Diddy took home an Oscar for serving as executive producer on the documentary.
Last night, Diddy won an Oscar at the 84th annual Academy Awards for serving as executive producer on the documentary Undefeated.
The Bad Boy mogul signed on as executive producer earlier this month for a remake of the flick, nabbing a production credit on the original version during the process. The film, which won in the Best Documentary at last night’s ceremony, focuses on a group of high school football students and their struggles to succeed during one particular season.
Acknowledging the victory, Diddy tweeted, “DREAMS DO COME TRUE!! Hard work pays off!!”
UPDATE: Diddy has released an official statement to the.LIFE Files regarding his Oscar win.
Waking up the day after such an incredible experience is humbling.
I have had so many dreams, some came true others are still being worked on. That said, being apart of a film that shows the drive and determination of kids who seemingly have no hope, no future, and nothing but obstacles, has taught me that there is a universal spirit of faith and character in all of us that binds us. Their story is my story, is our story, is your story at some real level, we can relate. Once the flame is ignited in us, nothing can stop us. I hope to be that spark that makes everyone believe anything is possible. God bless you all and I thank you for sharing in this honor with me.
