Kayso The Shorty Awards are a thing, and they’ve actually been a thing for like seven years, and once upon a time three years ago Johnny was nominated for a Shorty as Best Athlete on social media. And this year he’s going to be presenting at the awards ceremony, which is next Monday, April 20, at the TimesCenter in NYC, and there’s a livestream so yay we can all see him! (UPDATE: red carpet livestream begins at 5:30 pm ET; awards show begins at 7:30 pm ET.)

Apparently you have to sign up to get the link to the livestream, so please go here and click on “Sign Up to Watch the Livestream” to do just that. While you’re there, please enjoy their website, which has some great photos and hilarious quotes from past Shorty winners, including Will Ferrell, George Takei, and Ricky Gervais. So this is kind of a big deal, and I’m thrilled to see Johnny be a part of it. Can’t wait to watch him on the livestream!
