Colin Jost questioned the details of Will Smith's Oscars ban on "Saturday Night Live."
The "Weekend Update" host noted that Smith is still allowed to win awards and attend Oscars parties.
Smith's daughter Willow later performed on Saturday's show with Camila Cabello.
Colin Jost questioned the effectiveness of Will Smith's Oscar ban on this weekend's episode of "Saturday Night Live" before Smith's daughter Willow performed on the show.
Jost noted in the latest installment of "Weekend Update" that Smith, who was banned from Academy events for 10 years after slapping Chris Rock on stage at this year's Oscars, can still win awards and attend Oscars after-parties.
"He just doesn't have to attend the four-hour ceremony where someone is definitely gonna make fun of his wife again," he said.
Jost then shared a photo of himself and his "Weekend Update" co-anchor Michael Che hosting the 2018 Emmy Awards, joking that a real punishment for Smith would be to make him host next year's Oscars host.
"Because trust me, nothing will make you question your choices in life more than hosting an awards show," Jost said, to which Che responded, "I loved it."
Following the "Weekend Update" segment, Willow took the stage with Camila Cabello to perform their song "Psychofreak" off of Cabello's newly released album "Familia."
Representatives for Smith did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
The "SNL" cast also referenced the infamous slap throughout the April 2 show, with cast member Chris Redd playing Smith in a sketch about the moment from the point-of-view of a seat filler.
