Is one of only seven living directors who have won the Directors Guild of America Award more than once. The others are Steven Spielberg (3 times) and two-time winners Clint Eastwood, Ron Howard, Francis Ford Coppola, Oliver Stone and Milos Forman. However, Lee is unique in this group and being the only one not to have directed a best picture Oscar winner.

When he cast Winston Chao as his lead in The Wedding Banquet (1993), Chao was an airline steward and model and had never acted in a film before. They spent three to four hours every day to teach him how to act. Lee later cast Chao again in Eat Drink Man Woman (1994).
