Kobe Bryant to Be Honored at 2020 Oscars

Hollywood’s biggest night is bound to honor basketball legend, Kobe Bryant.

The 2020 Oscars Ceremony is getting near, but that doesn’t mean there is no more room for something new on the telecast. The Academy will pay tribute to the fallen NBA Legend, Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on January 26.

Her 13-year-old daughter, Gianna “Gigi” Maria-Onore Bryant was also one of the nine people who tragically died in the crash, which is still under investigation.

In 2018, it can be recalled that Kobe won an Oscar Award for Best Animated Short Film. He grabbed the award for the movie “Dear Basketball” which was based on a poem he personally wrote to declare his retirement from the NBA. Glean Keane was the one who directed and animated the film and was also known for his great work on Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Little Mermaid.

When Kobe was announced the winner of the said category, he was overwhelmed over his win. In his speech, he said that winning the award feels better than winning the championship. Kobe shared that growing up, he always dreamed of winning championships and works really hard to make that dream come to life; winning the award makes him come out of the field.

In addition, he shared that a lot of people were asking him what will he do when he retires and he’d say that he want to be a writer telling those stories in his mind. He mentioned that he gets a lot of cute comments and some said that they think he will still come back playing after all that. For Kobe, winning the award is a sense of validation that he can do more than what he already has. The message was heard by Laura Dern, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron and Cynthia Erivo who were also in attendance during the event.

With the Oscars 2020 nearing, the NBA superstar will be inducted into Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, as part of its 2020 class. A spokesperson for The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame said that the Hall of Fame unites with the rest of the basketball world in bereavement on the heartbreaking death of Kobe Bryant. They also give their sincerest condolences to the Bryant Family and everyone who was affected by the crash. As reported before, celebrities and friends of the family have been paying tribute to Kobe’s death.
