Hot Guys of the Critics’ Choice Awards: who would you rather?

Here are your “Hot Dudes of The Critics’ Choice Awards”. Take them and do what you want to them. If we’re talking about pure, unadulterated lust, the only dude I’m really into among this group is Edgar Ramirez (from Zero Dark Thirty), who is FINE. I’m also into Daniel Day-Lewis, but it’s a more respectful, conservative lust. Like, I don’t want to bang him senseless. I want to have a drink with him and make him recite poetry to me. Just like in yesterday’s “Hot Dudes of the People’s Choice Awards,” I’m trying something new here – I’m just putting all of the dudes up at once without commenting in between.

I made Ben Affleck the headliner because I thought he handled himself really, really well last night. He won Best Director for Argo, and Argo won Best Picture too, so Ben got to be on stage twice last night, the same day he was publicly snubbed for a “Best Director” Oscar nomination. Instead of whining about it or being a big baby, Ben actually handled everything with a great deal of class and maturity. Maybe this is his Oscar Campaign 2.0: Humility & Grace Version. Ben seemed genuinely surprised to win Best Director, and his speech was lovely. He even namechecked his kids and his wife (as an afterthought at the end, of course). But where was Jennifer Garner? She’s the one who was probably the most upset about his Oscar snub! She stayed home to weep.

As for the rest of them… I’m including photos of John Hawkes (nominated for The Sessions and also snubbed for an Oscar nom), Bradley Cooper (he won big!), Daniel Day Lewis (God, he looked good), Edgar Ramirez (HOT), Eddie Redmayne (hands down, the Best Dressed Man of the awards season), Ian Somerhalder and his creepy face, and Matthew McConaughey, who is slowly regaining some weight and some hotness.

    could you toss in some Liev Schreiber, just to tickle my biscuit, pretty please????

  2. Eleonor says:

    Ooh Daniel Day Lewis, to me will always be one of the hottest men on earth.

  3. Marianne says:

    Ben did kind of throw a joke towards the Academy. I thought it was hilarious, but at the same time I wouldn’t agree with the statement that he handled it with class and humility.

    But I thought it was great nonetheless. And was kind of happy that everyone stood up for him.

    • Jean says:

      I agree. I felt that he was sending the academy a diss because you know the Oscars are the elite awards and everything else is second place. I really didn’t like his shirt tail hanging over his pants. I mean, who thinks of the Critics Choice Awards?

  4. lori says:

    How many days has Bradley Cooper been sleeping in that suit. I hate that the men get to recycle their clothes so much and women are crucified for clothing choices. Least Cooper could have ironed or steamed his jacket.

  5. serena says:

    I’m kind of sick of Bradley Cooper, frankly I don’t get his appeal. I’d like to put him into a box with Anne Hathaway and send it out of the world, since they’re pissing me off to no end.

  6. Miss Kiki says:

    Ben would still get it a) for the sake of nostalgia and b) It would bring me a step closer to Matt.

    Ian Somerhalder is like a distorted Matt Bomer, that is no way an insult.

    Matthew McConaughey- I’ll always have a soft spot for him (pun intended)

    RedCarp is smashing it again though. Delightful little Eton boy that he is, he is very quickly earning a prized place in my pants.

  7. Lizzie says:

    I can’t help it. I have a major crush on Ben Affleck. He’s hot.

  8. GoodCapon says:

    Eddie R with the velvet suit strikes again! :D

    With the exception of a few, the men here don’t have a patch on the others featured on the People’s Choice Awards post.

  9. QQ says:

    Haha Bradley put product in his hair and stopped the Middle Part: He’ll be damned if he is gonna get accused of Having Bret Michaels Doll Hair during Oscar Campaing!!

    DDL is Totally Doing it Mmmmmmm

  10. Jenna says:

    Eww. Freaking no one. Ian by default? Bleh.

  11. Chatcat says:

    I just can’t…well DDL would be a yes but for that I want the whole package…the romancing, witty conversation and great sex and that is not in the rules of this thread, so I shall walk away since no others will do for me.

  12. Post-Its says:

    I hate skinny pants on men.

  13. brin says:

    I’m so glad Ben won after the Academy’s snub. DDL still does it for me!

  14. NYC_girl says:

    I only find Affleck attractive in his Argo role. Here, not so much. I liked his shaggy hair in the movie and was so hot for him.

  15. Jenny says:

    Daniel Day-Lewis. Since he does not do the whole campaign thing, he is just so much more appealing and has been beautiful for years and years.

  16. elceibeno08 says:

    Matthew is out of the best looking guy competition right now. He has to gain back all the weight he lost for his last movie. Matthew is so thin he looks like Marc Anthony’s American cousin.

