Hot Guys Emmys: Bomer, Ruffalo, Idris, Chiwetel, Nikolaj & more


Here are some assorted Hot Guys for your Emmy viewing pleasure. Hopefully, there’s a little something for everyone, whether you’re into perfection (Matt Bomer), handsome men with accents (Chiwetel Ejiofor, Idris Elba), fantasy role-playing with possible dragons (Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), a man with the confidence to rock a man-bun (Kit Harington) or just normalish dudes who seem like they’d be a lot of fun (Mark Ruffalo).

Of this group, I think the person who most surprises me is Nikolaj. He usually doesn’t come to these events, and he cleans up nice. He looks really great here. Among this group… I can’t even decide who I would rather. I’ll take some Chiwetel, Idris, Dinklage and Nikolaj, for sure. And I just want to look at Bomer. What’s your choice?

And of course, there’s someone important missing from this year’s Hot Guy Emmys. And that is newly minted Emmy Winner Benedict Cumberbatch. I can’t believe he wasn’t there. He would have given such a great speech. I have a permanent case of the sads now.

    I’m sorry, I can’t focus. All I can see is Idris…sexy, sexy Idris. Mmmmm.

  2. in_theory says:

    I favour the GOT guys, although Kit Harington not so much. There is such a thing as “too pretty”, and he falls into that category for me.

    Is it me, or is Peter Dinklage rarely smiling at such events?

  3. sigh((s)) says:

    Kit, I need the curls free flowing. Nicolaj, just….mmmmm….I need to watch GoT…..wipes drool away with drop cloth.

  4. Jaderu says:

    Idris please. Thank you.

  5. FingerBinger says:

    Yes to all except Kit Harrington. I love the salt and pepper look on Idris and Mark.

  6. aims says:

    Idris oozes sex . The man is hot.

  7. swack says:

    Alex, I’ll take Matt Bomer for $1000. How I love his blue eyes!!!

  8. mimif says:

    I’ll take the sampler plate please, with an extra side of sauce for dipping.

  9. delorb says:

    Damn, but Mark Rufalo is tiny. I had NO idea he was that small. Standing next to the equally vertically challenged, but oh so hot, Matt Bomer brings that point home quite clearly.

    • Mia4S says:

      Bomer’s actually not quite as vertically challenged as you might think. I thought he was, but that’s because on White Collar his costar Tim DeKay is like legitimately 6’2. I’d put Bomer around 5’10. Ruffalo, bless him, is pretty short 😉

      Aww, who cares when they’re both so adorable!

      • delorb says:

        Well, obviously I care. LOL He’s not 5’10 either. I’m thinking around 5’9″. In an episode of the New Normal, they put him in skates to cover up the height difference. Matt is just drop dead gorgeous. I’m thinking the height thing is what has kept him from the big leagues.

  10. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I’d like to be the center of a Chiwetel and Idris cookie, please.

    How tall is Mark Ruffalo? I love him but lately I’ve been thinking he might be a bit smaller than I originally thought.

    • bettyrose says:

      TOK, I would guess 5’6″ but as I said below …he’s got a nice build and brains for days… which all adds up to him needing my home address.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        OMG! That is TINY 🙁

        You’re right about the brain though. He is very sexy, shortness and all.

      • Eve says:

        @ O’Kitten:

        He’s listed as 5’8″ on IMDb:

        Indeed that’s not tall, but not *that* short either.

      • mimif says:

        They lie tho. My man Viggo is listed as 5’11” but I’m 5’10” and I swear he’s shorter than me.
        Anyway, Ruffalo gets a pass because he’s so damn awesome.

      • delorb says:


        So true. You can’t take the heights from IMDB as fact. The only people who can change or effect an actors homepage are their publicists and the actors themselves. Now would Mark’s publicist want the world to know that he’s 5’6″? LOL. I think the tip off to the lie is when they list 5’11 or 5’10” as the height. Everyone can tell that they’re under 6′, so this is a good way to lie without it seeming too obvious. But now too many are using that number, so that its become a dead giveaway.

      • Eve says:

        @ Mimif and Doofus:

        I know they lie. No way in hell Tom Cruise’s height is correct there. But Ruffalo’s height possibly being 5’8″ (1,73m) sounds about right to me. He also doesn’t strike me as someone who’s self conscious about his height to the point of asking his publicists (or he himself, for that matter) to lie about it. Some actors don’t mind that people know they’re short.

        And if he is indeed just 5’6″, well…that’s still four inches taller than me so it’s all good.

      • Eve says:

        Ooops, sorry — I meant “@ Mimif and Delorb”.

    • Adrien says:

      Shorter than 5’8″. Most of these actors are wearing stilts when paired with a taller actresses. Anyway, I don’t know why he’s too self conscious about his height, he’s a hottie and one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors. He gets more roles than Freddie Prinze, Jr.

  11. KJ says:

    Oh, Matty B. *siiiiigh*

    I adore that man, and I’m still grieving his loss last night. I love Sherlock and I love Martin Freeman, but Matt wrecked me in “The Normal Heart.”

    • Walkerfan says:

      Yep. Same here. In all fairness to the talents in his category, sometimes it is just that person’s year. I was so disappointed I turned it off. Watched TNH win later. Disappointed for Larry Kramer as well.

