Sean Penn Says He Will 'Smelt' His Awards

Actor vows to melt down statuettes if Ukrainian president is not offered a platform at Sunday’s ceremony.

Sean Penn has described any potential lack of backing by the Academy Awards for the Ukrainian people as “the most obscene moment in all of Hollywood history”.

Speaking on CNN, Penn, who has been in Ukraine and Poland making a documentary about the plight of refugees, vowed to publicly melt down his Oscar statuettes

if the awards body declined to offer the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, a platform at Sunday night’s event.

“There is nothing greater that the Academy Awards could do than to give [Zelenskiy] an opportunity to talk to all of us,” Penn said.

“It is my understanding that a decision has been made not to do it. That is not me commenting on whether or not President Zelenskiy had wanted to.”
