Jada Pinkett Smith is angry that her husband, Will Smith, was overlooked by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the group responsible for nominating actors for Oscars.
Will Smith, Jada feels, was overlooked by the Academy for his performance in “Concussion.”
In her video clip, Mrs. Smith says, “Maybe it’s time we pull back our resources and we put them back into our communities and we make programs for ourselves that acknowledge us in ways that we see fit, that are just as good as the so-called mainstream.”
Janet Hubert a.k.a. the original Aunt Viv from Fresh Prince of Bel Air has a lot to say about Jada Pinkett Smith and her thoughts about boycotting this year’s Academy Awards.
Hubert released a YouTube video on Monday bashing the 44-year-old actress for pondering the idea of an Oscars boycott when addressing the lack of diversity surrounding this year’s nominations.
“First of all, Miss Thing does your man not have a mouth of his own with which to speak?” the 60-year-old wrote.
“The second thing, girlfriend, there’s a lot of s— going on in the world that you all don’t seem to recognize. People are dying. Our boys are being shot left and right. People are starving. People are trying to pay bills. And you’re talking about some motherf—ing actors and Oscars. It just ain’t that deep,” she continued.
