Hot Guys of the Producers Guild Awards: who would you rather (win an Oscar)?

25th Annual Producers Guild Awards

There are only a couple of major awards ceremonies left before the Oscars come to us later than usual, on March 2nd, due to the winter Olympics. This gives me more time to see more of the best picture nominees. Maybe I’ll get over the fact that 12 Years a Slave isn’t sweeping everything, and that Chiwetel Ejiofor hasn’t won a single major acting award. I’m so disappointed in that. The Producers Guild Awards just focus on the films and TV shows, not the actors, so it’s kind of a relief to me that we didn’t have to hear Matthew McConaughey waxing poetic about the nature of genius and the universe again. (He did that, see his SAGs acceptance speech.)

At the Producers Guild Awards, 12 Years tied with Gravity for best picture, which is the first time that has ever happened. (Here’s a list of all the winners.) So it’s possible that 12 Years won’t even win for best picture at the Academy Awards, although I don’t want to think too hard about it. At least Lupita Nyong’o is pretty much a lock for supporting actress, even if Chiwetel continues to get snubbed.

So here’s Brad Pitt with his goofy shaved hair, which is for his role in that war film with the insufferable Shia LaBeouf. My mom and I watched the SAGs together and she actually asked me who Pitt was when she saw the cutaway to him. He looks so different! And he’s so much different from his character in the film he so expertly produced, 12 Years a Slave, when he sported long hair and a beard. I think he looks good, he’s just not my taste.

And here we have Chiwetel, supporting his producer, Pitt, and director, Steve McQueen. He must be exhausted after the SAG Awards Saturday night. I am so rooting for him! He looks so good, as always, but I would love it if he would either shave his beard or just sport some scruff.

Also there was Bryan Cranston, (Breaking Bad won for best drama, yay!) Leonardo DiCaprio, Forest Whittaker, and I’m including newcomer Barkhad Abdi of Captain Philipps. He plays the lead Somali pirate. This is his first and only acting credit so far and he’s been nominated for an Academy Award for best supporting actor. He grew up in Somalia, moved to Minnesota when he was 14 and was driving a limo for a living when he answered the casting call for the film. He calls his Oscar nomination “crazy, in a good way.

    Can Chiwetel’s girlfriend post her skincare regime please?

  2. Leah says:

    Chiwetel looks really cute in these photos. His eyes are so soft.
    Obviously i hope he wins the Oscar, i am still shocked he hasn’t won any of the major awards. Whats that all about?
    Brads not really my type and a bit old, but he looks so much better with the short hair than the long Steven Segal hairdo. He looks quite nice actually. I think he has done so well with producing Z and TYAS in the last year. He is doing a really great job.

  3. Helvetica says:

    Forrest’s outfit for the win. Love his blazer here.

  4. ANDREA1 says:

    Am rooting for TYAS to win best picture at the Academy Awards.. And I really hope to God it does pick up that award even if they decide to shut TYAS down from other categories. Hopefully Lupita gets one but chances are slim since she is a new comer but it will be great if she does win an Academy award!

    • pwal says:

      Personally, I think that Chiwetel will pull an upset. Yes, MM is everybody’s darling right now, but so was Julie Christie (Away from Her)and Lauren Bacall(The Mirror has Two Faces). And then there’s my all-time favorite upset-Judy Holliday (Born Yesterday) over Bette Davis (All About Eve) and Gloria Swanson (Sunset Boulevard), which is not to take anything away from Davis and Swanson’s performances (loved them both), but that category that year was pretty tight.

      I still think that 12YAS will do well on Oscar night, getting best pic, supporting actress and lead actor and even more, especially if the waffling voters will sack up and go see it.

    • L says:

      Lupita winning the SAG was a big deal as that’s the largest pool for the folks that will vote for her for the Oscar. I’m holding out to see how she does with BAFTA’s, Independent Spirit, etc before I give up on her winning.

      American Hustle and 12YAS have been splitting the awards season so far (which is amazing as I though Hustle was super boring), the winner of that will come right down to the wire I think.

  5. Anna says:

    Chewy looked the best by far. I am VERY much enjoying the fact that awards love is being split three-ways this far (between Gravity, 12 and Hustle), with no clear front runner. So exciting! Gonna make waking up at 4am to watch the Oscars so much more worth it!

