Hot Guys of the BAFTAs: who would you rather?


Here are some photos of the Hot Guys of the BAFTAs. Alas, no Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston. I was kind of hoping both would show up – Hiddles because for a while there, he would go to the opening of an envelope. I hoped Benedict would come because he’s actually in 12 Years a Slave and it had a big night. Even crusty Michael Fassbender came to support Chiwetel Ejiofor and the film (and Michael was nominated but he doesn’t CARE, okay?). So, in lieu of Hiddles and Benny, Chiwetel is our main Hot Guy Host of this post. I don’t mind that at all. I was so proud of him when he won Best Actor. It’s depressing to think that this might be the only major award Chiwetel wins, because his performance was career-defining greatness, all subtlety and quiet, silent grace. He reminded me of Charlie Chaplin.

I’m also including photos of: Michael Fassbender (he’s working his Macbeth styling and that’s his dad in the back of the car), Tom Hardy (who was with Kelly Marcel, not his fiancée), Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, David Gandy (mm… velvet), Leonardo DiCaprio (he blew a kiss to the camera and it was awesome), Eddie Redmayne with his girlfriend (and a really terrible haircut), Christoph Waltz, Daniel Bruhl (that scruff is working for me) and Barkhad Abdi.

So, who would I rather? I’m feeling Chiwetel here, of course, and then… Tom Hardy, even though he’s looking rather thin. Maybe throw in David Gandy and Daniel Bruhl for some quick fun. Sorry, I just can’t get back on the Fassy Train, even though he was being cute last night as he sat beside Chiwetel.

    I will take David Gandy and Tom Hardy off your hands, leaving the rest for you ladies. See how kind I am :)

  2. SonjaMarmeladova says:

    Eddie and Daniel ( he speaks German, nuff said). And Barkhad is kinda cutish.

  3. T.Fanty says:

    Hardy, Bruhl and Chewetel. In no particular order. Maybe together.

    Bradly Cooper looks like he’s not allowed to breathe out in that tux. Pants too tight?

  4. blue marie says:

    Chiwetel, Redmayne and then Waltz. (Gandy as well, if time permitted)

    Damn, I’m being really picky but none of these guys are doing it for me. Sure, they look nice and some of them are handsome, but I’m not feeling anything. David Gandy is the best looking of the bunch even though male models don’t usually do it for me either. He’s handsome and nice to look at, but there has to be something more for me. Looks, brains, personality, charm. It all has to be there when I develop a real celebrity crush. I don’t get all of that from these men. Sorry.

  7. AG-UK says:

    What is all this crazy beard action sorry do not like facial hair. But I can see if for a film role, Chiwetel is lovely but def. Fassy even with that ginger facial hair. Bradley no he is looking a bit weird and that suit does him NO favours plus the child bride with him NO. Leo looks handsome although he has never done it for me. Eddie a cutie but looks so young.

  8. Ice Maiden says:

    Honestly? None of these men make me go weak at the knees. Fassbender used to provoke that reaction, but with that beard (yes, I know it’s for ‘Macbeth’), not so much. He’s still definitely the best of the bunch though.

  9. Badirene says:

    Bale, Hardy, Bruhl and maybe even Waltz if I was in a generous mood. Wanders off to think about this very important matter for the rest of the day.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Bale. Hands down.
    Nice to see Chiwetel win. I have a feeling McConaughey is going to take the Oscar, but who knows. Also, that Eddie guy from Les Mis always reminds me of Dennis from It’s Always Sunny. I can’t unsee it.

  11. MrsBPitt says:

    Well, since you didn’t put Brad Pitt’s picture up, I’ll have to go with Leo….however, my Brad (not to be confused with Bradly Cooper), all day, every day!!!!

  12. JaDeRu says:

    Bale, Waltz, DiCaprio, Ejiofor…in that order.
    I better go take my vitamins.

    Edit: Ahhhh I forgot Hardy!!!
    He’ll have to be my cool down.

  13. Simmie says:

    Here for the Daniel Bruhl thanks! Eddie Redmayne also. He’s so awkward sexy.

    I’m usually a facial hair fan but Shakespeare or no, that look is doing nothing for Fassy.

  14. Fangirl says:

    Wheres my Cumberbatch ???? Was he there ?

  15. Angel May says:

    No Tom, no care.

    Wish Fassy had brought his chick whatshername. That would be interesting.

  16. OriginallyBlue says:

    Michael and David!!!! Yum!

