On May 2, 2007, the 50th San Francisco International Film Festival honored Spike Lee with the San Francisco Film Society's Directing Award. It also received nominations for the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director (Lee's first ever nomination in this category), with Lee winning his first competitive Academy Award in the category Best Adapted Screenplay.
In 1991, Lee taught a course at Harvard about filmmaking, and in 1993, he began to teach at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in the Graduate Film Program.
One of the documentaries in ESPN's 30 for 30 series, Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs.
The New York Knicks, focuses partly on Lee's interaction with Miller at Knicks games in Madison Square Garden.
He has also received an Academy Honorary Award, an Honorary BAFTA Award, an Honorary César, and the Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize. When he was a child, the family moved to Brooklyn, New York.
His production company, 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks, has produced over 35 films since 1983.
Lee was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay for Do the Right Thing and Best Documentary for 4 Little Girls, but did not win either award.
In November 2015, he was given the Academy Honorary Award for his contributions to filmmaking.
He said he could not make an antisemitic film because Jews run Hollywood, and "that's a fact".
His 1997 documentary 4 Little Girls, about the children killed in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963, was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary.
