On Sunday, February 27, Will Smith took home his first win at the 28th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Smith won an outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role for his casting in "King Richard."

The father-of-three noted that his longtime friend and "mentor" Denzel Washington predicted his win.

Smith recalled that Washington told him 2022 is his year, and he is proud of who he is becoming.

On January 9, Smith won his first Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama Motion Picture.

The "King Richard" lead's win followed five nominations in 1993, 1994, 2002, 2007, and 2016.

The 53-year-old beat other nominees, including Washington, Javier Bardem, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Smith is excited over "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" series reboot.

The former lead works as a co-executive producer for the series through his label, Westbrook Studios.