  17. Evie says:

    Bale, Ejiofor, Bhrul

    BTW Looks like Christian Bale’s wife is pregnant.

  18. Sixer says:

    Chiwetel, Chiwetel and Chiwetel. Then Tom-the-bloke Hardy. Then, and I can hardly believe I’m saying this, Fassy. I’m sure this last is a one night only thing, but never let it be said that I’m not h-h-honest.

    Were Benny the Bitch and Puddletom even invited? It’s hard to credit that either cried off.

  19. Diana says:

    Forgot how HOT Tom Hardy can be. Just when I thought I’m over him.
    Fassbender and Chiwetel are looking great..I’m starting to feel kinda bad for them(and for Lupita). I was hoping for Chiwetel to get more major awards..and for Lupita…*any* award.

  20. Baskingshark says:

    Not a very impressive turnout; I believe this post should be titled “Lukewarm Guys of The BAFTAS”. For the record, I would have to pick the Bruhl, but he would need a better haircut first.

    Eddie Redmayne looks like a small, sad, befuddled ferret. Leo and BCoop are so oily if they went swimming in the same sea at the same time, their combined sweat would be responsible for more seabirds perishing than BP.

    And what is UP with these messy, unkempt homeless person beards? Beards require maintenance, gentlemen. They’re like puppies, if you’re not prepared to take on the responsibility and dedicate time and effort, you shouldn’t have one!

    • Mia4S says:

      Yikes, I know! I can allow for Chiwetel (even though I HATE it) because it’s for the movie he’s currently filming but for the rest?!

      Bale looks great, there are some photos that definitely look like his wife might be expecting but given how private they are I doubt we’ll know for sure until they show up pushing a stroller. :-)

      • Tulip Garden says:

        Agree that Bale looks great (as always) as does his wife. BTW, I love that we won’t know about a baby until they just show up with one. Bale embodies an actor that truly wants to act and be a private citizen when not doing his job. I love that about him!…his wife too because so many spouses will still famewhore when their talented spouse does not :)

  21. Sarah says:

    Bale. Bale. Bale. He’s officially hot again. Thank the heavens. And he looked very happy.
    Followed by Ejiofor and Hardy.

    P.s Are the Bales expecting? Is that why he’s looking so happy?

  22. mia girl says:

    Among this group, I like them all as actors but for tingles…
    Bale, followed by Bale, with a side of Bale.

  23. Miss Jupitero says:

    Chiwetel is very good looking, and I should want to hit him, but there is something emotionally cold there which ruinsit all for me. Redmayne, yes, but I wish he looked his age.

    Hiddles will always go to the opening of and envelope, never say no to a camera (though I am glad he is withdrawing from selfies– it’s a good development!), and never turn down a chance to show off a free suit, but isn’t he off to Toronto to film Crimson Peak? Also, if he is not nominated or presenting, would he even be invited? I don’t think you can just show up for these things.

  24. umyeah says:

    Bale looks healthy and happy in that pic. I’m getting a weird shia lebouf vibe from hardy and I usually love him. Bale for the win.

  25. tifzlan says:

    1) Where’s Idris?!

    2) I’m so happy Barkhad Abdi won! He was phenomenal in Captain Phillips.

  26. nicole says:

    Christoph Waltz. Usually, I’d go with Tom Hardy, but Christoph is such a rarity on these lists. I’ll take him for myself :)

  27. Janeite says:

    Chiwetel Ejiofor and Eddie Redmayne for sure. The rest…meh. I’m on the fence about Michael Fassbender.

  28. Marianne says:

    Its too bad Eddie had such an unfortunate haircut. And colour. I like him as a ginge.

  29. Hannah says:

    Chiwetel and bale, I have a massive crush on bale after American hustle, I don’t know what it was but even with the potbelly and combover he managed to be so sexy. I met Tom hardy and even though he is good looking he is so small that as a tall girl I didn’t find him all that.

  30. Shiv says:

    Never thought I would say this but…..Bale.

    Bradley is just ‘too’ pretty for me.

    If Cumberbatch was there, he would have taken the top spot of course.

  31. Little M says:

    Where are the real hot guys? Really, the women are all a hundred times better looking than those guys.

    I miss young Keanu Reeves and pretty boys of yesteryear.

  32. Migdalia says:

    I’m so happy and squealed when Chiwetel won since BAFTAs are like the British Oscars. Still hoping he comes out of left field for the Oscars. With that said I don’t find him hot or sexy. I’ve seen him in 12 years and Love Actually and lots of pics but nada. That beard certainly doesn’t help.

