Spike Lee jumps into Samuel L Jackson

Spike Lee won best adapted screenplay for “BlacKkKlansman” at Sunday night’s Oscar ceremony.

When he was announced as the winner, the film director cheerfully walked up to the stage bursting with energy and emotion, then jumped into the arms of Samuel L Jackson.

While giving his speech, the 61-year-old film maker used some choice language and was bleeped.

Spike Lee jumps into Samuel L Jackson

He said:

The word today is “irony.” The date, the 24th. The month, February, which also happens to be the shortest month of the year, which also happens to be Black History month. The year, 2019. The year, 1619. History. Her story. 1619. 2019. 400 years.


Four hundred years. Our ancestors were stolen from Mother Africa and bought to Jamestown, Virginia, enslaved. Our ancestors worked the land from can’t see in the morning to can’t see at night. My grandmother, [inaudible], who lived to be 100 years young, who was a Spelman College graduate even though her mother was a slave. My grandmother who saved 50 years of social security checks to put her first grandchild — she called me Spikie-poo — she put me through Morehouse College and N.Y.U. grad film. N.Y.U.!

Before the world tonight, I give praise to our ancestors who have built this country into what it is today along with the genocide of its native people. We all connect with our ancestors. We will have love and wisdom regained, we will regain our humanity. It will be a powerful moment. The 2020 presidential election is around the corner. Let’s all mobilize. Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing! You know I had to get that in there.

Watch Spike Lee give his Oscars speech in the video below.
