Golden Globes 2023: Will Smith comeback movie Emancipation SNUBBED after Oscars slap

Will Smith's comeback movie Emancipation has been sensationally snubbed in the 80th annual Golden Globes nominations - nine months after he infamously slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars.The Hollywood star, 54, has embarked on a 'apology tour' in recent weeks as he plugged the movie - but his efforts to start his awards season race proved futile as the historical thriller did not receive a single nod.Emancipation is a historical thriller directed by Antoine Fuqua, in which the Fresh Prince actor stars as an enslaved man named Peter who escapes from a Louisiana plantation and braves treacherous territory and slave hunters to make it up north to Union territory, where he is able to join the fight against the Confederacy.The film was inspired by the life of a former slave immortalised in horrifying photos of his back, which was covered in spiderwebbing keloid scars from repeated whippings. Oh dear: Will Smith's comeback movie Emancipation has been sensationally snubbed in the 80th annual Golden Globes nominations - 10 months after he infamously slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars Smith has been attempting to get his £285million career back on track with the film, but recently said  he 'completely understands' if people are deterred from watching his new film.He said: 'I completely understand — if someone is not ready, I would absolutely respect that and allow them their space to not be ready.

Golden Globes Film Analysis: Cruise Is Snubbed, Fraser Isn’t & A Mixed Bag For Diversity

With all the talk about the diversification of the “new” Hollywood Foreign Press Association, particularly in terms of recruiting Black members to make up for the sheer paucity of them as revealed originally in a now-infamous Los Angeles Times report, it might be one of this morning’s key surprises in the nominations for the 80th Golden Globe Awards, that not a single film with strong Black themes or actors or behind the camera talent was among the Best Picture nominees in either Drama or Comedy/Musical categories. Most egregiously missing in those key categories, as well as directing and writing were hotly awards-buzzed The Woman King, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Till, the latter film completely shut out despite heavy Oscar attention expected for its star Danielle Deadwyler who last week was named Best Lead Performance at the Gothams as well as Best Actress at the Critics Choice Celebration of Black Cinema & Television. Will Smith’s return in Emancipation from director Antoine Fuqua also was AWOL, although considering its decidedly mixed critical reception and inherent controversy (although not with the Globes) that isn’t all that surprising to see it snubbed.

Emancipation producer Joey McFarland took to Instagram on Sunday to apologize for taking a photo from 1863 of an enslaved man to the Los Angeles premiere of the Apple TV+ film, which marks Will Smith's first major release since infamously slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars.'I wholeheartedly apologize to everyone I have offended by bringing a photograph of Peter to the Emancipation premiere,' McFarland, 50, said in a statement.

To Walk Or Watch: Our Critic Sticks With ‘Emancipation’

It was fascinating to see my good colleague Valerie Complex describe, in her review of the Antoine Fuqua/Will Smith slavery drama Emancipation, having almost walked out of the film, not because it was unworthy, but because she found the depiction of Black suffering and death almost too much to watch.

‘Emancipation’ Review: Peeling Back The Levels To The Story Of Will Smith’s “Whipped Peter”

“Whipped Peter” spent 10 days traveling through the alligator- and insect-filled Louisiana swamps to join the Union Army after his escape from Lyons plantation in Louisiana. During his medical examination, onlookers marveled at the constellation of raised scars on his back from constant whippings. When war photographers took a picture of his back, and shared it with others, it reminded white people of the viciousness experienced by the enslaved. Antoine Fuqua’s Emancipation retells the story of Peter and his blood-soaked journey to freedom. Written by Bill Collage (Exodus: Gods and Kings), the film is an unforgiving portrait of a man separated from his family and risking his life to reunite with them.
