Will Smith Resigned from being a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood on the afternoon of Friday, April 1, but all was not there.
The Academy’s Board of Governors decided to start a meeting – already scheduled after the scandal – and will do so this Friday, April 8. There, they will discuss the “action and consequences” that will follow after Will Smith is slapped. Chris Rock During the 94th delivery of Oscar,
Yes, the board of governors meeting was originally scheduled for Monday, April 18, ten days later, but in a letter signed by David Rubin—the academy’s president—accessed by Variety, it’s clarified that Zoom’s The Governors changed date.

“I am convening a board meeting for this Friday morning, April 8, at 9:00 a.m. PST, to address potential sanctions for Will Smith. The Oscars airs March 27,” the letter begins.
“Following the resignation of Mr. Smith from his membership in the Academy on Friday, April 1, there is no longer any possibility of suspension or expulsion, and the legally set timetable no longer applies. It is in the best interest of all involved. That it be handled in a timely manner,” Rubin continues.
Rubin refers to the date change as “in accordance with California law and our standards of conduct” because our agenda included the possible suspension or removal of Mr. Smith from membership.
Such a long letter to the members of the Board of Governors is as follows:
“Dear Fellow Governors” “I am calling a board meeting this Friday morning, April 8th at 9:00 a.m. (Pacific Time) to address potential sanctions in response to Will Smith on April 18th. Instead of the pre-scheduled meeting, action during the Oscars telecast on March 27.”

“The date of April 18 was set in accordance with California law and our rules of conduct because our agenda included a possible suspension or expulsion from membership of Mr. Smith. We were required to notify Mr. Smith 15 days prior to a board meeting on which such action may be taken, and we have also given them an opportunity of providing a written statement to the Board at least five days prior to that meeting.”
“Following the resignation of Mr. Smith of his membership in the Academy on Friday, 1 April, there is no longer any possibility of suspension or expulsion and the legally set timetable no longer applies.”
“It is in the best interest of everyone involved that this is handled in a timely manner.”
Thank you for hosting the meeting at 9:00 a.m. (Pacific Time) on Friday. Zoom details will follow soon.
