Jordan Brand Gifts Spike Lee Gold Air Jordan 3s for The Oscars

BlackKklansman director Spike Lee took home his first Oscar at the Academy Awards, following five nominations over almost 30 years.

"The 2020 presidential election is around the corner", Lee said. Make the moral choice between love and hate. "Let's all be on the right side of history".

His sentiment was a call to action and also referenced Lee's 1989 film Do the Right Thing. Let's do the right thing.

Lee pulled out a folded piece of notebook paper, and recalled how his grandmother "saved 50 years of social security checks" so he could attend Morehouse College and NYU graduate film school.

Lee ended his speech - which had Jordan Peele in tears - on a political note. "I got closer and realized it was Spike Lee writing an acceptance speech for his Oscar nominations".

It is a satirical film loosely based on a true story about a black policeman who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan by using a white, Jewish proxy. Actor Adam Driver was nominated for best actor in a supporting role.

While the "Best Director" and "Best Picture" categories are to be decided later this evening (February 24), the win comes after almost 20 years of waiting.
