Amy Winehouse's Father Slams "Amy" Director After Oscar Win

Amy, won the Best Documentary Feature at the Oscars adding another win to director Asif Kapadia's mantlepiece, following his win at the BAFTA's earlier this month.

Based on the late singer Amy Winehouse, not everyone is happy the film is racking up all the awards.

Amy's father Mitch Winehouse has always been vocal about his disapproval of the film and the way he was portrayed in it, and he tweeted his dismay on Monday morning.

"Always proud of my baby," he wrote. "Amy will not get an Oscar though. Just Asif Kapadia. That is what this is all about...Asif. He's fooled everybody."

In a follow-up tweet he wrote: "I am not changing my stance just because film won Oscar. It's a negative, spiteful and misleading portrayal of Amy. We will fix this."

Mitch Winehouse hasn't been portrayed in the best of lights in this film about his daughter.

He previously spoke out to ITV in May last year saying, "the film is representing me in a not very good way. There is no balance, there's nothing about the foundation. It's portraying me and my relationship with Amy in not a very good light."

He also said the film won't be Amy's legacy, and that there were "other projects" in the pipeline.
