Athletes tune into the 88th Academy Awards
Sometimes athletes can't catch a break, but there's always time for the Oscars
Finally, the day we've all been waiting for — the 88th Academy Awards is here. We can all be glued to our televisions and indulge in all the celebrity sightings, to-die for fashion statements and the amazing 2016 Oscar nominations.
Or, maybe we are more excited to see if Leonardo DiCaprio will win his first Oscar? (Spoiler: he won)
Let's take a look at what our favourite athletes are thinking:
You can count on former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson, also known as Ochocinco, to get the award show ball rolling.
