Chris Rock admits in stand-up that he turned down the invitation to host the Oscars event in 2023

After this year’s Oscars “slapgate,” comedian Chris Rock reportedly turned down the chance to host the ceremony the next year. On Sunday, he made the revelation during a stand-up comedy performance.

For making a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith earlier this year during the Oscars ceremony, actor Will Smith smacked comedian Chris Rock on stage. Since then, Will has apologised twice for the incident, but it appears that Chris is still not ready to let it all go. After the ban was put in place, Will was prohibited from attending the ceremony or any Academy events for the following ten years.

According to Arizona Republic, Chris compared going back to the Oscars to going back to the site of a crime on Sunday during a comedy set at the Arizona Financial Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. The comedian compared the hosting invitation to asking the late Nicole Brown Simpson “to go back to the restaurant” where her mother had left a pair of glasses the night of her death while making a reference to the 1995 murder trial of O.J. Simpson.

Regarding Will, he added, “He is larger than I am. Nevada’s government would not permit a fight between Will Smith and me.” Following the slapping incident, Chris declined to participate in a Super Bowl commercial in addition to the Oscars.

Chris Rock made a joke about Jada’s bald head without knowing that she had a medical problem, and Will Smith smacked him for it. Keep my wife’s name out of your fu**ing mouth, Will said as he approached the stage and hit Chris across the face. Will won Best Actor at the 94th Academy Awards shortly after the incident.

Will, however, apologised to Chris Rock and Academy on his social Facebook account later that evening. “Chris, I want to publicly apologise to you. I made a mistake and stepped out of line. I feel ashamed because they did not reflect the kind of man I aspire to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and peace,” Will wrote on Instagram. Recently, he shared another apology video for Chris.

Cate Blanchett’s response to her character in Tár being dubbed a “lesbian icon” Yes, that’s cool. I’ll take it.

The Golden Globe-winning actress Cate Blanchett responded to the praise she received for her performance in Todd Field’s Tár, for which she won Best Actress in a Motion Picture for the fourth time (Drama). Cate plays a gay conductor named Lydia Tár in the movie, whose career takes a sharp turn for the worse after a number of accusations are made public. When some gay fans referred to her as a “lesbian icon,” Cate Blanchett responded.

In the drama Tár, the Academy Award-winning actor, who is anticipated to receive her seventh Oscar nomination, portrays an EGOT-winning conductor who is wed to a female violinist (played by Nina Hoss). Cate has been quite busy promoting Tár since she missed the 2023 Golden Globes event to go to the movie’s London premiere. She emphasised that director Todd Field did not place any special attention on Lydia’s same-sex relationship and that Lydia’s status as a female conductor has no bearing on the film’s significance. According to the actor, the movie’s focus is on her power rather than her gender and sexual orientation.
