'The Oscars': Amy Wins 2016 Best Documentary Feature


Amy Winehouse's father continued to talk smack on the Oscar-winning documentary about his daughter and the film's director on Sunday.

"Always proud of my baby," Mitch Winehouse tweeted after "Amy" won the Academy Award for Best Documentary. "Amy will not get an oscar though. Just Asif Kapadia. That is what this is all about...Asif. He's fooled everybody."

Mitch has been highly critical of the film since its release, and said he hated the film when it was nominated for an Oscar in January.

"I am not changing my stance just because film won Oscar," he continued Sunday. "It's a negative, spiteful and misleading portrayal of Amy. We will fix this."

On stage, Kapadia dedicated his win to the "beautiful girl" who died of accidental alcohol poisoning in 2011. She was only 27.

He also described the "Valerie" singer as "funny, intelligent, witty — someone special, someone who needed looking after," adding that the filmmakers "just wanted to make a film to show the world who she really was."

Amy's rise to fame and downfall due to alcohol, drugs and bulimia are documented in the film, which also shows Mitch's relationship with his Grammy winning daughter. At one point, they clash over him bringing a TV crew to St. Barts while she was trying to escape paparazzi and her personal demons.
