Matthew Cherry now has more Oscar wins than NFL receptions.
The former journeyman WR completed a remarkable career shift by winning Best Animated Short Film for "Hair Love."
The story of Cherry's film is as big an underdog story as its ex-wideout director. "Hair Love" started out as a Cherry's Kickstarter project about an African-American father's relationship with his daughter and more minority representation in mainstream animation.
It raised over $284,000, starting Cherry down a path he impressively called way back in 2012.
Cherry is only the second professional athlete to ever win an Oscar. The late Kobe Bryant won one in 2018.
