Debate has increased around the issue, particularly whether the Oscars are the trees and, perhaps, the studio system and lack of diversity among executives is the forest.

For his part, Smith is focused on what's in front of him at the moment, which is the upcoming Academy Awards (hosted by Chris Rock, who has been asked to not host by Tyrese and others).

"I think I have to protect and fight for the ideals that make our country and make our Hollywood community great," he explained.

"So when I look at the series of nominations of the Academy, it's not reflecting that beauty."
