There were also some good jokes at the 2022 Oscars ceremony, not only controversial ones. Moreover, they were quite good-natured. The ceremony hosts – Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Regina Hall – tried to make fun of every nominee.
The best one arguably belongs to Syke. "I watched that movie three times and I'm halfway through it," she said about Best Picture nominee 'The Power of the Dog'.
'Don't Look Up' got a sly remark from Schumer on Leonardo DiCaprio's environmental work: “He’s done so much to fight climate change and leave behind a cleaner, greener planet for his girlfriends”.
Schumer also made fun of 'Being the Ricardos': "If you're Aaron Sorkin, how do you make a movie about the most iconic female comedian and not one laugh, it's brilliant! It's like making a biopic about Michael Jordan and just showing the bus trips between games".
The hosts also made fun of 'King Richard', pointing out that women's stories have been ignored, so it's good that there's a movie about Venus and Serena William's... dad. This time Will Smith laughed.
