Janet Yang, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has disclosed that Will Smith is welcome to have his name engraved on his Best Actor Oscar.
Speaking on the latest episode of the Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, Yang noted that Smith, 54, “earned the Oscar,” which he won last year for his performance in King Richard.
Yang said despite the fallout after Smith slapped Chris Rock in the face during the 94th ceremony on stage, Smith “should have his name engraved on” the trophy.
“I don’t know if he should personally come. But yeah, we can arrange”.
