Spike Lee will be honoured with the lifetime achievement award at the DGA’s 74th annual awards ceremony on March 12.

“Icon. Trailblazer. Visionary. Spike Lee has changed the face of cinema and there is no single word that encapsulates his significance to the craft of directing,” DGA President Lesli Linka Glatter said.

“From his groundbreaking ‘Do the Right Thing’, ‘BlacKkKlansman‘ and everything in between — to his signature ‘double dolly’ shot, Spike is an innovator on so many levels,” Glatter noted, adding: “His bold and passionate storytelling over the past three decades has masterfully entertained, as it held a stark mirror to our society and culture.”
