Will Smith Wins Oscar For Best Actor: 'I’m Being Called On In My Life To Love And Protect People'
After being nominated for two Academy Awards in the past, Will Smith won his first ever Oscar for “Best Actor In A Leading Role” for his performance in King Richard, alongside Black Women In Hollywood honoree Aunjanue Ellis.
Smith gave a stirring speech, noting the similarities between himself and Richard Williams, the star of the Williams family biopic for which he won the “Best Actor” award.
“Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family,” the Philadelphia-born actor said. “In this time in my life. In this moment, I am overwhelmed by what God is calling on me to do and be in this world. Making this film I got to protect Aunjanue Ellis who is one of the most strongest and most delicate people I ever met. I got to protect Saniyya and Demi, the two actresses that played Venus and Serena.
