Shelton Jackson “Spike” Lee (created March 20, 1957) is an American film director, producer, writer, and performer. His production firm, 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks, has produced over 35 movies since 1983. Lee’s films have analyzed race relations, colorism in the black community, the function of media in modern life, urban crime and poverty, and other political problems. He’s got also received two Academy Award nominations; in addition to winning the 2013 Gish Prize “for his brilliance and unwavering bravery in using picture to challenge traditional thinking.”

A lot of people, including Hollywood’s Kim Basinger considered that Do the Right Thing also deserved a Best Picture nomination. Driving Miss Daisy won Best Picture that year. Lee said in an April 7, 2006 interview with New York magazine the other movie’s success, which he believed was based on safe stereotypes, damage him more than if his picture hadn’t been nominated for an award. Following the 1990 launch of Mo’ Better Blues, Lee was accused of antisemitism by the Anti-Defamation League and many movie critics. They criticized the characters of the nightclub owners Josh and Moe Flatbush, described as “Shylocks”. Lee denied the charge, explaining that he composed those characters as a way to depict how black artists fought against exploitation. Lee stated that Lew Wasserman, Sidney Sheinberg or Tom Pollock, the Jewish heads of MCA and Universal Studios, were unlikely to permit antisemitic content in a movie they made. He explained he cannot make an antisemitic movie because Jews run Hollywood, and “that is a fact.” He received the 2008 Wexner Prize. In 2013, he won The Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize, among the richest prizes in the American artwork worth $300,000.
