What can you give a man who already has everything – something else he’s EARNED – an Oscar!
Music and fashion mogul, entrepreneur, actor and producer – Sean “P Diddy” Combs took home a gold statue from the 84th Annual Academy Awards, which was held in Hollywood. California on February 26, 2012.
Diddy took the top honors for producing the football documentary, The Undefeated, which won for Best Documentary. The film was about a struggling high school football team from Memphis, Tennessee.
After the award was announced, @iamdiddy and his fans lit up Twitter about the news.
“God is the greatest!!!! Thank you! #undefeated !!!!” Diddy tweeted.
“DREAMS DO COME TRUE!! Hard work pays off!!” another tweet said.
The film’s director, T. J. Martin, made history as the first African American director to win an Academy Award. Overcome with excitement, Martin accidentally dropped the “F-bomb” during his acceptance speech.
Of course, all was forgiven. Hey, it’s Hollywood!
