Before continuing with the function, Rock said, “Will Smith has just succeeded me.” Meanwhile, a source informed Page Six that the two met after an award function to settle their differences, during which King Richard apologized to everyone but Rock when he won his Best Actor award.
Smith said, “I want to apologize to the Academy. I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees. It’s a beautiful moment and I’m not crying over winning an award. It’s about me winning an award.” No. It’s all about being able to shine a light on people.” After the function, Smith went to Vanity Fair with his family and danced. The Ex Fresh Prince actor of Bel-Air was seen rapping and dancing.
