Odell Beckham Jr. is becoming a fixture at the ESPYS.

The 25th ESPYS (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award) took place Wednesday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. For a third straight year, the Giants wide receiver attended the awards show, which brings together the biggest names in sports to celebrate their achievements. The show was hosted by two-time Super Bowl champion and five-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning.

Beckham presented the ESPY for Best Play, an award he knows a little something about. The Baton Rouge native took home the honor back in 2015 for "The Catch", a play that launched him into stardom. Beckham presented Wednesday night with actress Dove Cameron, and the ESPY went to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for his sideline pass to Jared Cook against the Cowboys. Beckham also presented last year for Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year.

When he wasn't on stage presenting, Beckham was walking the red carpet with his mom, Heather Van Norman, and hanging out with Olympic gold medalist and New Jersey native, Laurie Hernandez. The two took a photo that Hernandez posted on Instagram and Twitter. Hernandez competed as a member of the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team at the 2016 Summer Olympics, winning gold in the team event and silver on the balance beam.

Beckham wasn't the only Giant to take his mom to the ESPYS. Cornerback Eli Apple was there as well with his mom, Annie. Apple also got to meet and take a photo with Jarrius Robertson, who took home the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance. Robertson, 15, is a lifelong New Orleans Saints fan who is battling a rare liver disease called biliary atresia.
