Why Spike Lee Never Wins An Oscar: It’s New York, Dummy

CELEBRITY Quote of the Day, from not-in-the-least-bit-bitter Spike Lee, of New York, New York on his Oscars oversight:

“They take everything into account with me. They take into account that I like the Knicks or that I’m in New York. If you did a survey, the bulk of the people who vote in the Academy are in Los Angeles. There’s definite bias, considering that my films are typically New York-based.”

Who would ever votes for films set in New York, like Grand Hotel, It Happened One Night, Gentleman’s Agreement, All About Eve , The Apartment, West Side Story, Midnight Cowboy..?
