Kardashian wasn't at the show because she's in Italy for her sister Kourtney Kardashian's wedding. "I never imagined this would be my life," he said, adding when he first started at 20 years old he was "just a skinny kid and no one knew what race I was." But he says now everyone knows he’s White because he "became hugely successful while barely showing up to work." FILE - Pete Davidson attends The 2022 Met Gala Celebrating "In America: An Anthology of Fashion" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 02, 2022 in New York City.  (Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for The Met Museum/Vogue)In a reference to Will Smith slapping "SNL" alum Chris Rock, Davidson self-deprecatingly joked that on one hand, he doesn’t condone audience members jumping onstage to hit comedians but "on the other it’s how I know all my shows will be sold out."The comedian said he would miss "SNL" creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels who he said gives him the best advice, including during his audition for the show."He looked me right in the eye and said 'I don't know, I don't think you're right for this show, so let's screw this up together,' " Davidson said.

Before Will Smith, who else was banned from the Oscars?
decision was announced last week after Smith pre-emptively resigned from the academy during the run-up to the meeting, calling his actions "shocking, painful, and inexcusable.""I accept and respect the Academy’s decision," Smith said in the aftermath.Meanwhile, talk of whether Smith should have to return the Best Actor Oscar he won for "King Richard" is ongoing, but only one Oscar has ever been revoked in the award’s 94-year history. In 1969, the Oscar for the documentary "Young Americans" was rescinded because it was deemed to be ineligible for that year. Smith will likely be keeping the Oscar he won, and will remain eligible to be nominated for and win more of them in the 10-year period he’s banned from the show, though he wouldn’t be able to show up to accept the award — virtually or in person.Will Smith accepts the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for "King Richard" during the show at the 94th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood on Sunday, March 27, 2022.
