The actor still cannot be forgiven for the scandalous trick.
The closer the release of the film “Emancipation” (will be released in December) with Will Smith in the lead role, the more passions flare up around him. According to experts, the picture at the end of 2022 film year may well be nominated for an Oscar in several categories at once. However, Smith does not face a reward. The scandal at the Academy Awards in March, when Will slapped the host of the event, Chris Rock, right on stage, will hurt one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood more than once.
An age of victory not to be seen?
Nevertheless, Will will be able to be nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor. Such an important clarification was made in the film academy, according to the New York Post. Yes, Smith was banned from appearing at the Oscars for the next 10 years, which was perceived by many as his exclusion from the number of nominees for the award – for the same period. Probably, under pressure from influential film companies, for which Will Smith is the “goose that lays golden eggs,” the Oscar jury clarified that he could still be nominated for the award. But no more. Nobody is going to vote for a scandalous actor, even if he plays the best role in his career on the screen.
New York Post film critic Johnny Oleksinski asked several members of the Oscar jury whether Will Smith could get an award if suddenly his performance in the movie Emancipation was great? Academy Award producer and Oscar jury member Lawrence David Foldes responded: “No, I will not vote for him under any circumstances. Will Smith showed blatant disrespect to members of the Academy, his colleagues and millions of viewers around the world who witnessed his antics. Even if you have 10 Oscars in your collection, you have no right to behave like that. I thought and continue to think that Will should be deprived of attention and awards from the Academy for life. ” Another jury member, who did not want to reveal his name, was short and categorical: “An award for Smith? Fuck him! It will be another slap in the face for all of us. It will cost.”
As for the film “Emancipation”, in which Will Smith will appear on the screen for the first time after the scandal at the Oscars, then its plot, as in the actor's victorious film “King Richard”, is also based on real events. The filmmakers send us to 1863, in the midst of the American Civil War between the northern states, which sought the abolition of slavery, against the southerners, who mercilessly exploited Africans. Will played a real historical character, runaway slave Gordon. He fled from a plantation in the south of the country to join the army of northerners and fight among the “buffalo” (as the “colored” regiments were called in the army of Abraham Lincoln) for the freedom of other blacks.
