This is pretty brave!

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden hasn't been back to the United States since the WikiLeaks scandal, but his girlfriend Lindsay Mills is a different story.

The model proudly stood on stage during the Oscars, as Director Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald accepted the award for best documentary feature, for their flick Citizenfour. She was seemingly quietly taking the stage in Snowden's stead.

Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris made a joke about Snowden, saying, "Edward Snowden couldn't be here, for some treason."

But Snowden did release a statement in conjunction with the win:

"When Laura Poitras asked me if she could film our encounters, I was extremely reluctant. I'm grateful that I allowed her to persuade me. The result is a brave and brilliant film that deserves the honor and recognition it has received. My hope is that this award will encourage more people to see the film and be inspired by its message that ordinary citizens, working together, can change the world."

Thoughts???