  6. Dani2 says:

    Rooting for Chiwetel but I wouldn’t mind Leo winning simply because the Academy has been so unfair to him. I just can’t believe that the other 3 times he was nominated, there was always a more deserving performance and everybody knows that not everyone who wins deserves it for that particular year.

  7. SonjaMarmeladova says:

    Brad was never my taste ( too pretty), but he definitely isn’t one of those men who look better with age, like Bryan Cranston is.

    • Zadie says:

      Yep, Bryan aged very nicely.

    • bns says:

      I agree with this whole comment. He looks like he uses botox, too.

    • cs says:

      Are my eyes deceiving me , Are we looking at the same pics? Bryan looks like a red eyed wrinkled old man in these pics. I would never guessed he was still in his 50′s. Brad looks way better. Brad still got it going on at 50 years old and a hot body to boot.
      Men in the service wore their hair buzzed on the sides, I have photos of my father in the Air force with that same cut. Isn’t he filming a WWII movie?

      • lisa2 says:

        I don’t get the talk about the hair when it is for a film a WWII film and totally appropriate. Brad talked about it at the PGA.. because of course they ask him about his hair.. seriously you have the man on the press line and you talk his hair. Anyway he said this..

        Brad Pitt is sounding off on his new haircut!

        The 50-year-old movie star, who debuted a new shaved look at yesterday’s SAG Awards, said he didn’t chop off his locks for aesthetic reasons.

        “It’s for a part,” Pitt told me at tonight’s Producer’s Guild Awards in Beverly Hills, adding with a laugh, “It’s not a choice!”

        so dumb too. because he has had this hair for MONTHS.

  8. Ice Maiden says:

    Other than Chiwetel, none of these men is remotely hot.

  9. V4real says:

    I’m beginning to think these award voters haven’t seen 12 Years or they just feel that its Matt time to win. Matt performance over Chiwetel doesn’t come close. Chiwetel deserves it hands down.

  10. Neuron says:

    Brad Pitt reminds me of Tom Hanks in those pictures.

  11. Bianca says:

    I have a soft spot for Bryan Cranston because he reminds me of my high school Science teacher on whom I and my best friend had a crush! The mere thought makes me all giggly and dumb again.

  12. Mia4S says:

    Chiwetel, you were brilliant, so I’m going to be a bit shallow…shave the beard, I hate it! I thought it was from Z for Zachariah but that’s not filming yet (which is why Chris Pine could shave). Please, you’re usually so pretty! ;-)

  13. Kali says:

    Chiwetel now, forever, always. I just don’t know if he’d ever have a chance like this again

    While Leonardo was really good in “Wolf of Wall Street”, he will absolutely get other chances at Oscar.

    While Matthew M probably won’t have as many chances in the future as Leo will, he seems to be very well liked by his peers and by the industry in general and now that he’s pulled finger and actually realized he’s a good actor instead of being “charming shirtless love interest”, he’ll get recognition in future.

    • Leah says:

      The thing about Chiwetel is that he is quiet and unassuming, he never seeks the spotlight much. Lupita is kind of the break out star of TYAS. She has become the “it girl” that everyone loves, kind of like this years Jennifer Lawrence. While Chiwetel because he doesn’t do as many interviews and red carpet appearances as her, kind of has been more in the back ground. Then you have the fact that Matthew especially and Leo are actively campaigning by doing all the rounds. And i think that accounts for some of why Chiwetel isn’t winning. Never underestimate mutual back slapping and networking, knowing all the right people. Id say the same goes for Fassbender vs Leto. Leto has run a campaign, Fassbender just totally bowed out from the beginning.

      • Kali says:

        You’re so right re the campaigning, it just makes me really sad. I wish he had sucked it up more and done way more press etc. :( I talked to my Dad about this movie the other day and even HE knew about Lupita. Didn’t know about any of the other actors. You’d think that Brad Pitt would’ve been all OVER the place campaigning and hustling on behalf of all the actors/actresses, considering this movie is his baby, but it seems like he’s been quite absent (ie to an average punter that wouldn’t give two s#%^s about things like the SAG’s etc)

      • lower-case deb says:

        i don’t see a lot of campaigning for TYAS (putside of Lupita) at all, even on this site that shows much love for anything Chiwetel, Fassbender, Benedict. Even Cumberbatch was not actively campaigning for TYAS as much as his other projects.

