As you probably already know it, Will Smith exploded yesterday during the presentation of the Óscar awards, attacking Chris Rock in a physical form, after the comedian made a series of jokes about the condition of Jada Pinkett Smith, wife of the now award-winning Hollywood actor. In this way, has been revealed that Smith could well lose his Óscar for best actor for the actions committed of him.
According to the New York Post sources, the Academy of Arts and the Cinematographic Sciences would be considering withdrawing their Óscar for their role in king Richard to Will Smith, since his behavior during the latest ceremony does not attach to The guidelines that were established since 2017 , this after all cases of abuse that were announced. In response to this event, this was what this organization said:
“The Academy does not approve violence in any way.
Tonight we are delighted to celebrate the winners of the 94th edition of the Academy Awards, which deserve this moment of recognition on the part of their companions and lovers of cinema around the world. “
In its code of conduct, is emphasized the importance of “defending the values of the academy” , such as inclusion, foster supporting environments and “respect for human dignity”. Smith’s attitude was not liked from some of those present that night. Judd Apatow, film director, pointed out that the actor’s behavior was not the right one in a tweet, which has been eliminated:
“I could have killed him. That is pure rage and out of control violence. They have heard a million jokes about them in the last three decades. They are not novices in the world of Hollywood and comedy. He lost his head. “
At the moment there is no official response from the Academy about the future of the Will Smith Award. We only have to wait and see what will happen to the actor in the future. The truth is that this attitude has caused a series of comments of all kinds, from messages that support it, until those who severely criticize this behavior and Chris Rock.

Both Will Smith and Chris Rock carried out actions that they should not have d1. However, if the Academy withdraw your Óscar to Smith, this would be very hypocritical, especially considering that Harvey Weinstein, the reason why a code of conduct was established in 2017, was not punished in this way by this organization.
