    Spike Lee accepting his Honorary Oscar Just before the 7th annual Governors Awards on Saturday night, honoree Spike Lee told Yahoo Movies one thing about his acceptance speech: “I won’t be reading off a teleprompter, that’s for sure.” The 58-year-old writer-director was on hand to collect his Honorary Oscar at the Hollywood event, where he was being honored along with Gena Rowlands and Debbie Reynolds (who shared a recorded message since she was not in well enough health to attend). Lee was introduced by actor Samuel L. Jackson, who credited the auteur with taking his career to the next level with the films School Daze and Do the Right Thing. “I like that about him.” Jackson was flanked by Jungle Fever star Wesley Snipes and Denzel Washington, star of Lee’s Mo’ Better Blues and Malcolm X. “Spike Lee put more African-Americans to work in this business than anyone in the history of this business,” Washington said.
