The 2022 Oscars

The 2022 Oscars

Melanie Roloff

This year’s Oscars Awards were held on March 27 in Hollywood to celebrate actors and their talents. 

Some winners from this year include “Cruela” for best costume design, Will Smith for best actor for his role in “King Richard”, Jessica Chastain as best actress for her role in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” and “Encanto” for best animated film. There were many good nominees and familiar faces seen at the show, including “Dune” actors Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya.

Interviewee Kate Powell’s opinions on how the awards went are that she thinks Ariana DeBose from “West Side Story” deserved her award and that she “rocked the pan suit” and that it was a very “drama ridden night.” 

The show took an unexpected turn when comedian Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Smith,  Will Smith’s wife, and Will Smith went up on stage and slapped Rock. Smith later apologized. 

Overall, I think this year’s Oscars were pretty cool and fun to watch and I am excited to see who wins next year.
