Venus and Serena Williams Decision to pay tribute to her father Richard Williams through the critically acclaimed biopic ‘King Richard‘ had the world talking when it was released in 2021 and will be remembered today as one of the most brilliant sports dramas ever, not fiction but based on reality that gave the world two of its most successful players to become icons even.
Aside from the brilliant script and acting by Will Smith, the film also saw legendary singer Beyonce release a new track, “Be Alive,” which was also nominated for the Oscars but didn’t bring home the trophy. The Oscars still saw the song when it was played Beyonce Live, it featured Serena and Venus introducing the artist, who was performing for the first time in two years, although it was virtual.
The performance took place in Compton, from where the Williams family began their journey to make Venus and Serena legends of the sport. The entire outfit of Beyonce and the group behind her wore a bright neon yellow mini dress with even the musical instruments adapted to the tennis ball theme the entire group had, including Beyonce’s 8-year-old daughter Blue Ivy dancing behind her mother.
The performance was aimed at the Williams family as the Compton court, dress-in-tennis theme and song from the film King Richard pay tribute to their glorious, illustrious career, which has now been presented in a film depicting the struggles and sacrifice shows not only the two players, but the whole family.
Success for Venus and Serena Williams as King Richard wins an Oscar
The movie gave Will Smith his first Oscar award, having previously received two nominations, but the American legend failed to win the prestigious award. The third time is the attraction for him, when he embodied the role of Richard Williams absolutely flawlessly and also deservedly won the award.
With a total of 6 nominations for the film, it only managed to win one, but it’s not bad for first-time producers Venus and Serena whose mission to unravel her father’s story was well received not only by fans, but also by critics and film buffs, who honored the film with an Oscar.
