Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 06:59:05 November 15, 2010 06:59:05

Arguments for Jon Hamm:- Sigh. He’s perfect. He really really is.- Don Draper, in short time, has become a television icon. He and Don Draper are inextricably linked. And Don Draper is a Dude. Dudes approve of Don Jon Draper Hamm. - There’s the tv thing, but there’s also been a well planned foray into film, complemented by a sense of humour that is so engaging and charming and so silly, he’s hitting every single checkbox for sexy across all age groups- Blemish-free. Full Story

Colin Firth

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 06:50:46 November 15, 2010 06:50:46

Arguments for: - His performance in The King’s Speech should earn him another Oscar nomination, making it two years in a row. And the timing was similar for Hugh Jackman two years ago like this too, as Australia was just about to open wide when the SMA was announced.- He’s Mr Darcy AND Mark Darcy, he’s Love Actually, there’s an undeniable widespread affection that women feel for Colin Firth very closely associated with how they felt when they watched those movies, and these movies are among all time favourites. Full Story

Arguments for:- He now fronts two blockbuster franchises (Iron Man, Sherlock Holmes) and makes hit comedies and will get to work soon on The Avengers. RDJ is now one of the most profitable stars in Hollywood. So if it’s a popularity contest, well, he’s pretty popular.- Clearly then he’s (mostly) forgiven for his past. Full Story

Denzel Washington

Arguments for:- He started the year with The Book of Eli, he’s ending it with Unstoppable. After all these years, Denzel is still selling tickets....- At the movies, and also on Broadway. He just won a Tony Award. You can’t argue that this man is a winner- He is still as handsome and as elegant and distinguished as ever. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 06:23:41 November 15, 2010 06:23:41

Arguments for:- Inception, Shutter Island... this has been a Major Year and he’s already a Major Star. His professional track record is ridiculously impressive. - Somehow, even after Titanic, people take him seriously now. Very seriously. He is as A as A List gets. - I think he looks squidgy around the face. Full Story

Jake Gyllenhaal

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 15, 2010 06:19:12 November 15, 2010 06:19:12

Arguments for:- He’s adorable. (I’m biased, obviously.) But those eyes, and that smile, and the body... it’s all goodness and very American. - He’s selling a movie right now. A movie that supposed to be a crowd pleaser. A movie that will prove to you when you see it that he is indeed a romantic leading man. Full Story