  12. starrywonder says:

    Sigh. All so pretty! Thank you!

  13. Mia4S says:

    The fact that I had no idea Idris and Chiwetel were there is shameful! I missed their catagory and beyond that? Never saw them. Not even red carpet photos. Oh hey but JULIA ROBERTS was there. *eyeroll*

    The guys overall looked great last night.

  14. shixappeal says:

    It is either the worst or the best to be a tall girl (I’m 5’11”) and have celebrity crushes. On the one hand it keeps you grounded (I will most likely never meet this person, so why do I care), but on the other hand it is a crushing fantasy blow!

    • mimif says:

      I know! I’m tall too and whenever I get to see my men in person I’m like helloooo down there! That’s why we have to stick to ballers, shixappeal. 😉

      • shixappeal says:

        Have you ever noticed that every dude who is like 5’7″ish claims to be 5’10”? Like 5’10” is a “probable” height. Boy, I’m looking at you from above and I know that’s not the case! Ballers 4 life.

      • mimif says:

        Ha! Yeah totally, I just wrote that up thread. Karl Malone 4eva.

  15. Lisa says:

    Best = Idris.

  16. bettyrose says:

    Mark Ruffalo is living proof that when you stuff massive brains in short but well built package, wicked sexiness ensues.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Did you ever see ‘Into the Cut’…*someone* has a nice ass. Hint: it wasn’t Meg Ryan.

      I just love his curls.

      • icerose says:

        Into the Cut was not only hot but a brilliant film.It was the first time I really appreciated Mark Ruffalo for his sexual charisma as opposed to his his acting

    • fairyvexed says:

      Heh. You said “package.”

      He also seems really funny and kind.

      Nikolj looks like what Fassbender would look like if he were good looking and unsleazy.

  17. Nikki says:

    where-o-where is………….
    Cary Joji Fukunaga

  18. MickeyM says:

    Nikolaj! He just just it for me – always.

  19. Nikki says:

    Cary Joji Fukunaga:
    i wasn’t watching, but i flipped the channel just when he got up & starting walking, i froze & was like “what is that, where has he been, & why wasn’t i aware of him before?”

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Oooh, I knew he was fine before now, but good Lord. He was WORKING IT last night. Before him, I didn’t know that the Swedish/Japanese combo could be so. damn. hot.

      But I LOVED his version of Jane Eyre…..Michael Fassbender was amazing.

    • DebR says:

      OMG. Bless you bless you….

  20. Size Does Matter says:

    BREAKING NEWS, man-bun smiles!!!

  21. serena says:

    I’ll take some Harington and Ruffalo if you don’t mind.

  22. Kimberly says:

    WHERE IS CARY JOJI FUKUNAGA, he is such a sexy man jeez.

  23. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Idris, Idris–I’ve been watching Luther on netflix–so I’m about to steal him from you Kitten….

    Btw, anyone see his trailer for No Good Deed??? My God, it scared the shit out of me….

    • doofus says:

      seriously…that trailer looked CREEPY.

      sorry, but I would NOT open my door to any strange man, at night, during a storm…

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        What’s so scary is that it could happen. With the exception of his character being a woman hating, violent, crazy lunatic–any man who looks like he’s in trouble, lost, got in an accident, could do something like that. I still wanna know how he got into the house–because in the trailer, she opened the door, he said that he wasn’t gonna come in, etc, and so she closed and locked the door. When she came back to the door, he was gone–and somehow managed to get in, cut all her phone lines, and pick up her daughter w/out her knowing.

        But yessss…I wanna see it so bad. I love Taraji…

    • icerose says:

      The episode featuring the attic in Luther was one of the scariest things I have watched.

      • fairyvexed says:

        You obviously haven’t seen the first ep of the third season. There’s a moment there that scared the utter f**k out of me.

  24. Jane says:

    Helllllllllo where is Cary Fukunaga, the director of True Detective, Jane Eyre?
    He makes all the others look average.

  25. shix says:

    *sigh* this post just makes me really really miss hot guy Friday. Used to start off my weekend in such a high note! 😢

  26. eliza says:

    GOT men FTW.

  27. M says:

    As a dane it will ALWAYS be Nikolaj and i have met him and he is even hotter in real life + super nice!

  28. joe spider says:

    You know what they say girls – “They are all the same height lying down”

  29. kri says:

    One of each, please. Thank you.

  30. GlimmerBunny says:

    1. My celebrity husband and nr 1 crush Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Jaime Lannister forever!
    2. Matt Bomer. Perfection indeed.
    3. Idris Elba. He’s just so totally sexy and the accent adds to the hotness.

  31. andypandy says:

    I do believe this is the first pic Ive seen of Chiwitel without his girlfriend attached to his hip…..Was she not there Does she know this was done ? ….Shocking LOL

  32. Adrien says:

    Omg! Luther. Prom Night came up the other night. I was about to change the channel when Idris appeared as the Detective. Then it was followed by that Beyonce Fatal Attraction type movie. Idris, you are spoiling me.

  33. kitty-bye says:

    I am starting to think men have it “easy” with this Tux look, can’t they get outrageous like the women? 🙂
