Jimmy Kimmel, a host of the 2023 Oscars, said he has a plan for an Oscars slap. This reminds us of the Oscars 2022 when Will Smith slapped the presenter Chris Rock.
Oscars 2023 host Jimmy Kimmel is ready for any controversy, including another potential Oscars slap. Recently, Jimmy Kimmel revealed that he had devised a contingency plan. It will secure him from a controversial situation like Will Smith’s infamous altercation at the Academy Awards.
He showed his concerns about how Smith took to the stage; hit presenter Chris in response to a joke aimed at his wife.
Although he didn’t disclose the specifics of his plans, Kimmel emphasized the importance of maintaining a secure environment at live events.
In an interview, he explained, “Well, I size them up, and if I’m bigger than they are, I beat the s–t out of them on television.”He then cracked a joke and said that if that person were to be Dwayne Johnson, “I run.”
During his upcoming third time as host of the Oscars, Jimmy Kimmel will likely reflect on the infamous envelope mix-up of a previous ceremony.
In his opening monologue of the following year, Kimmel cheerfully advised nominees and Oscars winners-to-be to use caution with their names. He explained, “When you hear your name called, don’t get up right away. Just give it a minute. We don’t want another thing.”
Jimmy Kimmel and Bill Kramer, CEO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, have taken proactive measures. This preparation will likely prohibit any potential mishaps, like Oscars slap, at future Oscar ceremonies.
No matter the previous incident “opened our minds to many things that can happen at the Oscars.”
Fans proclaimed last year’s Oscar as “Oscar Will Smith.” Let’s see what the world will recall in the coming Oscars.
