African American actor and rapper, Will Smith has gotten himself the Golden Globe for his performance in the biopic, King Richard.
The 53-year-old has had a long and industrious career, but in that time, he has never won the Golden Globe award.
In the past, he has been nominated five times- 1993, 1994, 2002, 2007, and 2016. And in his 2022 nomination, he has finally gotten his hands on the award.
King Richard is about the Richard Williams, the father of tennis sisters, Serena and Venus Williams and tells of his determination to write his two daughters, Venus and Serena, into history.
Training on tennis courts in Compton, California, Richard shapes the girls’ unyielding commitment and keen intuition. Together, the Williams family defies seemingly insurmountable odds and the prevailing expectations laid before them.
