Will Smith resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in a statement Friday, saying he would accept any further repercussions the Academy's board deems appropriate following his Oscar slap from Chris Rock host Chris Rock. American actor Will Smith appeared to choose to skip the latter today as he abruptly and unexpectedly announced his retirement from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences less than a week after slapping comedian Chris Rock on stage at the 94th Academy Awards. . Will Smith announced tonight that he will be stepping down as a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences days after Chris Rock's slap on the Oscars stage dominated coverage and talk at the ceremony.

 

The former announced his resignation just days after Hollywood actor Will Smith was split on the internet for slamming comedian Chris Rock over a joke he told at the Oscars. Will Smith has resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the institution that awards the Oscars, after beating Chris Rock on Sunday's Oscars TV show. Following Sunday's Oscars ceremony, the Academy released a statement claiming that Will Smith's "abusive or threatening behavior" at the event violated the Oscars' code of conduct. Earlier this week, Academy President David Rubin and CEO Don Hudson met with Smith, who faces suspension, expulsion or other action, to discuss Sunday's Oscars telecast.

 

His resignation came about 12 hours after Will Packer, lead producer of the Oscars TV show, first spoke publicly about the episode. David Rubin, president of the Academy Film Academy, said on Friday that the group has accepted Smith's resignation but will continue with disciplinary proceedings that could result in new sanctions. The Academy accepted the resignation, but noted that in any case it would continue disciplinary procedures. Given Smith's voluntary withdrawal from the organization, the Academy's suspension or expulsion actions discussed above will no longer matter.

The question now is whether this disciplinary action by AMPAS — the governing body responsible for the Academy Awards — will include the annulment of Smith's Best Actor Oscar, which he won on Sunday for his role as King Richard, and that it means. involvement in the organization. Hollywood actor Will Smith will be able to keep his Best Actor award, and his resignation only means he won't be able to vote for the Academy Award. Now that he has retired, Mr. Smith will no longer have access to screenings and academy events. The resignation won't stop Smith from attending future Oscars either, meaning Smith could return in 2023 to present Best Actress.

 

Smith will retain his Oscar for Best Actor, which he won for King Richard after hitting The Rock. Allowing Will Smith to re-enroll in the Academy would most likely just be an action taken at a time when the Chris Rock controversy has subsided. As for another discipline that the Academy might leave out, chances are they won't invite Will Smith to the ceremony or present the Best Actress award at the Oscars in the coming years, as is usually the case for the Best Actor of the Year winner.
