Well, Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel came out swinging when he opened the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Host Didn’t pull a punch — uh, slap — he I spoke to a giant elephant in this year’s Oscar room.

The elephant was a show-stopping moment at last year’s ceremony when “King Richard” star and lead actor Will Smith slapped presenter Chris Rock.

“I want you to feel safe, and most importantly, I want you to feel safe,” Kimmel said in a soliloquy. If someone commits a violent act, they are awarded an Oscar for Best Actor and are allowed to give a 19-minute speech.”

Kimmel mentioned a crisis management team set up by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to deal with situations like slaps, but quickly downplayed its purpose.

“If something unpredictable or violent happens during the ceremony, just like last year, don’t do anything. Just sit there and do absolutely nothing. Even give the perpetrator a hug.” There may be.

“If someone gets offended by a joke and decides to come here and be Ziggy, it’s not easy,” Kimmel said of Smith’s 1997 hit “Gettin’ Ziggy Wit.” · It’s mentioned, and the names of the formidable attendees who would “must get through first” who called for a strike.

Defensive hosts included Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” star Michelle Yeoh, Pedro Pascal’s “The Mandalorian,” Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man, Steven Spielberg’s “Fableman,” Kimmel’s “right hand” Guillermo Rodriguez.

“I know. She’s cute, but if you wave her hand, that babe will beat up Lydia Tarr, right?” he added. “No nonsense tonight. No time for practical jokes. This is a celebration for everyone here.”

Incidentally, the three-time Oscar host is no stranger to on-air mishaps. He hosted his 2017 awards ceremony, but a mix-up of envelopes led to the erroneous announcement that “La La Land” won Best Picture instead of “Moonlight.” I was. “I knew I was going to ruin this show, I really did,” the host quipped at the time, but returned to host the next year before the ceremony went through a three-year host drought. .

He also made headlines at last September’s Emmy Awards when he played dead for a misguided gag in the middle of Quinta Branson’s acceptance speech. I apologized more formally to the star and creator on the late night show.

For the aftermath from the slap heard around the world, Smith won an Academy Award for Best Actor less than an hour after hitting The Rock. Although he kept his Oscar and apologized repeatedly, the “Ali” and “Pursuit of Happiness” stars were subsequently banned from the Academy Awards and related events for ten years. explains why she won’t be attending the Best Actress Awards tonight or announcing the Oscars.)

Meanwhile, Rock was initially fairly quiet about the incident, only briefly mentioning it during a stand-up routine last year. made a statement — Pinkett Smith’s home town — in the Netflix comedy special Selective Outrage.

Elsewhere in the monologue, Kimmel threw in Rihanna’s sons, “Till” and “The Woman King,” and mentioned the failure of the Oscar envelope.
