Kobe just won an award that nobody in the NBA has.
NBA legend Kobe Bryant just received a gold award that his counterparts can’t say they have and many probably won’t achieve. The former Laker won an Oscar for Best Animated Short for “Dear Basketball.”
Kobe made history for not just being the only basketball player to win an Oscar but also the first black nominee to win in this category. After 90 years of the Academy Awards, we still have more work to do to make the awards more diverse.
