Why hasn’t Will Smith engraved his name on the Oscar statuette yet?

Just because Will Smith was banned from Academy events for the next 10 years following the slap scandal in 2022 doesn’t mean he can’t carve his nameplate onto his Oscar trophy. According to the latest information, a year after Will Smith won the Best Actor award at the Oscars 2022, he still has not been carved.

Speaking on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, Janet Yang, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, said Smith should have added a nametag to her Oscar statuette at the Governors Ball after the ceremony. award in 2022.

Despite being an unwelcome person, Yang said Will Smith is always welcome to carve his trophy.

“He won an Oscar,” she said. “He should have his name engraved on it. I don’t know if he should come in person. But yes, we can arrange.”

Recalling the Oscar slap incident, Yang said: “Really, we were dumbfounded.”

“Like everyone else, at first when Will came on stage, we thought, ‘Oh, this is funny. He would pretend to slap Chris and then Chris would act stunned.” And then it was like, “Okay, that’s it” – – She continued – “And then he came back his seat and then he started screaming – of course, that’s when everyone said, ‘Oh my God, this is real’.

According to Yang, a lot of jokes about Will Smith’s slap were included in this year’s awards ceremony script, but then the crew decided to remove most of them.
