The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hoped moviegoers would be wowed by the surprises at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony. But they probably didn’t bet on a physical confrontation between two superstars.

The academy hoped moviegoers would unite and spark a ratings boost for the 94th Academy Awards. Late in the ceremony, however, comedian Chris Rock told a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith’s hair, prompting her partner, Will Smith, to take the stage and punch Rock as he was about to to present the award for best documentary. ABC cut the mics just as the two began yelling at each other, but uncensored international streams picked up the two stars shouting profanity at each other.

Moments later, Smith won the Best Actor Oscar and apologized to the academy and his fellow nominees. “Love will make you do crazy things,” he said.

The showdown was a shocking turn in another otherwise subdued show that featured largely predictable yet historic outcomes. With the diversity of this year’s Oscar nominees, audiences saw a number of milestones set.

  • “CODA” was the first film produced by a streaming service to win the Best Picture award. He won three in total.
  • Ariana DeBose has become the first black queer woman to win an acting award, winning Best Supporting Actress for “West Side Story.”
  • Troy Kotsur of ‘CODA’ has become the first deaf man to win an Oscar for his acting role.

“Dune” won the most awards, with six.

The trio of Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes took on hosting duties at Sunday’s ceremony at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. For the past three years, the show has not had a host.
