The Asif Kapadia-directed film took home the prize at last night's Academy Awards.

Mitch Winehouse has spoken out after Amy won the Oscar For Best Documentary Feature at the 88th Academy Awards.

The Asif Kapadia-directed film, which follows the life of British singer Amy Winehouse, beat the likes of Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Look of Silence, to win the coveted prize.

Accepting the award at last night's (Sunday 28 February) ceremony, Kapadia said: "This film is about Amy and showing the world who she really was, not the tabloid persona."

Film producer Gay-Rees added: "This is for the fans who loved her through thick and thin, that's all she ever needed."

However, Amy's father Mitch Winehouse isn't happy about the win, and has long condemned the film as inaccurate and misleading.

The 64-year-old jazz singer and campaigner has since taken to Twitter to maintain his stance on Asif Kapadia, accusing him of fooling "everybody" and calling the film a "negative, spiteful and misleading portrayal of Amy".

Since it's release in July 2015, Amy has become the UK's highest ever grossing non-fiction film.

Mitch Winehouse is also planning to release his own documentary Letters To Amy.
