The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors announced Friday, April 8, 2022 that Will Smith is banned from attending any Academy event or program, including the Oscars, for 10 years, following the slap

Announcement of the decision
“The Board has decided, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith shall not be permitted to attend any Academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Academy Awards,” according to a letter from the academy, signed by Academy President David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson.

The Academy’s Board of Governors was originally scheduled to meet on April 18, 2022 to explore disciplinary proceedings against Smith for what they described in a March 30, 2022 statement as “violations of the Academy’s Standards of Conduct, including inappropriate physical contact, abusive or threatening behavior, and compromising the integrity of the Academy.”
