Spike Lee To Receive Oscar…?
Spike Lee has been delivering thought-provoking, entertaining and controversial content for years.
In addition to the stories he chooses to tell, his directorial and camera style is extremely unique and adds to the significance of his tagline “A Spike Lee Joint”.
However, as prominent as his work has been and the ability Spike has to make what he wants without compromise, has gone unrewarded when it comes to award season and mainstream nods.
Maybe he isn’t checking for that. But, the lack of acknowledgement during award season is all about to change.
Earlier this week, the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted to present the Brooklyn-native, with 30 years of experience in the industry and over 20 feature films to his name, with an “Honorary Academy Award”.
So, yes Spike will have an Oscar Statuette to call his own.
The award will be presented at the Academy’s 7th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday, November 14.
We’re looking forward to Spike’s speech!
