2014 ESPY Awards

Ever since 1993, the ESPY Awards have been highlighting the very best of the best when it comes to sports, giving you plenty of reasons to head out and absorb the excitement and catch some of the biggest stars around sports. Over the years, athletes like Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Ken Griffey Jr., Drew Brees, Lindsey Vonn, Diana Taurasi, Serena Williams and many more have taken major awards at the ESPYs, and those competing in the various categories tend to be the very best of the best. Come out to the Nokia Theatre in L.A. and you'll be amazed at the star power, the great categories and the entire spectacle, as this is a celebration of sports that you're not likely to duplicate.

But this is also not just another one of those stuffy awards shows, as it is a great entertainment in its own right. In 2013, Mad Men actor Jon Hamm was the presenter, joining a long list of popular celebrities who have stepped up to do the honor. Other presenters over the years include Jimmy Kimmel, Dennis Miller, Jamie Foxx, Justin Timberlake, Samuel L. Jackson and many more, and you never know which star is going to host the show next. In 2014, the honor falls to popular musician Drake, a rapper/actor/songwriter who is sure to have the crowd amped throughout the show. If you've never been out to the ESPY Awards, there has never been a better time to change that.


ESPY Awards Event Info

Though sports are obviously the centerpiece of the ESPYs, there is a lot more going on that just patting the backs of the best athletes of today. Far to the contrary, the ESPYs also dominates a major portion of the proceeds from the event to the V Foundation, the charity established in honor of the inspirational coach Jimmy Valvano. With charity a main focus, audiences get a chance to watch some of the brightest superstars of yesterday, today and tomorrow as they hit the stage in a great celebration of sport.

Categories at the ESPYs also provide lots of different opportunities for recognition, with some of the biggest awards being for Best Male and Female Athlete of the Year, Best Team, Best Championship Performance, Best Breakthrough Athlete and many more, giving your favorite players and teams lots of different opportunities to be recognized for their talents and hard work. Once again in 2014, you can count on the Nokia Theatre to be loaded to the brim with excitement surrounding the ESPYs, which isn't likely to die down anytime in the near future.


The ESPY Experience

We all know that seeing a major sporting event can be as good as it gets when it comes to live entertainment, but the ESPYs offer a different type of night out that is also known to satisfy the most ardent of sports fans. Join your fellow sports fans for a great show and you'll see why this has become the premier sports awards show over the two decades of existence. Will your favorite team or player take down the hardware? Though we know you could just watch from home or catch the highlights of the winners, it's a completely different thing to be in the same room as the stars as the best of the best are honored.


ESPY History

Over the years, this is an awards show that has evolved and added pieces to the equation, but the essential foundation remains the same. Though the Best Athlete and Best Team awards are some of the most hyped, there are also plenty of other awards that recognize different types of contributions. One is the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, given to an athlete who has also made a considerable humanitarian contribution. Jimmy V himself took down the award in 1993 and other award winners have included Muhammad Ali, Pat/Kevin Tillman, Nelson Mandela and Billie Jean King among others.

The beauty of this show is also the tremendous array of different awards, with drivers, golfers, bowlers, swimmers and more also getting celebrated as much as the major sports, showing that this is the type of event that recognizes talents of all kinds. With a variety of different categories that bring the attention of fans, this is one of those awards shows that continues to grow in prominence from year to year as the best of the best come to L.A. to celebrate the entire culture of sports.


ESPY Trivia

Did you know that Tiger Woods won Best Breakthrough Athlete and Best Athlete in back-to-back years?

In 1997, it was fairly obvious that Tiger Woods was on the rise, making him the fairly easy choice to be the Breakthrough Athlete of the Year. But Woods was far from done, as he continued the momentum and ended up splitting the Best Athlete Award the following year with Ken Griffey Jr., a close friend of Woods'. Tiger would maintain his dominance on the golf course long enough for him to win the Best Athlete of the Year Award solo four more times.
