Jim Carrey Slams ‘Spineless’ Oscars Audience for Will Smith Standing Ovation
Jim Carrey is criticizing Hollywood for giving Will Smith a standing ovation when it was announced at the Oscars that he won best actor for “King Richard.” Smith’s Oscar victory occurred several minutes after he slapped Chris Rock. “I was sickened,” Carrey told CBS’ Gayle King. “I was sickened by the standing ovation. Hollywood is just spineless en masse and it really felt like this is a really clear indication that we aren’t the cool club anymore.”
Carrey said Smith “should’ve been” escorted out of the Oscars ceremony after he slapped Rock. King noted that Chris Rock declined to file a police report about the incident, but Carrey claimed that was only because the comedian “didn’t want the hassle.”
Carrey concluded, “[The slap] came out of nowhere because Will has something going on inside him that’s frustrated. I wish him the best. I have nothing against Will Smith. He’s done great things, but that was not a good moment. It cast a shadow over everyone’s shining moment last night…It was a selfish moment.”
Paul Rudd Got Conan O’Brien On An Old But Awesome Joke
Rudd, who’s currently in post-production on Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania, didn’t just show up for a return appearance on Conan’s podcast without something to promote. As it turns out, he’s been working on a new Audible show. Rudd spent a full two minutes setting up this new series, before innocently mentioning that, hey, he’s brought a clip. “We’ve recorded it,” Rudd notes “If you want to play a little bit of it…” “Sure!” said Conan O’Brien,
There is nothing quite like hearing the immediate disappointment and shock in Conan O’Brien’s voice as the clip starts playing, and he realizes that Paul Rudd had gotten him with the old Mac And Me clip. Of a kid rolling down a hill in a wheelchair. After 25 years! He is still getting him.
“Oh for Christ’s sake!” O’Brien yelled, laughing. “Why? WHY?! You can’t do that on a podcast! It’s a visual joke.” “I know!” Rudd responds cheerfully. “It’s an audio medium!” “I know, would it work that way? I dunno!” Rudd responds, with joy. Click here to hear the chaos.

The Beast roller coaster at Kings Island will break its own world record in 2022
The Beast has held the record for the World’s Longest Wooden Roller Coaster for more than 40 years. Now, thanks to offseason track work and reprofiling of The Beast’s iconic first drop, that will change.
When the coaster opens in May it will be two feet longer, extending its track length from 7,359 to 7,361 ft.
The 43-year-old wooden roller coaster received more than 2,000 ft. of replacement track in the park’s offseason and a steeper first drop that has cemented its spot in the record book as the reigning champion for the world’s longest wooden roller coaster.
Kings Island opens to pass holders on April 15, and to everyone on April 16.

‘Huge surprise: another Baldwinito is coming this fall,’ Hilaria announced on social media. The mom of six noted she thought her family was complete, but the couple are “beyond happy with this surprise.” This will be Alec’s 8th child. “Our new baby is a very bright spot in our lives. A blessing and a gift during such uncertain times.” In a video on Instagram, the former yoga instructor, 38, and the 63-year-old actor told their children — Carmen, 8, Rafael, 6, Leonardo, 5, Romeo, 3, Eduardo, 18 months, and Lucia, 12 months — the baby news.
Hilaria, who has taken a hiatus from social media amidst the ongoing investigation into the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins after a prop gun was fired by Baldwin on the set of the movie “Rust” in 2021, acknowledged that she missed her Instagram audience. “I’ve missed you during my break from social media … I’m back and looking forward to continuing with you this wild journey that we call ‘life.’ Our love to you and your loved ones,” she wrote.

Eric Church Cancels Concert To Attend North Carolina vs. Duke Final Four Game And Fans Are Livid
Church officially canceled the show telling his fans that he and his family simply can’t miss the historic game between Duke and UNC.
“This Saturday, my family and I are going to stand together to cheer on the Tar Heels as the team has made it to the Final Four,” He went on to say: “This is also the most selfish thing I’ve ever asked the Choir [the nickname of his fanbase] to do: to give up your Saturday night plans with us so that I can have this moment with my family and sports community,”
Fans will of course receive a full refund for their tickets, but despite that and Church at least being honest in his reasoning, plenty of fans are furious.
MLB Is Moving Second Base
Major League Baseball correcting a mistake that was made 135 years ago in 1887. They’re moving it in towards home plate, making it about 13.5 inches closer to first base and third base.
If you look at where first base and third base are located? They’re nestled into their natural corners on each side of the diamond. But now check out second base. It’s positioned aesthetically in the middle of the infield. Just one problem. It’s not nestled into its own natural corner of the diamond. So they will move it in to make it an even 87 feet between all bases
This year every level of the minor leagues will be doing this in the second half of the season, and probably in the major leagues come 2023.
