With Spike Lee facing heavy criticism for his soon-to-be released CHI-RAQ movie, it didn’t stop or alter the honor he received over the weekend as the acclaimed director received an honorary Oscar to commemorate is 29 year career in the film industry. Spike Lee has delivered some classics over the years and the honor is well deserved. When you think of Do That Right Thing, Malcolm X, or even School Daze, Lee has directed more than enough films that will stand the test of time. Not to mention, he was a major part of some creative Michael Jordan commercials back in the day.
Spike Lee was quite appreciative and proud of his honor as he posted the above pic with this caption via his Facebook page.
“What A Blessing To Have Denzel Washington,Samuel L. Jackson And Wesley Snipes Present Me Last Night With The Honorary Oscar For My 29 Year Body Of Work.It Was An Historic Night. YA-DIG? SHO-NUFF. And Dat’s Da Truth,Ruth.”
Congratulations Spike Lee! Enjoy your moment.
