Spike Lee Attack Donald Trump at Oscars Without Saying the Man's Name

Spike Lee

He also urged greater awareness leading to the 2020 election. "Make the moral choice between love and hate", said Lee, who was given an honorary Oscar in 2015. Let's do the right thing.

John Binder is a reporter for Breitbart News.

Civil rights dramedy Green Book, the tale of a celebrated black pianist who befriends his white driver as they tour the segregated American South in the 1960s, claimed the best picture Oscar on Sunday.

"While walking around backstage, I noticed a small figure hunched in a corner writing something", Noah wrote.

But true to form, the Oscars came back to their real nature, which is to rip Trump or those on the Right and push their political leanings, when "BlackKklansman" director Spike Lee took the stage.

Lee and Willmott won the award over the writers of the films "A Star is Born", "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs", "Can you Ever Forgive Me?" and "If Beale Street Could Talk".

Willmott is the second Oscar victor with a connection to KU, said Erinn Barcomb-Peterson, a spokeswoman for the university.

The film was nominated for a total of six Oscars, including best picture, film editing and original score. He was also nominated for Best Documentary Feature for his 1997 film 4 Little Girls, about the four black girls who were killed in the 1963 bombing of a church in Birmingham, Alabama.

USA actress Regina King also bagged her very first Oscar for best supporting actress for If Beale Street Could Talk.

Lee's other films include Malcolm X, She's Gotta Have It, Miracle at St. Anna, Inside Man and 25th Hour.
