10 Rappers That Deserve an Oscar



Will Smith in Independence Day
Will Smith’s 1996 sci-fi smash hit Independence Day helped launch his acting career. He played pilot Captain Steve Hillier who was in charge of thwarting an alien invasion that occurred on July 4th. It wasn’t a typical, over-the-top, old B movie, but rather showcased a young Will at his best. The combination of memorable lines—“Welcome to Earth!”—and grand visual spectacles made Independence Day an instant fan favorite. If there was one film to remind us of Smith’s early star power, it was his performance here.
