Following last year’s Will Smith slap incident, Bill Kramer, the CEO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, has disclosed in a new interview that a “crisis team” will be in place for this year’s ceremony.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has established a crisis team for this year in response to the controversy that erupted at the Oscars last year when actor Will Smith jumped onto the stage and slapped host Chris Rock during the live ceremony.

Bill Kramer, the CEO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, addressed the most current worries regarding this year’s ceremony, which will take place next month, in a recent interview. The Oscars’ ratings have fallen to their lowest point in the 90-year history of the programme over the past two years. The AMPAS president Janet Yang also stated that the organization’s response was “inadequate” at the Oscar nominee’s luncheon that was held last month.
Now, Bill Kramer stated that a “crisis team” is in place this year the most recent interview with Time Magazine. He stated: “We’ve never had a full crisis team before, and we have a lot of measures in place. Several scenarios have been tested. We, therefore, aspire to be ready for anything that we may not now predict but are nonetheless making plans for just in case it does occur.”
About the unexpected slap that sparked a debate the previous year, Bill added, “We are more open-minded about the potential outcomes of the Oscars as a result of last year. But since we have crisis communication teams and structures in place, we can indicate that this is the group that has to come together right away. We all come together in this way. The spokesperson is here. The statement will be this.
We already have frameworks in place that we can alter, though that depends on the specifics of the crisis. Let’s hope nothing happens and we never have to utilise these.”
On March 12, the 95th Academy Awards will air, with Jimmy Kimmel serving as host once more.
