    Spike Lee attends the American Film Institute's 47th Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute To Denzel Washington at Dolby Theatre, June 6, 2019 in Hollywood, California.

    Spike Lee will receive Film at Lincoln Center's 46th Chaplin Award.

    Lincoln Center announced Thursday that the 62-year-old filmmaker will be honored in its annual fundraising gala on April 27.

    For its 50th anniversary last year, Lincoln Center skipped a Chaplin Award honoree and instead hosted a special gala that featured Martin Scorsese, Pedro Almodovar, Tilda Swinton and others.

    The four previous Chaplin Award winners were Helen Mirren, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Robert Redford.
