Not so with the short documentary “Inocente,” which became the first Kickstarter-funded film to win an Oscar.

Co-directors Andrea Nix and Sean Fine praised the crowd-funding website to reporters backstage. They said it helped them generate community involvement as well as dollars.

Nearly 300 people donated $52,000 through the site to fund the documentary chronicling the life of a homeless teenager in San Diego.

“It’s a great new outlet for films, and especially for documentary films,” Fine said.

Kickstarter has more famously raised $160,000 for the forthcoming film “The Canyons,” starring Lindsay Lohan.

The day the website makes a cameo in a tearful acceptance speech can’t be far behind.

NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON

Just as soon as Adele stepped off the stage after singing the Oscar-winning theme from “Skyfall,” she kicked off her sparkly Louboutin platforms.

“I’m sorry. (Forget) that,” she said, flinging the shoes onto the floor. A stagehand quickly swooped them up.

“I’d pick them up but I can’t bend over,” she said, motioning toward her tight beaded dress.
