This is a tribute documentary I made for my brother, Scott Weir. He was born with severe Cerebral Palsy in 1961, but that did not stop him from living his dreams. He was happiest whenever those dreams put a steering wheel in his hand, whether it be driving an airboat thru the Everglades, a go-cart with his friends or driving his truck a little to fast on his way home, this is what made him smile. NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt was Scott's life long hero, and after my brother's passing in 2007, I decided to fulfill his dream of getting him to victory lane.
Enjoy the ride!!"
A documentary producer who interrupted a director's Oscar acceptance speech Sunday night says she was the one who was "big-footed" on stage.
Elinor Burkett, appearing Tuesday on HLN's "The Joy Behar Show," said Roger Ross Williams' charge that she ambushed him is wrong.
" 'Ambushed' makes it sound like I was just some woman who stormed up on the stage," Burkett said.
Williams and Burkett worked together on "Music by Prudence," a half-hour film about a Zimbabwean woman who overcomes a severe disability and family rejection in one of the world's poorest countries. It won the Academy Award for best short documentary.
Williams was 10 seconds into his acceptance when Burkett, 63, edged him from the microphone.
