Diddy takes home the Academy Award for best documentary.
Octavia Spencer wasn’t the only Black winner at last night’s 84th Annual Academy Awards.
Music mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs took home the Oscar for executive producing the football documentary Undefeated, reports The Grio.
The film was nominated for best documentary and director T.J. Martin was so overwhelmed with excitement he dropped the f-bomb while accepting the award. Martin also happens to be the first Black director to win an Oscar.
After the winner was announced, Diddy tweeted, “God is the greatest! Thank You! #Undefeated!”
The film, which opened in February of 2011, follows the highs and lows of an underfunded and underprivileged high school football team from Memphis.
Congratulations to Diddy and T.J. Martin on your major wins!
