Bridegroom Snubbed By Oscars

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

Some think that the Oscars snubbed "Bridegroom" by not nominating the documentary.

When his partner died and his partner's family shut him out, Flathead native Shane Bitney Crone took to YouTube to share his story.

Two weeks later a director contacted him about making a film, and a year later the project, funded mainly through donations, was ready for an audience.

Since then, the project has racked up nominations from GLAAD and the Gay and Lesbian Film Critic Association.

"There was buzz that the film could potentially be nominated, so that was just amazing and I was honored and flattered and so the fact that we didn't get nominated, that's okay," said Bitney Crone.

Now, Bitney Crone is giving talks at universities across the country, screening his film, and sharing his story.