    #1: Fassbender duh…can’t believe he didn’t win this one either
    #2: this always gets saved for Idris…he was there in spirit for the Mandela pic lol
    #3: Tom Hardy as one of the few times I’ve found him extremely dashing
    #4: Leo DiCaprio…come on! How awesome was his standing O for Chiwetel
    #5: I can’t even find a genuine #5 lol so ill take Fassbender for round 2 ;-)

  33. Dreamyk says:

    Eddie and Gandy..I want to be the fillling in between those two hot cookies. RAWR :)

  34. Sam H x says:

    I’m not a beard type of girl either, I must say Chiwetel looks very handsome in his suit and gosh, his wife is so beautiful…I’m soo pleased for his win, its about time he was recognised for his performance in 12YAS…My, my does Christoph Waltz look good enough to eat, Sh*t even Leo looks good too (what is wrong with me?! lol) Ditto on Christian Bale ladies, he looks nice too…If I could give Oscars to the cast of 12YAS I would!

    My love for Bradley Cooper has died down a little, he really did shoot himself in the foot with regards to his comments about JLaw then he goes and hooks up with that 20 something socialite/model, a walking irony. He looks uncomfortable and stiff in his suit.

    • Alina says:

      Let´s be fair this Suki chick seems to be more mature than Armpit Vagina Lawrence… so maybe he was just nice when he said Jen is too young for him… and let´s not forget he said this before he even met Suki. That´s why you should never say never

  35. TC says:

    Bravo to Chiwetel. Best performance this year in his category in my opinion. I’d love to see him win the Oscar, but I’m certainly not holding my breath on that one. He got a great reception from the room last night when his name was announced — standing ovation from many, whistles from Tom Hanks and a kiss on the cheek from Brad who seemed thrilled he was finally getting some recognition for his amazing performance. So many were thrilled to hear his name called. At least he received a BAFTA. So I’m going to celebrate that. It would be a crime to have see him come out of this awards season empty-handed.

  36. magpie says:

    Chiwetel, because he’s the only one who looks classy with a beard. The others, not so much. I do like a less bulky Tom Hardy though. And Eddie, why so dour?? Missed that ginger face.

  37. Kimberly says:

    CONGRATS to Chiwetel on winning that award!!!!!!!! :D

    BTW……why are so many actors growing those beards? Chiwetel, Fassbender, Daniel, Christian and now Tom Hardy? Did they make a pact to all grow beards for awards season? LOL.

    Anyway, I have an affection for Chiwetel, ever since I saw him in Kinky Boots. I know that’s strange, but true and ………..I still find Fassbender sexy, even when he has that scruffy ginger beard. :D

    Daniel Bruhl is also a cutie pie and David Gandy is a typical pretty boy but he looks nice. He just needs to tone it down with the tanning.

  38. Esmerelda says:

    Bale! And DiCaprio!
    …love DiCaprio at awards, always looks like he’s having an internal ironic commentary on it all. The twitching eye, the half smile, the shrugging shoulders…

  39. kellyinseattle says:

    All I have is that I wouldn’t …not DiCaprio

  40. bluhare says:

    Cooper looks like he’s hiding something in those cheeks.

  41. Trixie says:

    Bale! Where is the pic of Dicaprio blowing a kiss?

  42. OldIsGold says:

    What about Ralph Fiennes and his fabulous facial hair?!

  43. balticprincess says:

    Daniel Brühl & Mr. Waltz, I have to be patriotic. Some of them look as if they had too much time on the chav-toaster, orange tan, I don’t like that. The ginger beard gives me the creeps, so I guess right for Macbeth. Chiwetel – great, but I seriously dislike facial hain in any form on anyone, except P.I.Magnum.

  44. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Fassy, Hardy and Chiwetel for me please, the rest: no thanks *puke*.

  45. I Choose Me says:

    Why choose?

    I’ll have me some Chiwetel, some Fassy, some Christian, some Tom Hardy AND some Christoph.

  46. Megan says:

    Man, I am SO over Fassy. To the point where I can’t even believe I was once into him…wow

  47. A Mascarada says:

    Can’t decide between Fassbender and Bale… Ok, I’ll take both :)

  48. Sara says:

    Christian Bale for me. Oh how I once loved Leo, but he doesn’t do it for me anymore although still love him as an actor.

  49. Adrien says:

    I like men with beards like Bradley Cooper and also men with facial hair.

  50. Dedre says:

    Why is Bradley Cooper and Fassdong wearing the same tux?
