Before taking home the Academy Award for Best Original Song with John Legend for "Glory," Common was already presented with a shiny gold object that every sneakerhead would gladly take over the Oscar statuette.

Peep the solid gold Air Jordan 1 that Common was gifted thanks to Los Angeles-based artist Matthew Sena, who is the same designer behind those crazy bronze Air Jordan sculptures. The piece was a pre-Oscar gift for Common, who can now proudly set the Js side by side with his Oscar award.

Now, let's just see if Usher and Drake can top this.
