Shelton Jackson "Spike" Lee is an American film director, producer, writer, and actor.
His production company, 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks, has produced over 35 films since 1983.
Lee's movies have examined race relations, colorism in the black community, the role of media in contemporary life, urban crime and poverty, and other political issues.
Lee has received two Academy Award nominations and won numerous other awards, including an Emmy Award as well as the 2013 Gish Prize "for his brilliance and unwavering courage in using film to challenge conventional thinking."
Maybe the Oscar nominations can restore some clarity and civility to a messy and nasty awards season.
But don’t count on it.
