Kobe Bryant Cheered despite rape case, Seacrest shunned by some

Kobe Bryant celebrated an amazing victory Sunday night … winning an Oscar and, incredibly, the celebrities in the audience had a case of selective amnesia.1728864287001450472_351564405.jpg

Kobe took home the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film for “Dear Basketball.” The audience cheered Kobe … some even rose to their feet for a standing O.

Interesting … considering the majority of the audience were wearing Time’s Up pins. You may recall — although a lot of the people who came out after the ceremony didn’t — Kobe was arrested in 2003, charged and brought to trial for rape. The case fell apart when the alleged victim stopped cooperating with prosecutors. Kobe subsequently settled for a reported $5 million, though he denies paying her a cent.1728606578142490720_351564405

According to TMZ, Kobe was Teflon at the awards ceremony. Not so for Ryan Seacrest , who was shunned by some celebs even though he hasn’t been sued, arrested, charged — and was cleared by an E! investigation.

And James Franco was essentially exiled from the Oscars — again not arrested, charged, nothing.
