Wait, what? Jada Pinkett Smith is now ‘grateful’ to the Oscars

After her outburst during the week, Jada Pinkett Smith has thanked Oscars president Cheryl Boone Isaacs. 

The president of the awards admitted to being "heartbroken and frustrated" by the all-white nominations, which were announced this week. 

Jada made a very public video and promised to boycott the award show next month, but Cheryl had a very quick response and insisted that the organisation is going up for a review. 

Mrs Pinkett Smith then took to social media saying: "I would like to express my gratitude to the Academy, specifically Cheryl Boone Isaacs, for such a quick response in regard to the issue at hand. I look forward to the future."

Jada's husband, Will Smith was hoping for a nomination for his role in Concussion, but didn't make the final five. Will's ex-co-star, Janet Hubert, who played Aunt Viv in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, also spoke out yesterday about Jada's public video.
