The biggest stars in the world of sports were in Los Angeles on Wednesday for the 2019 ESPY Awards!

Fresh off their World Cup win, the U.S. Women's Soccer Team were the stars of the show, supporting co-captain Alex Morgan, who was nominated for Best Female Athlete, as well as Best Play nominee Julie Ertz. Other fan-favorite nominees included Serena Williams, up for her 10th Best Female Tennis Player award, and Tiger Woods, in search of his first Best Male Golfer honor since 2013.

Hosted by Tracy Morgan, this year's ceremony also honored the Best Upset, Best Viral Sports Moment, Best Esports Moment, and more. Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell was presented with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award for his work on and off the court, which reflects the "spirit, strength and courage" of the late tennis great, who used his sports celebrity to advocate for human rights.

The 2019 ESPY Awards air at 8 p.m. ET live on ABC or streaming on the ABC app. The three-hour pre-show can be seen live on ESPN.
