Arguments for:
-Do we really have to do this?
-He’s SO f-cking hot
-He’s SO f-cking cute
-He’s SO f-cking talented and his talent is versatile  – he can sing, he can improv, he can do drama, comedy, action, indie, sketch
-Nocturnal Animals comes out right around the time PEOPLE announces the Sexiest Man Alive. It could be a boost to the film that some say is a contender for a few nominations.

Arguments against:
-The SMA is not Jake Gyllenhaal’s thing. If he wanted it, please, they’d pay him to accept it. But can you see him saying yes to the crown? And doing a photo shoot with his eyes smoldering at the camera? And giving an exclusive interview talking about why he’s so sexy?
-The SMA has become kind of a joke in some circles. And while Jake has a great sense of humour, he’s also pretty serious about being taken seriously for his work. I’m not sure this is the kind of thing he’d want to joke around about. I feel like he would be embarrassed.

Odds: 30 to 1
