Abstract: Light curve and nebular spectral models are constructed for SN 1998bw, which is a prototype of very energetic supernovae (hypernovae) linked to a Gamma-Ray Burst. The models include both spherical and aspherical cases in order to judge earlier suggestions that SN 1998bw might be significantly aspherical. We find that an aspherical model can account for the optical light curve and nebular spectra, while spherical models have severe problems in reproducing these observations.