  17. carrie says:

    Edgar Ramirez’s tie is very colorful (my grandfather probably had the same tie in 70′s)

  18. carrie says:

    Ben Affleck,John Hawke and Matthew McConaughey bought their tux at the same Fashion designer (Gucci?)

    Cooper loves his Tom Ford grey suit

  19. Migdalia says:

    With the exception of Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck none of those guys were hott. Did someone mention Liev?? Yes please.

    And ugh Ian Somerhalder only looks good from far away and with lighter hair for sure. I don’t get his appeal and what’s with the heavy amount of makeup??

  20. oh dear says:

    i like the suit ian is wearing, very old school. and it looks pretty warm lol

  21. tabasco says:

    Mr. Redmayne, please and thank youuu!! Ben has never done it for me, but y’know, I’m feeling charitable and kink of curious and he looks alright in these pics, so I’m going to say that I’d take him for a test drive.

  22. handsome man saved me from the monsters says:

    None of these people are my choice. I saw hemsworth, bale and phoenix mentioned – I’d rather see those pics!

  23. j.eyre says:

    “Eddie Redmayne (hands down, the Best Dressed Man of the awards season)” –

    Gosh Kaiser, that sounds like an award category… you know, if Celebitchy had awards… Sweet Dee? Get on this…

  24. Jayna says:

    Ben Affleck. Why? First off, the guy is extremely intelligent and has an interest in many areas, so dinner would be interesting. He has such broad shoulders. Talk, dark, and handsome. I love dark, thick hair on a man. He has a self-deprecating humor, which I love. He seems like he would be great in bed. Lastly, when he drinks a little he is a very touchy, feely affectionate guy and I love an affectionate guy. So my free hall pass affair goes to Ben, because I think I would leave a happy camper.

    • Lauren says:

      Ben does look hot, but his thick-dark hair is a carefully crafted manrug. Why is his wife not there? Please, no more excuses–if Ben were my husband i would be there to support him.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I’m with you Jayna…I love, love, love Ben…and why does everyone think everything he does is for show…I think he truly loves his family!! And of all those people who thought Matt damon must have written most of Good will hunting…he co=wrote the mostly panned Promised Land…while Ben has co=written the screenplays for Gone baby gone, the town and Argo…I’m thinking Ben is the better writer…I will accept that MD is the better actor, but Ben is a better writer, director, and is much hotter!!!

  25. Esmom says:

    Eddie is cute but I can’t with his hair…some of it is swept back and some of it is swept forward…looks dumb. As someone commented on another site, “take a stand, man!” Lol.

    I find Ian hot. He doesn’t look his best here with that corpse-y makeup but I just re-watched the first season of Lost and he was adorable.

  26. MJ says:

    Daniel Day Lewis looks FINE. Sometimes he does it for me, and sometimes he doesn’t.

    John Hawkes is SUCH a babe and a really underrated actor, although that seems to be changing with The Sessions. He looks amazing for 53.

    I will begrudgingly admit that Affleck looks good here. That is all.

    Ian Somerhalder is scary looking. He’s a walking billboard for the dangers of too much plastic surgery.

  27. Suzanne says:

    All these guys have tremendous jawlines…and chins! Not my idea of drop dead good looking…any of them…I’m getting tired of the men being prettier than the women in Hollywood! And Matthew looks horrible. He needs to gain back his weight. He appears to be terminally ill….still!

  28. stellalovejoydiver says:

    Christian Bale and JGL were also there, why aren´t the not included.
    Also I find Benh Zeitlin, director of Beasts, kind of hot.

  29. StaCat1 says:

    FINALLY a post about the guys….
    Not a fan of Eddie redMayne’s suit…not sure what the intended look they were going for.

    Ben looked great..suit fit well. Daniel is looking a bit ragged. But it happens to all of us eventually.

  30. Jess says:

    Christian Bale was there! Damn he looked good too.

  31. Jayna says:

    I have to say I watched the movie The Words. It’s a good little at-home movie and Bradley is decent. But then appears Jeremey Irons halfway through the movie and you see what true brilliance is as an actor.

  32. insomniac says:

    Does DDL have a portrait of himself in the closet that’s doing his aging for him? I’ve been watching him in movies and crushing out on him since I was a teenager (and I’m several decades removed from that time), and he still looks fantastic.

  33. CaliYalie says:

    I think Ben is apparent and GROSS. His whole schtick with the kids writing on his hand was an extension or mimic of his own pathetic Oscar catering (i.e. trotting out Jennifer and the kids for “happy” pap pics, and his attempts in recent interviews to portray a happy household). It’s too bad I find him pretentious, because otherwise, he is totally my type and I would be fangirling all over him. Bummer.

  34. eloisa says:

    I am with you, Edgar is Hot. And he is a great actor and very smart, he speaks 5 languages and had a degree in communications.
