Oscars as the stars had their day on the red carpet where she saw the Smiths smiling and talking to fans as well as doing interviews.

Although she couldn’t catch Will or Jada, many stars stopped to chat with Kumasi before heading to the theater.

Watch the video above for a recap of the night and who dazzled on the red carpet.