        i get a sense that they’re just happy for the movie to speak for itself. no matter how hard they campaign, the subject matter will be hard to swallow in and on itself, i fear that campaigning will make it sound “preachy”, esp. so soon after Django.

        in addition, in what promotion interviews/hustle material i’ve read, i seem to get a feeling that even the discussions were being steered away from TYAS the movie, towards TYAS the subject matter/discourse, so much so that its a discussion about culture, history and a little about the book and Northup itself. there have been times when i have to check myself i wasn’t reading/watching a book club discussion about TYAS.

        and regarding the amount of Actor Hustle, i just get a feeling that the actors themselves are content with a non-campaign. Even Lupita’s press round feels less of a campaign and more of an “introducing a newcomer around”, and that her fellow castmates are happy to help introduce her around and take the backseat.

        this whole film feels like it has a takes-a-village vibe to it.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think that he’s trying to make it about the film, not about him. Part of it is that white actors get a lot more media attention just on their own, but then Brad’s really famous—the biggest name there. If he and Angelina had walked the red carpet at SAGS or at the GGs (I know she wasn’t there), then it would’ve been the ‘Brangelina show’, not the ’12 YAS’ show.
        I like that he’s stepping back, making a conscious choice to do so. Although I’m sure part of it is that he’s the producer, and they aren’t so visible to the public, like the actors are.
        But I like the whole vibe of how they’re campaigning–it doesn’t seem like they’re pushing one person to the front, to promote it, they’re all doing it, and having fun.

      • The Original G says:

        A Kali. A couple of months ago, contributors were all over this site complaining that Brad would upstage the actors and the story. He hasn’t. It can’t be both ways. TYAS will have ai life, I believe way beyond this year’s Oscars.

      • The Original G says:

        Sorry about the typos. :( I couldn’t get back into my comment.

      • lisa2 says:

        Not sure what people wanted Brad to do exactly. He has been filming Fury for months. That movie just wrapped. Was he suppose to tell David Ayer to shut down a Multi million Dollar film for weeks while he went to kiss asses and that Angie who is directing should run behind schedule to walk a RC for a film that is Brad’s not hers. What exactly were they suppose to do. The principle players have been very front and center. And Plan B Productions has been represented at ever event.

        If Brad was at every event then the talk would have been that he is so hungry for an Oscar and Awards win that he is taking the attention from the “actual stars of the film”. As it stands his choice took the wind out of a lot of people that had their snark ready.

        well he had not been doing that. In fact he has been doing what most Producers do. Stand in the back ground and let the actors shine.

        Some people act as if he had nothing else going on this entire time. We have seen the man on set and with his family. I don’t see the problem. And if the voting bodies have to have their asses kissed to vote for the best film, then we need to end these awards now.

      • pwal says:

        I think that Brad’s tack has been appropriate. And as some as mentioned already, if he allowed himself to be ‘the face’ of 12YAS, it would have justified that Italian poster debacle and other fcukery that McQueen and the cast and crew had nothing to do with. Plus, there was talk that throwing shade at McQueen (for being ‘uppity’) was a part of the whisper campaign. If, all of a sudden, Brad stepped to the front and McQueen stepped aside, it would’ve been a cop-out and highly condescending, especially since David O. Russell rocked his tried and true @$$ ears without any prompting.

        Brad liked McQueen’s previous works and wanted to work with him. McQueen found the subject and committed to it. McQueen had to answer all of the hard questions, as have the cast on various occasions. Let McQueen and the cast finish up the ride.

      • jj says:

        Brad Pitt is one of 7 producers on the film. I can understand that he tries to bring attention to the movie with his celebrity status, but like everything with Brangelina, it’s always overkill. I am surprised he hasn’t used his kids in photo ops to promote the movie, like he and Angelina always do. I also thought it was pretty disgusting that Pitt cast himself as the only remotely likable white person in the movie. I was not a big fan of the movie and I agree with the black critic who said the movie was torture porn. McQueen is a remarkable talent, but I hope his next movie has a black actor in the lead who is not a slave, maid, criminal or prostitute. Nothing wrong with letting people not forget what horrible things happened in the past between black and white people, but it’s 2014 and it’s time to also tell other stories.

      • @jj
        What in the world does ‘torture porn’ even mean? There was absolutely nothing in that movie that was over the top, in fact it could’ve been a lot worse. We have had so few films on slavery, especially mainstream films. So I’m not understanding how one high profile film on slavery in a good ten years is overkill. Do you know how many people just don’t even understand the ramifications and conditions of slavery–and yes, I’m also talking about white people.

