Oscars 'Kanye' Victim Gets Second Chance

3/8/2010 4:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Roger Ross Williams -- the guy who got Kanye'd last night on the Oscars by that crazy redhead -- will get a second shot at his acceptance speech tonight on "Larry King Live" ... so our spies tell us.

Larry King, Roger Ross Williams

Williams -- who won the Academy Award for "Music by Prudence" -- was interrupted mid-acceptance by producer Elinor Burkett.

Burkett and Williams had been feuding over creative control of the project, and they struck an out-of-court settlement. Burkett had been removed from the movie, but still kept her producer credit.

Here's the best part: Burkett tells Salon.com, when she stood up to go onstage, Williams' mom tried to block her with a cane.

UPDATE: Burkett will tell her side of the story to Joy Behar on her show on HLN at 9:00 PM on Tuesday night.

my dear friend roger is nothing but a loser.....there's 2 sides of the story and his does not count.....he's a thief and a scam artist..he's never been to zimbowe he's never meet the kids untill they came here...eleanor set up an account for him to use the money for the project but he was using it for personal use and got cought that's why she took him to court and she won and he had to return all the money to her...

furthermore the proper thing that he should have done was to wait when they call them and he decided to go ahead and start talking without her that was very rude of him....he used her and the rest of us...who pay for the project...eleanor and her husband because he had nothing...and he still does not have anithing compare to eleanor...she's a great lady with a great heart..the open and orfanage in zimbawe and a school for poor kids.

she was never thrown from the project lets be clear about that part of the settlement was that rojer has the right in the US and eleanor has the right in EUROPE.....but she was still the main producer.....rojer wanted to do the film about the singer ..eleanor wanted the film to be about all the kids in zimbawe....he wanted to get all the credit but it did not play his way....victim ...haha..give a break

All I could think was "who the hell is THAT woman?!" She grossed me out and most likely everyone else watching.

I certainly don't want to hear her side of the story.
Her behavior said enough. She was beligerant and interrupted
him. There is no excuse for THAT whatsoever. He was graceful
and cool. She exposed her own greedy motives.
