The ex-basketball player's contemporaries took to Twitter to congratulate him.

"Dear Basketball" is based on the National Basketball Association great's 2015 poem, published on the "Player's Tribune" website, announcing his final season in the game.

The award was presented to Bryant alongside veteran Disney animator, Glen Keane.

"I'm so excited to see what God has in store for us as a family now that one chapter is closing and new ones are opening", she said.

After last year's catastrophe surrounding the Oscar winners' envelopes, a crack team was put in charge of last night's cards. He said to the Hollywood Reporter: "It's bittersweet because when that switch happened, I didn't enjoy it".

Bryant's award earned him praise from illustrious members of the National Basketball Association community including former teammate-turned-rival Shaquille O'Neal who, perhaps for the first time in his career, admitted being jealous of the former Los Angeles Lakers' guard.

When he initially told people he wanted to write and tell stories after he retired from basketball, the 39-year-old revealed that he didn't get the most positive reactions.

In February, Fox News host Laura Ingraham made headlines when she said that National Basketball Association pro LeBron James shouldn't speak about politics. "Don't think that you want to be a writer - that's cute", Bryant told the Undefeated's Kelley L. Carter before the Oscars got underway.

"I feels better than winning the championship, to be honest with you".

"I don't know if it's possible", he said, as reported by The Hill. To be here right now and to have like. a sense of validation is. this is insane, man.

Sports icon Kobe Bryant might be celebrating his first Academy Award victory, but some supporters of the #MeToo movement aren't.

And he wants to do "more, more", Bryant said, saying his eponymous studio was working on a series of five novels the team hopes to pitch as feature-length films.

National security advisor HR McMaster rumored to be leaving White House
However, sources tell Garrett that the tension regarding McMaster is real, and that an exit strategy may now be in the works. Secretary of Defense James Mattis' office referred all questions regarding personnel matters to the White House.

Understandably so, social media users had a lot to say about Bryant's Academy Award win, which proved once again that time is still not up for alleged sexual predators in the Hollywood. "You have to learn the basics of things", he said of his foray into film.
