In their absence, the writer and co-director of the beautiful movie "Hair Love," Matthew A. Cherry went on-stage to receive the award along with co-producer Karen Rupert Toliver of Sony Pictures Animation.

The Wade duo had also invited a special guest to the Academy Awards, DeAndre Arnold. Arnold was invited by the "Hair Love" team after he was suspended from his high school after he refused to cut his locks.

THE SPECIAL GUEST

Arnold, an eighteen-year-old high school student from Texas, was denied the opportunity to walk his high-school graduation unless he cut-off his dreadlocks. During a segment in "CBS This Morning," Wade also expressed his support to the teenager, before inviting him and his mother to the Oscars. 

"We love the way that you carry yourself and we wanted to do something special for you."

Arnold has also received support from Alicia Keys, who granted him the support of twenty thousand dollars from Shutterfly so that he could pursue his dream of becoming a vet. 

Ellen DeGeneres even invited the Texas high school student over to her show to share his story and even went on to request the school board to let Arnold walk his graduation.
