The Oscars went down in Hollywood on Sunday night, and while they provided the world with a slew of amazing moments (hello, Leonardo DiCaprio's first win), they were also at the center of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. Celebrities like Kerry Washington decided to still attend the event despite the lack of diverse nominees, but other stars like Denzel Washington and Spike Lee opted out of being a part of it. The two famous men were spotted at basketball games on opposite sides of the country during the glamorous show and appeared to be having the time of their lives. While Denzel had a casual date night with wife Pauletta at the LA Lakers game, Spike sported a fancy tuxedo while cheering on the New York Knicks with his wife, Tonya Lewis. The director, who released a statement about his decision not to attend this year, proved that he definitely doesn't need a red carpet to look sharp. Keep reading to see more of their night, then check out how the show addressed the #OscarsSoWhite problem.
