5. King Charles’ leaky pen incident
Starting out on the list we have King Charles, whose pen had leaked during a signing of a visitors’ book in Northern Ireland.

4. Olivia Wilde being given custody papers on stage
Next up is the rather memorable moment when Olivia Wilde gets served custody papers on behalf of her ex partner, Jason Sudeikis. While Wilde was on stage talking about her new film, “Don’t Worry Darling,” a process server walks to the stage to give Wilde the custody papers.
After realizing what it was, she did a perfect job playing off what she just received. Wilde then continued her speech flawlessly and even cracked a few jokes as well.

3. Bill Clinton’s shoutout at The Game Awards
A child snuck up on stage at The Game Awards to nominate former U.S. President Bill Clinton for the Game of the Year award. This took place just after the real Game of the Year, “Elden Ring” was announced. While the developers were walking up to the stage, the mischievous child joined their group without anyone noticing.
The kid was polite enough to wait for the developers to finish giving their award speech, which he then said that he wanted to nominate the award to Clinton. Security can be seen escorting the kid offstage as the audience claps at the nomination.
The full clip of the kid sneaking up on stage alongside the developers can be seen below:
2. The Depp v. Heard defamation trial
The court case took place after Johnny Depp filed complaints against his former wife, Amber Heard. Heard counterclaimed, saying that Depp also defamed her. An interesting part of this case is that the trial was live streamed, which allowed viewers on social media to witness the whole ordeal.
The case itself involves many back-and-forths between Depp, Depp’s lawyers, and Heard’s lawyers. Laughter often breaks out during the proceedings as many humorous remarks are stated.

1. Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards
Last up is one of the most legendary moments in all of the Academy Awards’ history, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock. The slap happened after Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
Some of the audience members groaned, while Smith took to stage to deliver the slap. Smith then bellowed at Rock to keep his wife’s name out of his mouth, which Rock awkwardly agreed to. In the aftermath, Smith received heavy criticism on social media for his outburst.
