While not taking the scene as Kanye West did years ago at the MTV Video Music Awards when Taylor Swift won an award he felt should have gone to Beyonce, BlacKkClansman director Spike Lee did the next best thing when the best image Oscar won by Green Book . Our Pete Hammond, who reported from the Dolby Theater, reported that Lee was clearly furious, walked up and walked to the back of the auditorium in a huff. He turned back and seemed to enter into an intense conversation with Jordan Peele, who was behind him. Lee paced the time and stormed to the back of the auditorium. When he came back, he turned his back to the scene during the century.
At a later appearance, he did on CBS Sunday Morning to promote his best photo candidate, Lee recalled the time that did not not a Best Picture nomination in 1
989, the year as Driving Miss Daisy won. At that time he said he did not comment on Green Book but may have something to say about that movie won. Don’t be surprised if microphones follow him everywhere. Luminous Moment for Universal, which released Green Book and whose focus functions released BlacKkKlansman .
Lee finally won an Oscar in his long career and shares best custom script with Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz and Kevin Willmot. He was skunked in the Best Director category when Alfonso Cuaron won, but didn’t get out of the chair for that. It is unlikely that Lee was ungracious or a sore loser to not win. It was about the undercurrent that seemed to follow Green Book through much of the race. Our Pete Hammond fills in the topics when he can.
