Kobe Bryant wins Emmy for “Dear Basketball”

Another day, another award for Kobe Bryant.

Two months ago, the Los Angeles Lakers legend won his first Academy Award, a best animated short award for “Dear Basketball,” a film based on Bryant’s poem written to announce his retirement in 2016.

Now, “Dear Basketball” is being honored again, as Bryant’s team won an Emmy on Tuesday night for Outstanding Post-Produced Graphic Design. The award was accepted by a representative for Verizon.

Although Bryant’s pet project, “Dear Basketball” also features the work of heavy hitters like Glen Keane and John Williams.

Kobe’s wife Vanessa Bryant took to Instagram to congratulate her husband on the achievement.

Congratulations baby!!!! 😘❀️@KobeBryant #Emmy πŸ†

“Dear Basketball” went up against heavy hitters like CBS’ Thursday Night Football, NBC’s Sunday Night Football, and ESPN’s Monday Night Football.

Congratulations to Kobe Bryant who is now halfway to an EGOT and is the only person ever to win an Oscar, an Emmy, an MVP and five championships, probably.
