The 2016 BRIT Award nominees arrived on Thursday (Jan. 14), and with 'em came a surprising nod for the nearly-five-years-gone Amy Winehouse in the Best British Female Artist category. The recognition comes thanks to a soundtrack released in tandem with the celebrated Amy documentary.
And papa Mitch Winehouse is pumped! But his long-standing opposition to the film hasn't changed:
Just heard Amy nominated for Brit for best British female singer. We are so proud of you baby. Still hate the film though!— mitch winehouse (@mitchwinehouse) January 14, 2016
The singer's father previously called director Asif Kapadia's film "very hurtful" and "abhorrent."
Amy Winehouse won Best British Female Artist back in 2007. She was posthumously nominated for the same category in 2013, courtesy of the Lioness: Hidden Treasures compilation. She also won a GRAMMY for the Tony Bennett duet "Body and Soul" in 2012. When the 2016 BRIT Awards go down on Feb. 24, she'll square off against Adele, Florence + the Machine, Jess Glynne and Laura Marling.
