Spike Lee

“Blackkklans­man”

Variety - - Contenders -

Ever since Martin Scors­ese fi­nally won his long- de­nied Os­car for “The De­parted,” Lee has oc­cu­pied his old place in the ranks of Amer­i­can master film­mak­ers who have yet to win the Os­cars’ big prize. “Blackkklans­man” may be Lee's best chance at Os­car gold in years, earn­ing Lee both his high­est box of­fice and strong­est re­views in more than a decade. The film was named to AFI’S top 10 movies of the year, as well as win­ning the Grand Prix from Cannes and a direc­tor nom from the Golden Globes.
