Fashion, jokes, historic wins and flaring tempers at the 2022 Oscars

From Ariana DeBose's historic win to perhaps the highest and lowest points of Will Smith's career intersecting within the span of minutes, the Oscars, having been sidelined (#OscarsSoWhite trended on social media a few years back during the broadcast), were very suddenly relevant again.
