Filed under: ZportzBrody JennerAwardzCaitlyn Jenner

Brody Jenner thinks Caitlyn's award is a huge deal!

How sweet!

Caitlyn Jenner will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at this year's ESPYS later this month. And when she walks out onto the stage to accept the honor, her son Brody Jenner is really hoping to be there for her time to shine.

He revealed at the SpyChatter event last night at The Argyle Hollywood:

"I would love to be there to support my father. It'd be a great thing. I'll be there to support Caitlyn 100 percent. It's a huge deal."

The 31-year-old explained that his support extends far beyond this sports-centric award show. He discussed how he feels about Caitlyn's transition, and how it's made his family better:

"It's been incredible. I'm not going to sit here and say it's been the easiest thing in the world, but it helped me in a lot of ways. It helped the family in a lot of ways just to be incredibly open."

He also expressed how thrilled he is that the former Olympian can finally be comfortable with herself, and how everyone should feel the same:

"I think everybody should go through life — because it is very short — being the person that they truly are and who they want to be."

Awww!

We're so happy to see Brody being so supportive of Caitlyn, especially since the two haven't had the best relationship in the past!

Bob Costas DOES NOT Think Caitlyn Jenner Should Receive This Year's Arthur Ashe Courage Award At The ESPYS!

Filed under: ZportzAwardzBruce JennerCaitlyn Jenner

Bob Costas thinks Caitlyn Jenner should not be receiving the prestigious courage award.

It's not that Bob Costas doesn't support Caitlyn Jenner — he does — he just doesn't support ESPN's decision to award her the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at this year's ESPYS.

[ Video: Watch Michael Sam Accept The Arthur Ashe Award! ]

He called in to The Dan Patrick Show to explain why he's criticizing the sports network's choice, saying:

"It's a tabloid play. In the broad world of sports, I'm pretty sure they could've found — and this is not anything against Caitlyn Jenner — I'm pretty sure they could've found someone who is much closer to [being] actively involved in sports who would've been deserving of what that award represents."

The broadcaster accused ESPN of making a "crass exploitation play," but didn't intend any disrespect to Caitlyn.

In fact, he commended her bravery. He just feels the award should go to someone who's more recently active in the sports world, explaining:

"That's not to say that it doesn't take some measure of personal courage to do what Caitlyn Jenner has done, but I think every year we look across the landscape of sports and we find prominent people and kids in high school and amateur athletes who I think more closely fit the description of what they're looking for — or should be looking for there."

Bob may not think Caitlyn was the right pick for the trophy, but he's still very happy for her, that she's finally able to live her life the way she wants:

"Bruce Jenner, who I did not know well, I always had a cordial and pleasant relationship with. I wish Caitlyn Jenner well, and anyone — even if most of us do not fully understand it — anyone seeking to find the identity they're comfortable with and to live the happiest possible life without intentionally hurting anyone else…I think we're moving toward a more tolerant society, and that's all for the good, and I wish Caitlyn all the happiness in the world and all the peace of mind in the world."

What do U think? Was Caitlyn the best choice for the award?

Or is ESPN just pandering for ratings?

If you've got an award for the most courageous, hardworking, positive person out there, this year it should be going to Robin Roberts. Hands down.
