Netflix's "Icarus" won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature at the 90th Academy Awards on Sunday night. The film, an expose of the state-sanctioned doping program used to prepare Russian athletes for the Olympics, led in part to the country being banned from this year's Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. While accepting the award, director Brian Fogel thanked the film's subject, Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, who blew the whistle on the doping program and now "lives in great danger." (Backstage, Fogel told reporters that the Russian government wants to extradite Rodchenkov, and that the whistleblower's life has been publicly threatened by The Russian Olympics Committee.) Netflix's "White Helmets," about search-and-rescue volunteers in Syria, won the Best Documentary Feature category last year. The Best Documentary Short prize went to "Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405." – EW
