Crisis Management Team to be Deployed for Upcoming Oscars


Crisis Management Team to be Deployed for Upcoming Oscars

Precautionary measures to avoid a repeat of the slapping incident.

Despite being viewed as entertaining by some, the unforgettable moment from the 2022 Academy Awards, where Will Smith unexpectedly stormed onto the stage to retaliate against Chris Rock for a jibe about his wife’s alopecia, has triggered a reevaluation of the event’s security protocols. It marked a historic occurrence of physical assault on the Oscars stage, prompting the organizers to avert such occurrences in the future.

!function(n){if(!window.cnxps){window.cnxps={},window.cnxps.cmd=[];var t=n.createElement(‘iframe’);t.display=’none’,t.onload=function(){var n=t.contentWindow.document,c=n.createElement(‘script’);c.src=””,c.setAttribute(‘async’,’1′),c.setAttribute(‘type’,’text/javascript’),n.body.appendChild(c)},n.head.appendChild(t)}}(document);

cnxps.cmd.push(function () {
playerId: getUrsCtxStoryPlayer() ,”customParam1″:getUrsPI(),”customParam2″:getUrsSTI(),”customParam3″:”ConnatixMain”,settings: {queryJsTargeting:{apsTargetingKey:getUrsTI().split(‘_’).slice(0,1).join(‘_’).toLowerCase()},advertising: {macros: {“CustomMacro1″:getUrsPI(),”CustomMacro2″:getUrsSTI(),”CustomMacro3″:”ConnatixMain”}}}

To preempt any future such incidents, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will deploy a specialized “crisis team” during the forthcoming 2023 Academy Awards, set to take place next month. This dedicated team will work proactively to anticipate, intercept, and manage any potential disruptions or violent outbursts during the event, ensuring that situations do not escalate.

Bill Kramer, the CEO of the Academy, shared with Time Magazine, “We have explored various scenarios. Our aim is to be equipped to address any unforeseen circumstances that may arise. We are strategizing to tackle the unexpected should it materialize.”

“Last year prompted us to broaden our scope about the possible incidents at the Oscars. These crisis schemes— encompassing communication teams and frameworks—are designed to swiftly mobilize in the face of an emergency,” Kramer further elaborated.

“This is our joint endeavor. Here is the official representative. This will be our official response. While we hope for the best and strive to avoid any unwanted situations, we have established frameworks that can be tailored as needed.”