        I will never forget (being the only black person in the class, no less) when discussing slavery in 8th grade, when this girl in my class said ‘isn’t that good then? Because then they have to do the work that we don’t have to do.’–not even kidding. The teacher just blinked at her. That’s the kind of f-ckery that I have to deal with, because some moron doesn’t want to take two seconds to take in the concept of OWNING someone.

        I agree that there needs to be more films with black people (and any other minority) when it’s not a history lesson, but these kinds of films are important. And this is Steve McQueen’s third film–you’re making it sound like he only makes films about slavery or Jim Crow–if you’ll remember, his last film had a black female lead in modern day.

        It is 2014—but fifty years ago, black people were still going to segregated schools. There is still racism everywhere. So I think it is a subject that can never get old. Ever.

      • jj says:

        The critic who labeled the movie as torture porn was black, maybe you should discuss it with him. And he was not the only black person who criticized the movie.

        There were several chapters from the Solomon Northup book that never made it into the movie, which would have twisted the typical Hollywood -a white person is the savior of black people- theme into a broader picture.

        The Guardian had an interesting article by Carole Boyce Davies, a professor at Cornell (also black) about how 12 Years a Slave once again fails to break the typical Hollywood mold of how white America deals with the subject of slavery.

        Regarding your racist classmate, I don’t think any movie telling the story of slavery in America would change her attitude towards black people.

        Steve McQueen’s last movie had two white actors in the lead.

    • Kali says:

      @ lower-case-deb, @Virgilia, @The Original G, @lisa2, @pwal: Damn my insomnia, it never lets me stay up long enough to see the good follow up comments to comments that I make, only the articles. Very very good points, not thought about a lot of those. Chiwetel basically just reduces me to a silly silly teenage girl who doesn’t think about too hard about things.

  14. The Original G says:

    Gravity is so over-rated.

    Whether 12 Year wins or not, it’s going to be considered a film milestone for a very long time and it’s producer, director and cast have so much to be proud of.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      It’s an exercice of style but Cuaron deserves to win best director in my opinion

    • ANDREA1 says:

      IMO gravity is overrated also the only person who deserves the award for gravity is the director because he did a wonderful job. Sandra didn’t deserve to be nominated for any awards because her acting was overrated if you ask Me. Its TYAS all the way for Me because its an unforgetable movie that is going to be talked about even in So many years to come but gravity and american hustle no!

    • Dreamyk says:

      The best thing about Gravity was Tina Fey’s Golden Globes comment about George:

      “It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.”

      I found the transition from, I’m resigned to dying to Lara Croft rising from the waves a bit jarring.

    • lenje says:

      I don’t think Gravity is overrated and it deserves its nomination for directing and best movies. This said, I still think it’s not in the same league with last year’s Life of Pi, another movie with incredible directing and technical achievements (despite all the controversies surrounding it). Life of Pi has so much soul in it that, IMO, Gravity lacks of.

      • lucy2 says:

        I think this is a great comparison. Both were incredibly visual, beautifully filmed movies, which elevated the art of film making, I think. But I agree, Life of Pi’s emotion and story stayed with me, Gravity did not, though I though it was a great film.

    • TC says:

      Totally agree with The Original G. I found Gravity to be incredibly underwhelming in my opinion, and I didn’t even find the visual effects all that stunning. There was nothing I found innovative about that movie. Just didn’t understand all the hype for it.

  15. Just Me says:

    I’ve been indoors watching Brad Pitt movies all weekend long. Not intentionally, but it would seem he’s in a lot of my 90-early 2000 favorites. My goodness, that was one gorgeous man.

  16. Sixer says:

    Barkhad Abdi was INSANE in Captain Phillips. I loved that film.

    But we’re talking about who to hit, well, Chiwetel, obviously. Then Forrest. Then Bryan. None of them are really ball gag types though, are they? They’re all too umm… admirable. I’ll put my toys away, this once.

  17. lisa2 says:

    Brad Pitt all the time.. I know people on this site love love to trash him.. but for me Brad is FOREVER. Beautiful man and I love how he looks. He is Iconic. and earned every letter of that word.

    so glad that TYAS won the PGA. I was so happy for all of them and in Brad the most. He has done so many wonderful films and has been behind some great ones as well.

    so thanks for posting some pictures of him. He doesn’t get the respect he deserves and has earned. I a fan and will scream his praises forever..

