According to reports, Smith could lose his Oscars trophy or be barred from attending Oscar-related events for a period of time. As part of his apology tour in the aftermath of the incident, the actor resigned from the Academy after it was reported that the organization was conducting its own investigation into the events.

According to multiple headline , Will Smith has been barred from attending the Oscars for the next ten years. The punishment for slapping Chris Rock comes from the AMPAS Board of Governors, and Smith is barred from attending any and all Academy Awards-related events, in person or virtually.

The Board had planned to meet on April 18th to discuss a punishment, but they moved it up to today to act more quickly. Will Smith's suspension from the Academy Awards will be lifted on April8, 2032.

Will Smith is now the sixth person in history to be barred from attending the Oscars. Previously barred were producer Harvey Weinstein, comic Bill Cosby, director Roman Polanski, and cinematographer Adam Kimmel. In each of those cases, the bans were indefinite and the consequence of sexual assault. Actor Carmine Caridi was also kicked out for stealing screeners. Will Smith's penalty for slapping puts him in the company of some genuinely heinous people.

The Academy's decision to ban Will Smith for the next ten years does not exclude him from being nominated for or winning more awards. Will Smith's career is currently in jeopardy Following the Chris Rock slap, Hollywood rushed fast to put numerous projects featuring Will Smith on hold, but several projects have already wrapped production.

For example, after winning Best Picture for CODA, his slave drama Emancipation, directed by Antoine Fuqua, is set to be released in 2022 and might be a possible award winning chance for Apple TV+. Will Smith might still be nominated and perhaps win an Oscar for his performance, but he will be unable to attend the ceremony and receive the prize in such a case.
