LONDON — A documentary about singer Amy Winehouse has won an Academy Award, but her father isn’t celebrating.

Mitch Winehouse says it’s “fantastic” that people still love his daughter, who died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at age 27. But he says Asif Kapadia’s film “Amy,” which won the best-documentary Oscar on Sunday, “has no bearing on her life.”

Mitch Winehouse told The Associated Press Tuesday that he “went mad — I was throwing things at the screen” when he first saw the film. The documentary suggests people close to Amy — and the media — unwittingly contributed to her struggles with addiction and fame.

He claims the documentary paints his daughter as having “a lonely, sad and very unhappy last three years.” He says nothing could be further from the truth.
