A few days ago, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced a penalty for Will Smith: From April 8, Will Smith will be banned from participating in all Oscar-related activities for ten years. Will Smith said he accepts the penalty.
Previously, Will Smith assaulted guest Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars.
Since then, Will Smith has publicly apologized more than once, and has resigned from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and is no longer eligible to vote for the Oscars.
It is reported that Will Smith is still eligible to nominate and win Oscars despite being unable to attend Oscar-related events, including awards shows, for ten years.
