We know Robert Griffin III inspired the Washington Redskins last season and led them on an improbable playoff run, but what you may not have known is that his presence is also felt in the film industry. Filmmaker Sean Fine won an Oscar Academy Award on Sunday night for best documentary. Like most of the other nominees, he was well-dressed. Unlike any of the others, Fine was rocking a pair of RG3 socks. As Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog pointed out, Fine is a third-generation Washingtonian. After winning the award, he took to Twitter and posted the photo you see above of him on the red carpet with the following message: “@RG3 we just won an Oscar ‘no pressure no diamonds.’” Either Fine has met RG3 or he went trick-or-treating at his house last Halloween. If you thought a college quarterback wearing comic-inspired socks to the Heisman Trophy celebration took guts, try wearing them on the red carpet at the Oscars in front of some of the most famous actors, directors, writers and filmmakers in the world.
