Why Emmys 2022 Was Such A Fun Show
Will Smith was not invited to the Primetime Emmys at the Microsoft Theatre in Los
Angeles, but what’s an award show without mention of his now-famous slap?
Host Kenan Thompson didn’t make a direct reference to it, but he seemed to hint at it when he saw how Regina Hall, who hosted this year’s Oscars ceremony, was in the
audience and said, ‘Surprised she’s at another award show, girl, you brave.’
What really brought on the laughs though, was his dig at Leonardo DiCaprio’s apparent history of only dating girls under 25: ‘Zendaya just turned 26 last week. 26 is a weird age in Hollywood. I mean, you’re young enough to play a high school student, but you’re too
old to date Leonardo DiCaprio.’
Zendaya, of course, was among the big winners of the night.
