Perhaps flashing back to 1990, when the far inferior (to every other nominee + Spike Lee’s un-nominated “Do the Right Thing”) “Driving Miss Daisy” won Best Picture, Spike Lee was reportedly not very happy to see “Green Book” win last night’s top prize. Deadline reports that:
“Our Pete Hammond reported from the Dolby Theatre that Lee clearly was furious, got up and walked toward the back of the auditorium in a huff. He then turned back and appeared to get into an intense conversation with Jordan Peele, who was behind him. Lee paced the aisle and stormed to the back of the auditorium. When he came back, he turned his back to the stage during the speech.”
