When celebrities and movie stars hit the red carpet, their choice of attire is usually significant.

Some outfits are trendy, others are throwbacks and on Sunday at the Academy Awards one outfit even included a shout-out to Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Sean Fine, who along with his wife won the Oscar for best documentary short, sported some of Griffin's patented burgundy and gold socks on the red carpet.

The socks said, "no pressure no diamonds," which is one of Griffin's favorite sayings. Fine is a third-generation Washingtonian, and as Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post pointed out, his affinity for the Redskins runs deep. His grandfather, Nate Fine, was a legendary Redskins photographer.

Griffin has been known to wear colorful and inspirational socks on big occasions, and he even sported superman-themed socks to the 2011 Heisman Trophy ceremony.

Fine's winning film "Inocente" is about a homeless teen who pursues her dream of becoming an artist.