    Looking forward to the Oscars.

    • Maya says:

      Actually only the haters and his ex worshipers trash Brad on his looks. They simply cannot handle the fact that Brad still looks this hot at 50 and still together with his lovely fiance and 6 children. They thought that by now they would have split up – since that is not the case they have started to attack on Brad and Angelina’s looks.

      Haven’t you noticed that the same people who rave about the ex’s bikini body are the same ones who constantly criticizes Brad and Angelina? The same hypocritical ones who gets offended if you dare to point out a flaw towards their idol but doesn’t hesitate to do the same towards the Jolie-Pitts?

      I personally don’t comment on anyone’s looks because everyone is unique and people see beauty in different ways. No one has given us the rights to fat or thin shame anyone and it just makes us ugly from the inside.

      PS: Brad is globally known as the sexiest man alive even at this age. my family members from India even comments on how goodlooking and wonderful brad is – this from a family who doesn’t follow Hollywood and the gossip.

      • Ice Maiden says:

        ”They simply cannot handle the fact that Brad still looks this hot at 50 ”

        Eh? Firstly, ”looking hot” is entirely a matter of opinion. I personally don’t think Brad is at all ‘hot’ these days, and don’t think he’s aging particularly well. Others disagree, and that of course is fine. In any case,this is an aesthetic judgement which has nothing at all to do with what I think of him, Angelina, or Jennifer. If it matters, I’m pretty indifferent to all three of them, but that’s just me.

      • Linda says:

        Pls can we retire that word “HATERS”. Let’s leave it in 2013. Thanks

      • lisa2 says:

        Ice Maiden
        I think what she means if you look at his thread there is always that group of people that wait and live to post something negative. Looks are subjective. thing is I don’t go on thread of men I find unattractive to say it over and over and over and over. I am not a Cumberbatch stan.. but I don’t post negative comments on his thread. I don’t visit his thread often because I’m not interested in him. so what do you call a person that does that all the time? I’d be interested in that name.. trolling.

        and your “saint brad/angie comment below just proves the point. there is only a “certain group’ that refers to them that way. not their fans for sure. and certainly not people that are neutral.

      • Maya just because someone doesn’t think Brad’s hot, doesn’t mean you have to get so defensive. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder–it’s all opinion. All that means is that there’s fewer people to cut ;)

        And unless someone said ‘that homewrecking, old, ugly, swollen B. Pitt and his veiny, anorexic fiancee are trying to steal JustJen’s thunder’ (or something equally stupid), then you can’t accuse people (who don’t think Brad is hot) of being Jennifer fans. You don’t need to make personal attacks when someone disagrees with you.

      • Ice Maiden says:


        I dunno. When men – or women – are hyped for their looks, you very often see posters saying they don’t find them attractive, whether that’s Cumberbatch, Fassbender, whoever. The point being that if it’s OK to say someone is hot, it’s equally OK to say they’re not. I haven’t noticed any particular preponderance of that on Brad Pitt threads. I have, however, noticed that there is almost always at least one person who will come on with a ‘how DARE you say anything remotely negative about His Bradness’ attitude, which you don’t see on threads about the above people, or much more rarely.

        Pitt is, imho, a mediocre actor who shot to fame due to his sex appeal. Therefore, his looks are entirely fair game for criticism.

      • Sal says:

        You’re exactly right, Maya. Don’t let people brow-beat and lecture you. Ignore those who choose to dance around the facts to look so self-righteous and sanctimonious. The truth is never defensive, it just…is.

      • The Original G says:

        Oh Jeez. Looks aren’t everything His detractors are always bringing up his looks to belittle his other accomplishments.

        Getting older is part of life. He’s not clinging to his youth. He appears to be pursueing a full life on many levels. Good for him.

    • littlestar says:

      Brad Pitt forever and always for me too! I just love him! I wish he would go back to his long hair. Love Brad Pitt with longer hair forever and always haha.

  18. Meggie says:

    When did Brad Pitt become Macklemore? That hair…..

    Oh, Bryan Cranston-you sexy beast.

  19. marina says:

    I can’t take Brad Pitt seriously with that hair. Not a good look for him.

  20. Girl says:

    It’s Leo’s time now (FINALLY!), he deserves. I’m rooting for him or Ejiofor.

