Spike Lee is now getting the respect he deserves. The movie director of two decades has received 6 Oscar nominations in recognition for BlacKkKlansman. Spike Lee is no joke around movie director. He has made a whole lot of hit movies over the years such as She’s Gotta Have It, Do The Right Thing, and Inside Man made noise but never garnered Oscar attention. It’s surprising that only now he is getting recognized for his work, but the saying that will pass around repeatedly is…better late, than never.”
Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” is now being re-released to selected theaters since his six Oscar nominations. Sadly, chances are is that Spike Lee probably will not win an Oscar this year as he is in a tough category for Best Picture up against Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody, The Favourite, A Star Is Born, and Green Book. Even in other categories, it would be a killer for Spike Lee to win.
Sure, BlacKkKlansman did well for Spike’s numbers, and garnered attention but we don’t think it’s enough. Hollywood is a political place. Hollywood has been under pressure to diversify their awards show nominations and category-so throwing Spike Lee in the mix of heavy weights, well known films could be a way for Hollywood to make their case “of changing times” of integration.
