Nearly one 12 months in the past at the moment, a slap was heard all over the world when Will Smith stormed onto the Oscars stage to hit Chris Rock for making a joke at his spouse’s expense. And the Academy actually would not need that to occur once more in case you ask Marcello Hernandez and Heidi Gardner—who star as hosts of Entry Hollywood‘s Oscars Crimson Carpet Present throughout final night time’s Saturday Night time Dwell sketch.
Gardner — who performed “Maria Menounos or Equipment Hoover” — and Hernandez — who performed Mario Lopez — mentioned they had been excited to have been “standing exterior the Dolby Theatre for nearly 153 hours.”

After referencing Smith’s slap, Gardner mentioned that “this 12 months, to verify nothing loopy occurs, the Academy employed a brand new head of safety: notoriously calm and sane particular person, Mike Tyson.”
Tyson, performed brilliantly by Kenan Thompson, joked that he slipped an Apple AirTag into Smith’s pocket to control him and that this 12 months “all of the nominees have been given tasers, all of the seat fillers have been given weapons, and Jimmy Kimmel has been given a flamethrower.”
The skit went on to incorporate moments from Sarah Sherman as Michelle Williams’ Jewish appearing coach, Mikey Day as Colin Farrell, Molly Kearney as Brendan Gleeson, and Bowen Yang as George Santos as Tom Cruise.
