For y'all who might not know, Edward famously leaked classified information from the National Security Agency to the mainstream media, a move which caused outrage AND admiration.
The director, Laura Poitras, gave many accolades and thanks to the fugitive in her acceptance speech.
Congrats to Poitras for her amazing investigative work.

20 Feet From Stardom? More like 0 feet from stardom because the film just won the award for Best Documentary Feature at the Oscars!
The fantastic documentary about backup singers took home the gold, and we absolutely loved when Darlene Love sang her heart out after the win! She has pipes for days!
The film had to beat out other AH-Mazing documentaries such as The Act of Killing, Dirty Wars, The Square, and Cutie and the Boxer!
Congrats to all involved with the film! Enjoy your Oscar!

20 Feet From Stardom may have to change its name!
Now that it's the Critic’s Choice Awards winner for Best Documentary Feature, it's only inches from being a star!
That's just thismuch closer than the remarkable other nominees The Act of Killing, Blackfish, Stories We Tell, and Tim's Vermeer!
But you can't beat the power of music, and the story of background singers really struck a chord with the critics!
