The 2020 Academy Awards is happening next week and fans of the late Kobe Bryant can expect to see a special tribute for the basketball legend.
“We can confirm that he will be acknowledged in the telecast,” a representative told Variety. Kobe will be included in the In Memoriam montage but the source added there may also be a separate tribute planned for him.
Kobe, who recently passed away in a helicopter crash along with daughter Gianna, won an Oscar in 2018 for the animated short film Dear Basketball.
