The 94th Academy Awards witnessed the infamous moment that became known as the slap. Everyone was talking about it after Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock after he made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald head. At first, everyone thought it was all staged and everything was planned to make. But as it was revealed that nothing about the slap was planned or staged, people started talking about how someone can do such a thing on live television and a stage like the Academy Awards.

The reason Will Smith slapped Chris Rock was that he made a joke about his wife’s bald head. Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith’s wife, is suffering from a disease called alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss. The Men in Black actor lost his temper when Rock made a joke about his wife’s situation and slapped the comedian. But what about the time when he made fun of his wife?

Celebrity couples love to poke fun at each other. There are multiple examples in Hollywood, and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are also one of those Hollywood couples. The couple has been married for more than 20 years and has always supported each other. But the couple never misses an opportunity to make fun of the other person. It happened when Pinkett wore a Lord of the Rings-inspired costume.

The Red Table Talk host once wore an oversized knit cardigan, after which Will Smith documented his wife in the baggie clothes and shared the video on his Instagram. Jada Pinkett Smith was wearing a pink sock cap with an oversized brown knit cardigan and bootie slippers.

Will Smith shared the video with the caption, “She looks like she’s texting Bilbo Baggins about the party in Mordor. She like… “BOY, where is my RING?!?!,” teasing the collateral star of wearing a Lord of the Rings-inspired costume. The costume looked like the brown cloaks hobbits wore during their journey.

The Bad Boys star also mentions one hobbit who possessed the ring in the first place when the story opens. Bilbo Baggins was a character from 2012 The Hobbit, who finds a ring.

Will Academy Members Consider Voting for Will Smith’s Emancipation?

Will Smith won the Oscar for best actor for his role in King Richard. But the incident at the 2022 Oscars led the Crown actor to resign from the Academy. Not just that, the Academy also banned the actor from attending the awards ceremony for the next ten years.

However, getting banned from the Academy does not mean he cannot be nominated or win any awards. The King Richard star is still eligible to be nominated and win a title under the Academy. Will Smith’s upcoming movie is in the race for the Oscars. After the slapping incident, many believe that the Academy would not consider voting for the Focus actor.

However, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, that is not the case. The Hollywood Reporter surveyed the members of the organization, and most of them said that they would let their feelings get in the way of their work.

The report says that most members said they would watch Emancipation, but when it came to voting for Smith, many of them were not ready to forgive the actor yet.

They said the movie should not suffer a bad fate as Will Smith is not the sole person in it. Many people worked on Emancipation, and they should not be penalized for someone else’s actions. 

Emancipation will release in theatres on December 2, 2022, and will be available on Apple TV+ from December 9, 2022.
