Will Smith mashup

hen Will Smith became public enemy No. 1 after the infamous slap against Chris Rock at the Oscars, the majority of Academy members canceled the actor. An official statement of his suspension for indefinite time was given to the press and the entire world but Will Smith could have the last laugh. Hidden under his sleeve, was the ‘King Richard‘ actor’s ace in the form of his new film. Apple TV+ is releasing ‘Emancipation‘ on November 9 for the entire world to see. On paper, it seems like Will is has entered the sweetest spot of his career as a performer.

If the rumors of the film are any true, this performance from Smith might surpass what he already did for ‘King Richard‘. If he doesn’t get a nomination for the Oscars, there will be outrage from people demanding to separate art and the artist. In hindsight, Will Smith didn’t do anything illegal. All he did was behave like a douchbag on national television but he never comitted any crimes. ‘Emancipation‘ director Antoine Fuqua has high hopes for this film and he can only dream of member of the Academy to forgive Will Smith and grant him a nomination.

Fuqua’s plea for Will Smith

This is what the director said during an interview with the folks at Variety: “The film to me is bigger than that moment. Four hundred years of slavery is bigger than one moment. My hope is that people watch the movie and be swept away with the great performance by Will and all the real hard work that the whole crew did. I saw a different person than that one moment in time, and so my reaction was that particular moment is very foreign to me when it comes to Will Smith. I have nothing but amazing things to say about Will Smith, really genuinely. You can ask anybody that worked on the movie, they’ll tell you the same. Nicest person I’ve ever met in my life.

Chris Rock-I know Chris-Chris is a good guy too. I’ve spent time with Chris, and I think it’s an unfortunate event and I hope we can move forward and get past it. But you’ve got to remember, Will did a movie. The movie was supposed to end in October, but we didn’t finish that movie until January because of a hurricane, the heat, COVID, a tornado, and 12 other things. It was just crazy, really. It’s really hard to release a character who’s been brutalized and called the N-word every day-constantly, every day-and still be the nicest person in the world. That, I know.”

The most recent and final trailer of the film just released and it is looking mighty great for Will Smith. As a subject matter for an Oscar bait movie, slavery has a great record in recent years. Back in 2014, ‘12 Years a Slave‘ won many awards during that ceremony. Antoine Fuqua is expecting a similar result but he knows Will Smithwas his presentation card for the film. You can watch it on December 9, streaming only on Apple TV+.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.
