Will Smith’s ‘Possible Sanctions’ For Oscars Slap To Be Discussed By Academy 10 Days Early

Will Smith may be hearing back about potential sanctions for his Oscars altercation sooner than expected. The Academy Board of Governors will now be meeting this Friday morning to discuss any ramifications for the “King Richard” star following his actions onstage. The Academy had originally scheduled to meet on April 18. In a letter to the board obtained by NBC News, Academy president David Rubin explained that the meeting was pushed up after Will resigned from the Academy this past Friday.
