Spike Lee Celebrates His Oscar Nomination At Local Bar

The intimate Brooklyn get together was a shy block away from his Fort Greene home and included close friends, long time colleagues, and doting family members.

“BlacKkKlansman” received six nominations in total and is hailed as one of Lee’s most recognized films by the Academy. If you read that and thought “it’s about time” you aren’t the only one. 

Most of the internet’s reaction was in line with that sentiment. One Twitter user even pulled up receipts from actress Kim Basinger shedding light on the snub while presenting at the 1989 Academy Awards. What a G!

Thirty years is a long time, ain’t it?” Lee said of his three-decades-plus career without a best director nod.

To see a living legend finally get the recognition he deserves from one of the most respected cinematic institutions in the world is A MOMENT. To have witnessed first hand the outpouring of love, joy, and support for that moment was nothing short of A MOVIE (cc: a Spike Lee joint). Check out photos from last night’s celebration below.
