The Oscars 2023 finally took place on Sunday with comedian Jimmy Kimmel hosting the show after the infamous Will Smith and Chris Rock slap gate. The Oscars 2023 started with Jimmy Kimmel's 'long' monologue in which he roasted almost every nominated member. Not only this, Jimmy roasted the Academy Awards and Will Smith for the infamous late year's slap gate. However, the audience erupted in laughter when a group of dancers escorted the comedian from the stage in Naatu Naatu style. For the unversed, Naatu Naatu is a song from the Indian film RRR and has been nominated in the best original song category in Oscars 2023. Kimmel brought Naatu Naatu into his monologue and the audience erupted in joy.

Not only Kimmel roasted Academy Awards but also Hollywood actor Will Smith for losing his calm and slapping the host on stage. Kimmel said, ""We want you to have fun, feel safe and, most importantly, we want me feel safe,” Kimmel told the audience.. “So, we have strict policies in pace. If anyone in this theater commits an act of violence at any point during the show, you will be awarded the Oscar for best actor and permitted to give a 19-minute long speech. But seriously, the academy has a crisis team in place. If anything unpredictable or violent happens during the show, sit there and do absolutely nothing. Maybe even give the assailant a hug.”

“And if any of you get mad at a joke and decide you want to get jiggy with it — it’s not going to be easy,” Kimmel concluded, then shouting out fighters in the audience like Michael B. Jordan’s Creed and Michelle Yeoh.
