Last night’s Golden Globes were a mixed bag of milestones and forgettable moments that will more than likely be upstaged by the Oscars in a few weeks. But one big moment was Eddie Murphy receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for his longstanding career in comedy, cringeworthy cultural drag, and many other genres of note. And his acceptance speech was both inspirational and cautionary as he reminded everyone in the room that even now, you still need to keep Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s name out of your fuckin’ mouth if you want to last in the business as long as he has.

Will Smith Did A “Red Table Talk Takeover” And Discussed Dropping Weight After His Dad Bod Went Viral And Getting Unexpectedly Spat On By One Of His “Emancipation” Co-Stars

Most people who put the smackdown on someone on stage at a formal televised public event forever immortalized on the internet for millions and millions to gawk at for eternity might consider taking a beat (heyyo!) to fade into the background and self-reflect without a mistrustful audience. Will Smith isn’t “most people,” though, and recently he’s been trying to make Will Smith happen again by crying on The Daily Show and now doing a Red Table Talk takeover as he tries to snatch that Oscar for his upcoming film, Emancipation. And though Will isn’t even allowed to attend an Oscar ceremony for the next decade if he does snag a nomination, he talked about the extreme measures he took for the role, which included losing weight after a 2021 picture of his dad bod went viral and getting surprise-spat on by one of his co-stars.

Will Smith is still reminding us of how he greeted Chris Rock with a five-finger face kiss at the Oscars many moons ago. In the aftermath, he received disciplinary action from the Academy, including being banned from attending ceremonies for the next decade. Anyone else would sit down, shut up and enjoy being rich at home for ten years. But not Will. He has a new film coming out this Friday titled Emancipation, which he probably hopes will become the Roots of the new millennium. Not a chance Will, which he understands and admits people may not be ready to see him onscreen once again just yet.

October 5, 2022 / Posted by:

As the final echoes from the Slap A Middle-Aged Man segment at this year’s Oscars softly fades into Hollywood’s history books, it seems Will Smith may be getting his comeback sooner rather than later. Well, honestly, I never thought he would 100% be out of commission because he’s Will Smith. Now, AppleTV + is preparing the world for Will’s turn in Antoine Fuqua‘s upcoming  Emancipation. The movie was supposed to come out in 2023, but AppleTV+ recently announced that it will come out later this year, which means it qualifies for the 2023 Oscars. But let’s not forget, as a consequence of his actions, Will is still banned from attending the Oscars ceremony for the next decade. But he can still be nominated.
