Famous actor Sean Penn has announced that he will publicly destroy and melt the statues from the Oscars, if the Academy does not offer Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to address tonight’s award ceremony of the largest film award in the world. He described the lack of support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the Ukrainian people as “the most outrageous moment in the history of Hollywood”.
“There is nothing more the Oscars can do but give Zelensky a chance to talk to all of us,” Penn told CNN, noting that a decision had apparently already been made not to do so. . Penn was in Ukraine in late February, where he was shooting a documentary on defense against Russian aggression.
