According to Jeff Smith, the vice president of entertainment at MaggieVision Productions, the company behind ESPY Awards, the only awards that will be given out this year are the “narrative awards,” highlighting narratives of public services or courage.
“We can’t really give out a best team award when the teams haven’t finished their seasons, and you can’t have a best moment when there was no Masters or Wimbledon,” Smith explained. “It wouldn’t be fair of us to anoint winners for things when everybody didn’t exist on a level playing field.”
