American director, Spike Lee and his three fellow “BlacKkKlansman” writers won best adapted screenplay for their story about an African-American police officer who infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan with the help of a Jewish surrogate.

It was Lee’s first competitive Oscar. He started his speech with an expletive and praised his family before pivoting into anti-Trump politics by sounding a battle cry for the coming presidential election.

“Let’s all mobilize,” Lee shouted. “Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing!”
