For the first time in his long and exemplary career, Spike Lee was nominated in 2019 for Best Director for his work on the film BlacKkKlansman, a crime dramedy based on the true story of a black police officer’s successful infiltration of the Ku Klux Klan. This is the same Spike Lee who made Do The Right Thing in 1989 and Malcolm X in 1992—both of which have been selected by the Library of Congress for the National Film Registry—yet it took the Academy three decades to decide that his directorial efforts warranted a nomination.
