Kobe Bryant may win yet another trophy -- an Oscar

LOS ANGELES (AP) Does Kobe Bryant need another trophy? He might get one - at the Oscars.

Bryant, the retired Los Angeles Lakers star, was nominated in the animated short category for "Dear Basketball," based on a poem he wrote in 2015 announcing his impending retirement from basketball. He was nominated along with veteran Disney animator Glen Keane.

"What??" Bryant responded on Twitter. "This is beyond the realm of imagination. It means so much that the (at)TheAcademy deemed (hash)DearBasketball worthy of contention. Thanks to the genius of (at)GlenKeanePrd & John Williams for taking my poem to this level. It's an honor to be on this team."
