The actress, who plays AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Welton in the football-based comedy series, later presented the best championship performance award alongside American football player Odell Beckham Jr.

Boyega wore a blood-red suit with an open white collar and later presented an award alongside rapper Lil Wayne.

The Star Wars actor discussed the new trailer for his coming film Breaking with Variety, and said it had been "incredible" to work with the late Michael K Williams on the project.

Glow star Alison Brie wore a partially see-through skirt and black top, with her midriff exposed and multi-coloured floral detailing.

The basketball superstar hosted the event and made a lighthearted jab at fellow player LeBron James in his opening remarks.

Actor Jon Hamm, who recently starred alongside Tom Cruise and Miles Teller in Top Gun: Maverick, arrived in a standard tuxedo with partner Anna Osceola.
