As Seth Meyers hosted the ESPY Awards last night and rocked countless jokes about the ailing L.A. Dodgers’ financial fiasco and the kissing couple in Vancouver, there were also other highlights from the night. Whether it was Lindsey Vonn’s request for a photo with Justin Bieber, Serena Williams nod to female sports or Justin Timberlake’s quintessential comedic timing, it’s all good. Find out the winners after the jump!

When tennis sensation Serena took the podium to open for Brooklyn Decker presenting the Best Female Athlete, Serena explained, “When I was growing up girls who played sports were called Tomboys.” She went onto say “how far female athletes have come.”

On a lighter note, Justin Timberlake joined the stage with Aaron Rodgers to present the Best Male College Athlete. During the funny bit, Justin said, “You and me. Dream team. Back together again. What a journey we have been on.  All the way to the Super Bowl and we won it! We did it. We won!”

Aaron responded, “I don’t know what you are talking about,” and Justin tried to remind him, “You remember man! It all started right here at the ESPYs!” After showing a clip of Justin and Aaron at the 2010 Espys, Justin said, “See don’t you remember? I told you focus and then you did and then we won the Super Bowl and we both went to Disneyworld together. Remember that day? No? You were afraid of the teacups so I held your hand? And we had cotton candy from the same stick and we both met Cinderella. It was magical.”
