The 2011 ESPY Awards
Where: Nokia Theatre L.A. Live Who Was There: Aaron Rodgers, Amar'e Stoudemire, Amber Heard, Brian Wilson, Brooklyn Decker, Cee Lo Green, Chris Evans, Clay Matthews, Danica Patrick, Dirk Nowitzki, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Jason Avant, Jason Bateman, Jason Kidd, Jason Sehorn, Jay Leno, Jimmy Johnson, Jonah Hill, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, Kerry Washington, Kevin Love, Kiefer Sutherland, Lindsey Vonn, Maria Sharapova, Mark Cuban, Maura Mandt, Philadelphia Eagles, Rachel Nichols, Ryan Reynolds, Selena Gomez, Serena Williams, Seth Meyers, Shawn Marion, Stuart Scott, Tim Tebow, Tim Thomas. Other Details: It was a showdown last night of epic proportions between the insanely-fit athletes and svelte celebrities as they came together and recognize achievements in sports. For once, Lady Gaga wasn't there to steal the show, nor did Britney and Madonna engage in any kind of lip-lock. Justin Bieber and his PR-endorsed girlfriend, Selena Gomez stepped out together much to the dismay of preteens everywhere. "Entourage" star Emmanuelle Chriqui looked hot as usual presenting an award to Blake Griffin for Best Breakthrough Athlete. The athletes ditched their sweaty workout clothes and cleaned up nicely, but MLB player Brian Wilson was intent on making a statement of his own, showing up in a spandex tuxedo suit. Hope he was comfy in that. [Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams photo via]

Other Details: Theater-goers last night reported seeing a giant green ogre at The Pantages for the Shrek the Musical kid-friendly opening night. It seems Hollywood and its fame-whoring have gotten to the green monster who made sure he was noticed on the red carpet where plenty of celebrities posed with their offspring before sitting down for the show.
