Turns Out Those Two Doc Short Winners Hate Each Other

Wondering what was up when that red-headed dame Kanye-d the director of last night's Best Documentary Short, Music by Prudence, and launched into her own speech? Salon interviews them both, and it turns out producer Elinor Burkett (Kanye) settled a lawsuit last year over creative control of the film, and she and director Roger Ross Williams (Taylor Swift) are no longer speaking! Also, she claims his 87-year-old mother tried to block her with a cane. We hope this story will be told more fully in the future, perhaps in some kind of short documentary-style film. [Salon]
