Oscar interrupter says she was wronged

q21269 260x195 Oscar interrupter says she was wronged

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.
