Anthony Mackie Set To Host ESPY Awards 2021: Here Are The Nominees

  



After a strange but understandably virtually distanced 2020 ESPYS, the massive sports awards show is back on track. This year's annual ESPYS will be broadcast live from New York City on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET. Anthony Mackie, who is coming off the huge success of The Falcon and The Winter Solider, will host the award show.
Voting for over 20 categories has been open to fans since June 16. DaBaby, Rob Gronkowski, Taye Diggs, Roy Williams, Tracy Morgan, and Zachary Levi are just a few of the presenters that will be taking the stage.
WNBA star Maya Moore will be awarded the Arthur Ashe Courage Award for helping to free the wrongfully incarcerated Jonathan Irons from prison. Chris Nikic will be presented with The Jimmy V Award for Perseverance. He was the first person with Down Syndrome to complete an Ironman Triathlon.
