Oscars 2022 – 4 events that happened for the first time in the history of Oscars

The Oscars 2022 had its quota of snubs, surprises, big speeches. Meaning those things that are seen in almost every edition of the Oscars. But this time there were some such incidents in the Oscars, which happened for the first time. Now I will tell you about them.

 

#1. First Deaf Actor to win Supporting Actor

 

Released on Apple TV Plus, Koda won three Academy Awards. Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor. Troy Cotser, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Coda, is the first Deaf actor to win an Oscar in this category. He is the second Deaf actor to win an Oscar in all other categories. Earlier in 1987, Marlie Matlin won the Oscar for Best Leading Actress for ‘Children of a Lesser God’. Marley is a deaf actor who played Troy’s wife in ‘Koda’.

#2. First female filmmaker to be nominated again

In the 94-year history of the Academy Awards, only three women have won the Best Director category. Katherine Bigelow in 2010, Chloe Zao in 2021, and now Jane Campion in 2022. However, Katherine and Chloe have received nominations only once each in the category of Best Director. At the same time, Jane got a nomination in this category in 1994. That year, Steven Spielberg won the Oscar for Best Director for Schindler’s List. Now in 2022, Jane Campion again got a nomination in the category of Best Director, and this time she won the award. New Zealand’s Jane Campion is the first female filmmaker to be nominated twice in the Best Director category.

#3. The first queer Afro Latina actress to win an Oscar

Judi Dench, Jesse Buckley, Kirsten Dunst, Anjenu Ellis and Ariana de Boas were nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category at this year’s Oscars. Ariana, nominated for ‘West Side Story’, is the first Afro-Latina openly queer actress to be nominated for an Oscar. Shortly after the start of the live telecast of the ceremony, she became the first Afro Latina openly queer actress to win an Oscar in the acting category. He said in his acceptance speech,

You see an openly queer woman of color, an Afro Latina who finds her courage and life through art. And I think today we have gathered to celebrate this. If anyone has ever questioned your identity, I promise you – there is a place for us in this world too.

 

#4. Actor slapped on stage

The Oscars are over. But who won how many awards, it doesn’t matter much to the people. Everyone is searching what happened between Will Smith and Chris Rock. Chris Rock made a joke on Will Smith’s wife. Will turned off, went on stage and slapped Chris. Chris mocked Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, saying that he was looking forward to seeing Jada in GI Jane 2.

Actually Jada has a disease called alopecia, due to which the hair of her head is falling. That’s why Chris Rock mentioned the film GI Jane. Jordan O. played the role of Demi Moore in this film. Neil’s character is bald. Chris made fun of Jada’s illness and talked about seeing him in GI Jane 2. Will Smith got angry on this matter, slapped him. After coming to his seat, he shouted and told Chris not to take his wife’s name from his mouth. This was the first time in the history of the Oscars that an actor had committed violence on stage.
