Dear Gossips,

On Monday I wrote about PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2014 and was considering scrapping my annual SMA handicap feature this year because, at the time, it was so obvious to be me that it would either be Matthew McConaughey or Chris Pratt.  Read Full Intro

In my opinion, Hot Harry is the only one who has any business challenging my Chris Pratt prediction. Arguments for: -Harry turned 30 in September, just meeting that age criteria, and showing a lot more maturity the last couple of years. -He’s been so visible, so helpful, so committed in his official duties, and much more present than his brother, which is why he was recently voted the most popular royal, even more than the Queen. Full Story

Prediction: Chris Pratt

Arguments for: -Guardians Of The Galaxy, and it came out in August! Not May, not June, not July…but August! It sounds absurd to say it now, but people were surprised at how it performed. And it did perform, making Chris Pratt a STAR -He’s going to follow that up with Jurassic World; that’ll be another monster. Full Story

Robert Downey Jr

Arguments for: -How has he never been the Sexiest Man Alive? He’s the biggest movie star in the world right now. -The Avengers comes out in a few months. It’ll be MASSIVE. -Everyone loves him, loves him, loves him and they love his comeback story -Stable family life, just had a baby, babies are irresistible – especially with an exclusive on the cover of PEOPLE magazine? -Nerd vote -Dude vote Arguments against: -The Judge -He doesn’t need it. Full Story

Channing Tatum

Arguments for: -Super popular -Super nice -Promoting Foxcatcher right now and angling for Oscar consideration. -Has become a Hollywood power player; has worked hard to get here and no one resents him for it. People want to see Channing Tatum succeed. -No scandals and is always honest about who he is. Full Story

Benedict Cumberbatch

Arguments for: -Cumhards want it. The Batchies are passionate. They could drive sales of the magazine. -Oscar campaigning for The Imitation Game and Harvey Weinstein is on his side. -Dr Strange rumours. No word yet on who it is but if he is Marvel’s newest superhero, it could be a well-timed announcement to start building anticipation -He’s a good actor with a nice voice Arguments against: -Cumhards are mad at him for getting engaged -He’s internet famous but is he widely famous? Go back to what I said about attraction being a bubble and the internet giving illusions about how universally appealing or popular someone or something is. Full Story

Brad Pitt

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 7, 2014 17:14:47 November 7, 2014 17:14:47

Arguments for: -He and Angelina Jolie got married -Award season. A push for Fury -His hair looks better -His activism: Brad Pitt doesn’t just sit around and smoke weed anymore (that much) -He’s devoted to his children. The MiniVan Majority loves that. -He’s a two time SMA. Full Story

George Clooney

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 7, 2014 17:06:02 November 7, 2014 17:06:02

Arguments for: -The MiniVan Majority always wanted him to stop being a bachelor -Wedding of the year -His wife is SO interesting! -His activism: George has become more than a movie star. So if you’re looking for “sexy” beyond just having a good body and a handsome face, he’s your man -There hasn’t been an SMA over 50 since Harrison Ford in 1999. Full Story
