Actor Will Smith is already receiving a chilly reception from Oscar voters for his role in the hotly anticipated film “Emancipation.”.

Apple plans to release the Smith-led Civil War drama on its streaming service in December – less than a year after Smith stormed the stage to confront over a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

But many Oscars voters surveyed by The Hollywood Reporter said they are wary of supporting Smith for a “best actor” nod or any other accolades after the incident.

NO F–KING WAY,” Lawrence David Foldes, a member of producers branch of Academy voters, told the outlet?

As recently as last month, Apple was having internal debates over whether to release the movie this year or delay it until 2023 due to concerns Smith’s involvement could tarnish the company’s reputation with the Academy.

“Stopping the release of a film because its star did something offensive hurts the entire production and the hundreds of people who worked on it,” a voter in the sound branch said.

“Smith embarrassed the Academy, his peers and people of color so badly with that reckless behavior that I will not vote for him no matter what, and Apple should not release the film for Academy or other consideration,” another voter said
