Ahead of the Oscars in 2023, host Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at Will Smith’s infamous incident by pointing out the carpet’s new colour.

The red carpet is the symbol of any celebrity-studded event in show business, but the Oscars 2023 have other plans. For the first time, the Academy Awards will use a champagne-colored carpet, breaking with decades of tradition. While the reason for the carpet’s change in colour is being debated, Jimmy Kimmel has a rather amusing explanation involving Will Smith’s infamous incident.

One of the most memorable moments from the Oscars 2022 was Smith slapping comedian Chris Rock in the face after the latter made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s baldness. Despite the fact that the infamous incident occurred a year ago, discussions and jokes about it have never stopped.

The Oscars 2023 preparations are currently underway, and host Jimmy Kimmel is keeping everyone up to date. The upcoming Oscars ceremony will be the host’s third. In a recent video, Kimmel stood outside the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, discussing the decision to change the carpet’s colour. Kimmel discussed the ongoing debate over whether there will be any trouble at the Oscars this year, and expressed his hope that there will be none.

He further took a dig at Will Smith’s slap gate incident and joked the champagne colour signifies the award show will not have any bloodshed. Jimmy Kimmel said, “But if there is, I think the decision to go with a champagne carpet rather than a red carpet shows how confident we are that no blood will be shed.” He added how such a thing can only happen in Hollywood and said, “I’ve never really done play-by-play for carpeting before.”

While there are several theories about the Oscars 2023 carpet’s colour change, it appears to be a creative change. Lisa Love and Met Gala creative director Raul Avila advised on the decision and ensured that the carpet covered the entire floor. Furthermore, Love stated that they wanted to change the show from a day event to a night event.
