LiveLifeLite is proud to announce that Spike Lee is to being honored with an honorary Oscar by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, a group Lee did not hesitate to criticize in the past for their “lack of diversity.”
Lee expressed his surprise saying,
“This came out of nowhere, but that’s how blessings often come. I’m very happy and humbled.”
This is a defining moment in Lee’s career as it has been the feeling that he has often been passed over for such wards due to a lack of diversity and open- mindedness, which many of his racially charged works challenge.
This award should be a beacon to all who have dreams of doing what Lee has done. What you say may not always be liked, but as long as you practice what you preach and remain undeterred success shall come.