    No way I want to see Matt winning this, he is so fake and the biggest accomplishment of his performance was the weight he lost, the performance itself was average at best. Leto was the best thing about DBC.

  21. Maya says:

    Brad will always do it for me. This man is 50 years old, has had no Botox (his whole face moves) or any other plastic surgeries that we know off, raising 6 children between 5-14 years old, designing award winning furniture line for 5 star hotels in Middle East, produces and distributes universally praised wine, acting and producing critically acclaimed movies, does humanitarian work both in US and outside of it. He is doing all of this and yet he looks younger than most men in their 40s who does half of the things he manages to do in a year.

    PS: Fingers crossed that 12 Years A Slave wins a lot of Academy Awards.

    • Sal says:

      Agreed. I know a lot of 50 year olds (and a few 47 and one 52 year old,) and I can tell you, none, NOT *ONE* has aged as well as Pitt. NOT…….*ONE* and thats the god damn truth. Lets face it, for someone half a century old, he is holding up far, far better than most male actors and far, far, far better than ordinary men in society. I can understand taste being subjective and not everyone thinks he is hot, but that has nothing to do with the issue of aging well. Anyone who said he hasn’t aged well is most certainly not dealing with a full deck.

      • Sorella says:

        Agree!!! I know tons of 40-50 age group men and not many look as good for their ages as Brad Pitt. Seriously, look around you people, look at your coworkers, brothers, dads at this age, lol!!! Then you’ll see Brad is aging just fine (better than Johnny Deep!), even if he is not your type, nobody can deny that!

  22. eliza says:

    When did Pitt’s head become a rectangle?

  23. Annabelle says:

    What the hell happened to Pitt? Why is his face so wide now?

    • B&A FN says:

      Brad gained weight for his movie, Fury, and cut his hair for the same movie. He can lose weight and grow his hair, and he will be better looking that 100% of the men in his age group. People can say whatever they want but they can never say he’s a ugly man, that’s a fact.

    • bns says:

      I honestly think he did something to his face.

      • RobN says:

        I do, too. Somewhere around the time he did Money Ball, his whole look changed, and it changed very suddenly. Eyes and filler at a minimum. Generally started looking very puffy.

        It is nice to see him looking bathed, however.

      • Ice Maiden says:

        I think so too. If this were a female star, or even a male star who wasn’t Saint Brad of the Jolie-Pitts, I think there would be a lot more speculation about the ‘work’ he had done.

      • Cecilia says:

        It’s pretty obvious he has had work done. A whole lotta fillers goin on. Oh well…

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m not so sure if it’s fillers—if he had put that much in his face, he wouldn’t be able to move his face–he doesn’t look like Nicole Kidman yet. But I’m really bad at telling stuff like that–it has to be obvious. I think he gained weight for Fury, and because he’s old it distributed to his face differently than it used to–because before during WWZ he was really skinny. So I think he got old and ‘fat’…but anything is possible. I just don’t really get the impression that Brad cares THAT much about his looks to get fillers–he’s spent a lot of his downtime trying to fight the pretty.

      • Blood&Sand says:

        Virgilia, the “he’s old” statement is hilarious! Brad just turned 50, you’ll be there one day, its not old.

        Well I don’t think 50 is that old–but let’s get real. Brad spent 20 some odd years smoking pot, probably slurping down a fair amount of beer and wine in his off time. It’s only been the last ten years or so, that he’s pushed that away (not to say that he doesn’t do it any more, but just that he isn’t doing it as often as he used to)–given that he’s white, I would kinda expect him to look a LOT older than he does. Like I have a grandma that’s an alcholic–heavy drinker, smokes pot regularly—she’s 55. I swear to you all that she looks older than Brad Pitt’s mom…..

        So, I think given his past habits, and the fact that he’s gained weight, I think he looks really good. I didn’t like it when his face was all skinny in WWZ–plus look at his dad. Same thing (except I don’t think his dad ever smoked pot or drank as much as Brad did).

        V – will give you some slack, when you’re young I guess 50 would seem kind of ‘old.’ But trust me on this, all the parts are still working at 50, and probably just fine for Brad too even given his history of consumption, but I couldn’t say first hand obviously. I think smoking takes a big toll, and he still does. Hope Brad stops again.

        And honestly, I can’t see weight gain on Brad; his body is tight. Maybe its the effect of the cropped sides from the haircut that make his face appear wider. Just my theory.

