Spike Lee thinks ‘Green Book’ winning the Best Picture Oscar was a “bad call”.

The 61-year-old filmmaker was seen trying to storm out of Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre when it was revealed the musical comedy-drama had taken the evening’s most coveted award and he admitted he was unhappy that his film ‘BlacKkKlansman’ lost out at the honor.

Referring to 1989 Best Picture winner ‘Driving Miss Daisy’, Spike held a glass of champagne aloft backstage and told reporters: “This is my sixth glass and you know why. I’m snake-bit. Every time someone is driving somebody I lose. But in ’89 I didn’t get nominated, so. I thought I was courtside at the Garden and the ref made a bad call.”

However, Spike – who took home the Best Adapted Screenplay honour for the movie – praised the Academy’s new leadership as he feels they helped him secure his first ever nominations this year.

He said: “Without April Reign and the former president of the Academy I wouldn’t be here tonight. They opened up The Academy. Three black women won Oscars. Like my brother Jay-Z says: Facts.

Samuel L. Jackson and I went to the same college. I have known Sam from way, way back. To have him open up the envelope and say my name it was a great thing. Did I jump up on him? That was a genuine reaction.”
