Chris Rock, while presenting the award for best documentary feature initiates a joke by throwing jabs to his fellow celebrities in the theatre
He made a joke that Denzel Washington as Macbeth had said “King Lear ain’t got nothing on me.” He also joked at Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, married with a 10-year-old child, for being nominated on the same night.
But, the comment that triggered Will Smith was when Rock looked over to Jada Pinkett-Smith and said, “Jada, I love you, G.I Jane 2, can’t wait to see it,” apparently referring to the actress’s bald head.
