The Oscars and Emmys are both important awards shows in Hollywood. They recognize the best actors, directors, writers, and producers in film and television. But there’s one very famous actor who is not welcome at any of these award shows: Will Smith.
On March 27, 2022, Will Smith, the King Richard star, slapped comedian Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. This resulted in consequences that will prevent him from attending any award show for the next ten years.
How the Academy Reacted to His Actions
The Academy was not happy with Will Smith’s outburst and they made it clear that he is not welcome at any of their award shows for the next ten years. The decision was made by the Academy’s Board of Governors, which is made up of Hollywood’s biggest names. They voted unanimously to ban Will Smith from all future award shows.
The Reason for the Anger Management
It is believed that Will Smith’s anger management issues are the reason why he was banned from the Oscars. He has a history of losing his temper and getting into fights, both on and off camera.
In 2009, he got into a physical altercation with a photographer who was trying to take pictures of his family. The photographer claimed that Smith punched him in the face and broke his camera. Smith was later arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault.
Just two years ago, he got into a fight with another actor, Joel Kinnaman, on the set of their movie Suicide Squad. The two men had to be separated by security.
And in 2016, he got into a verbal argument with a reporter who was asking him about his new movie Collateral Beauty. The reporter claimed that Smith called him a ” motherf**ker” and told him to “go f**k himself.”
Anger Management Support
Fortunately, there are things that can be done to help people with anger management issues. There are many anger management programs available, both online and in-person. There are also supplements that can be taken to support calmness and relaxation.
Impact on His Career
The ban from the Oscars will undoubtedly have a negative impact on Will Smith’s career. He is one of the most successful actors in Hollywood and has been nominated for several Academy Awards. However, now that he is banned, he will not be able to attend any future award shows and receive recognition for his work.
Will Smith is a talented actor, but his anger management issues have caused him to be banned from the Oscars for the next ten years. This will undoubtedly have a negative impact on his career. However, there are things that can be done to help people with anger management issues, so there is still hope for Smith.