        OT: I’ve silently enjoyed many of your posts. Please keep it up.

        Thanks for enjoying my comments–I always worry that I’m too long winded…

        I don’t mean that 50 is the end of the hill (my mom’s turning 50 this year), but I mean that that’s when you really start aging, especially if you’re a drinker and smoker (which is why I will probably be neither, because I’m too lazy about exercise now and I like to eat)–so it really shows. I think that’s what showing on Brad–but I could be wrong about fillers. He just really doesn’t seem the type to put fillers in his face, imo. By weight gain, I mean muscle. Because he was pretty skinny for WWZ (compared to how he normally is), and then I think he started working out to gain muscle for Fury.

    Brad Pitt now and forever my favorite crush. Congratulations Brad on winning PGA best movie last night and good luck 12 YAS at the Oscars. Lupita, beautiful as always. Can’t wait to see what LN and Angelina Jolie will wear for the Oscars.

    Brad is so much more than just a pretty face. When I watch him on screen his eyes are mesmerizing. It’s like you can see his soul through his eyes. Adore him! Love his swagger

    Chiwetel gave one of the best performances, it’s so sad he hasn’t been recognized for it. I don’t mind MM, but really now – what world are we living in when MM wins an Oscar before Brad Pitt, Leonardo diCaprio and Johnny Depp? I’m not saying he doesn’t deserve it, it just seems so unfair as these guys have been churning out excellent roles for years. Movies like the Aviator, Django Unchained, Gangs of New York, Edward Scissorhands, Finding Neverland, Snatch, CCofBB, Twelve Monkeys, Babel, Tree of Life, Moneyball.

      I agree with you +1000. I’ll add one more name to your batch and I may get blasted, but Tom Cruise has had some good rolls and has contributed to hollywood a lot with box office return. Hollywood is a big superficial place and so is the Academy. They may try to backtrack and give Leo one this year but I lost all belief in the Academy years ago. I hope 12 YAS wins at least 3 awards.

      12 YAS a slave was liked by critics, I never thought they had a big chance with the Oscars at the start because the Academy members are not fans of Slave movies, really I think that Hollywood is tired of the subject. It was reported that some of the members didn’t even want to view the movie. That spoke volumes for me when I heard that.

    Blech. None of them are my type. (Which isn’t a reflection of what I think of them as actors! Just on a purely physical basis, they don’t appeal to me.)

    I suspect the only major awards “12 Years” will take at the Oscars are Picture and Supporting Actress. “Gravity” will win director and all the technicals.

    By the way, I know everyone is wondering if McConaghey was drunk or high during his SAG speech, but does anyone remember him playing himself on “Sex and the City”? His whole thing was acting crazy and saying weird things.

    They all look nice. I don’t like Forrest’s beard, though. He’s a good looking man, but that thing is too billy goat for me.

  28. Maggie says:

    I’d like to see Leo win. He’s an amazing actor. Laughing at the defensive comments regarding Pitt. I don’t see the attraction myself but good for him getting TYAS out there.

  29. Kim1 says:

    I wonder why Leo looks old since he is the youngest one.LOL.
    As for Brad yeah I dont like the haircut .I know its for Fury.But he is HOT because he is so COOL.There is a video of him at LAX swagger makes him Sexy as F.I never get a sexy vibe from Leo even when he was pretty back in the day

  30. TWINK says:

    I’m a 22 year old gay guy and I think Brad is sooo hot, top 10 worldwide for me, he’s just so ::sigh::, lucky Angie.

  31. lisa2 says:

    I don’t think I have see an account of anyone that has met or seen Brad Pitt in person call him unattractive, ugly, fat, whatever. They always say how great he looks. Better in person if possible.

    I go with that.

  32. Sorella says:

    It’s true, Brad has a swagger and confidence that is sexy, even at 50 he still has that charm and twinkly eyes. As he ages, it’s his confidence, his being a good partner and father, his work and how nice he always seems to be to others, all that makes him attractive. Even Brad Pitt has to get old, but he’s still cool and confident.

  33. Camille (The Original) says:

    Brad Pitt all the way!

  34. Toe says:

    Pitt is Super Hot. There is no one in Hollywood now that could replace him. The Thor guy is close but he looks like a nerd

  35. DJohnson says:

    Brad goes very easy on the eyes but what really makes him a knockout is his humanitarian contributions to the world.
