The response on Twitter to the president's message was swift. But in another sense, one can look at the "Green Book" win as a kind of death rattle of those, like Giuliani and others, who want their Hollywood politics to be more palatable. And nothing he indirectly said about Trump could possibly be construed as "racist".

It closes with images taken from real footage of the "Unite the White" rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017 that led to the death of Heather Heyer.

Trump has also championed "opportunity zones" along with Sen.

The BlacKkKlansman director was reported to have stood up and waved his hands in disgust during Sunday's Oscars ceremony, when Julia Roberts announced Green Book as the victor of the night's top prize.

"The word today is 'irony, '" he said. The date, the 24th.

"1619 to 2019. 400 years".

"To all the nerdy girls who hide behind sketch books don't be afraid to tell your stories to the world", she said when accepting her award. Enslaved. Our ancestors worked the land ...

"If we all connect with our ancestors, we will have love, wisdom regained, and regain our humanity", he continued. It will be a powerful moment. Lee leaped into Jackson's arms before reading a pre-written speech that highlighted the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the importance for everyone to rock the vote in the next presidential election.

University of Kansas professor Kevin Willmott has won an Oscar for his contribution to the film "BlacKkKlansman".

Lee reportedly tried to leave, but was stopped, and eventually returned to his seat. The Academy's show runners listened because that "Your Time is Over" music did not attempt to cut Lee's speech short.

Backstage he said he thought he was courtside at a basketball game in Madison Square Garden and that the referee had made a "bad call".

Looking back at that defeat, he joked: "Every time somebody is driving somebody, I lose!". "They changed the seating arrangement!"

The controversy surrounding Green Book is something producer Jim Burke acknowledged was "discouraging". After the film hit theaters, family members responded by calling its portrayal of the friendship between Shirley and his driver, Frank "Tony Lip" Vallelonga (played by Viggo Mortensen), full of inaccuracies and outright lies. "You know I had to get that in there".
