Five Oscar nominations and 30 years later, Spike Lee finally won his first Oscar Sunday night for BlacKkKlansman. Since this is CharSaint.com, it wouldn’t be a post without reviewing Spike’s all purple attire right? Well FYI, it was his tribute to the late Prince. I personally, could have done without the h-t-t purple but then again, it wasn’t me. So… 🤷🏾♀️
Interestingly enough, the big take away from Spike Lee’s winning speech (which, in my opinion, was all over the place but I still love you Spike😘) referenced the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
Spike Lee spoke to the Oscar’s crowd and said “Let’s all mobilize, let’s all be on the right side of history.”
Here’s how I took it: Spike waited all these years to win a rightfully deserved Academy Award and now that he’s won he’s on the stage. A main stage where hundreds of millions of people are tuned it. So, what better way to remind a country of its greatness that it always was, not what Trump thought it “could be”.
