Somehow hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs got lost in the shuffle with all the Octavia Spencer excitement at the Academy Awards Sunday night. Combs surprised the world when he took home an Oscar for his involvement in “Undefeated.”
Combs won his Oscar for executive producing the football flick for best documentary.
The film opened in February 2011 and follows the highs and lows of underfunded and underprivileged high school football team from Tennessee.
The story was something close to Diddy’s heart.
“When I was coming up and I went to high school, it was my dream to be a football player and I broke my leg in the last day of camp,” Diddy recently told ET. “The movie really moved me in a personal way, but it could touch people in so many other ways.”
He later went to Twitter to thank his fans and family, writing, “Dreams do come true!!!!! #undefeated!!!! Let’s go!!!”
