LOS ANGELES -- Drew Brees was the big winner at the ESPY Awards, collecting four trophies, including male athlete of the year on Wednesday night. The New Orleans Saints quarterback also won best championship performance, NFL player and shared the team award with his Super Bowl champion colleagues.

Brees was chosen male athlete over Kobe Brynat, LeBron James, Jimmie Johnson and Albert Pujols. All but James picked up trophies in other categories. Gold medal-winning skiier Lindsey Vonn won female athlete of the year honors during the show hosted by "Saturday Night Live" comic Seth Meyers that aired live on ESPN from the Nokia Theatre. She beat out Serena Williams and basketball players Maya Moore of Connecticut and Diana Taurasi of the Phoenix Mercury.

Vonn was also chosen best female Olympian.
Landon Donovan of the U.S. national soccer team picked up three trophies, for best moment in a World Cup game against Algeria, best MLS player and the performance under pressure award. Phil Mickelson ended Tiger Woods' five-year run as best male golfer, denying Woods a record 23rd career ESPY.

Phil Jackson of the two-time defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers was named best coach, while Bryant won best NBA player.
James was booed when a montage of male athlete nominees was shown. He didn't attend the 18th annual awards. Meyers zinged James' decision to leave Cleveland as a free agent and sign with the Miami Heat.

"Did it really need to be an hour?" Meyers said. "Somebody time me. Miami. How long did that take? A second." Actors Steve Carell and Paul Rudd spoofed James' hour-long special on ESPN in a pre-taped bit that culminated in Carell announcing he had chosen to eat dinner at Outback instead of his longtime haunt Chili's.
