The Board has decided, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith shall not be permitted to attend any Academy events or programs, in person or virtually, including but not limited to the Academy Awards.

During our telecast, we did not adequately address the situation in the room. For this, we are sorry.
