Hawke attended a special 25th anniversary screening of the 1994 cult film, along with Winona Ryder, Janeane Garofalo, Ben Stiller, writer Helen Childress, producer Michael Shamberg, and executive producer Stacey Sher. He even came dressed for the occasion, wearing a “Hey, That’s My Bike” shirt in homage to the fictional band in the film.
While Hawke had previously appeared in “Explorers” and “Dead Poets Society,” “Reality Bites” was his first shot at a leading role. Stiller, meanwhile, made his directorial debut with the film.

And many viewers thought they should have, including “BlacKkKlansman” director Spike Lee, who reportedly tried to storm out of the Dolby Theatre after the best picture winner was announced. Jordan Peele, the Oscar-winning writer-director behind last year’s “Get Out,” was among other attendees who reportedy didn’t applaud the win.
“I’m snakebit. Every time someone’s driving somebody, I lose,” Lee later told reporters backstage, in reference to his breakout film “Do the Right Thing,” which lost the Oscar for adapted screenplay to 1990’s “Driving Miss Daisy.” “I thought I was court side at the Garden and the refs made a bad call.”
“Green Book” is far from the only controversial decision Academy voters have made over the decades,
In the wake of Lee’s historic Oscar nomination, a clip from the 1990 Oscars is going viral for featuring actress Kim Basinger calling out the Academy live on air for snubbing “Do The Right Thing.” “Driving Miss Daisy” won Best Picture at the Oscars that year, with the other
While Lee was awarded an Honorary Academy Award in 2016, he has yet to ever win a competitive Oscar. The director’s nomination for “BlacKkKlansman” is his first since “4 Little Girls” was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 1998 Academy Awards. Lee co-directed the film with Samuel D.

Being gay facilitated my capacity for shame. As a child, I carried around this thing that gradually became this big dark secret. When I came out in a newspaper interview at 30 I was expecting the reaction the following day to be like the climax of Dead Poets Society, but actually no one really cared.
Taking up magic was a distraction from my sexuality. There is that 1970s cliché of the gay man as hairdresser, interior decorator, fashionista… and all of those things are about arranging surfaces in a very dazzling way – and magic is all about how you arrange surfaces.
