The Oscars were a fairly remarkable event this year, but perhaps one of the odder moments was Aquaman actor Jason Momoa apparently burping into the microphone while presenting an award.
Momoa was handing the Best Sound statuette with his Dune co-star Josh Brolin when he seemed to burp right into the mic. “Did Jason Momoa just burp because I laughed a little too loudly,” said one Oscars viewer (opens in new tab).
“DID JASON MOMOA JUST BURP ON THE MIC WHILE PRESENTING AN AWARD AT THE OSCARS???!”(“???? WTF” asked another (opens in new tab).
They’re far from the only people to wonder. “Did I just now hear Jason Momoa burp?” asked another Tweeter (opens in new tab). “And the winner for Best Burp goes to… Jason Momoa,” proclaimed someone else (opens in new tab).
Dune won Best Sound, along with multiple other awards in the technical categories. The film was nominated for 10 awards in total. Momoa and Brolin presented the Best Sound Oscar ahead of the live broadcast, and the moment was then edited back in, along with multiple other categories – a decision that has proved controversial.
Other talking points from tonight’s Academy Awards have included the first-ever live performance of Encanto‘s smash-hit “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” and the movie also took home the gold for Best Animated Feature Film. Disney Pixar also debuted a new Lightyear trailer, introduced by Chris Evans himself.
Head to our Oscars 2022 winners list for the full rundown of the ceremony. The night’s biggest talking point was undoubtedly not the actual prize offerings, but Will Smith’s on-stage clash with Chris Rock.
