What men want

Find out what men really want — through an awards night

MANILA, Philippines – We all know what men talk about, but it’s different when they actually come to an agreement and give out awards.

This is the principle behind The Guys’ Choice Awards, dubbed “the biggest boys’ night out of the year.” Now on its 6th year, the awards show is produced by Spike TV, and an annual to tribute to all things that excite men: the lords of Guydom, women who define modern hotness and the biggest names in music, movies, sports and entertainment.

Hollywood’s hottest ladies du jour Mila Kunis, Rock of Ages’ Julianne Hough, and Malin Ackerman give the men their much-needed boost. Adding to the testosterone are Magic Mike’s Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum, and That’s My Boy funny men Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg.

Director Christopher Nolan and actor Christian Bale make an appearance in support of The Dark Knight Rises, nominated for “The Most Manticipated Movie Award.” 

Other nominees are:

  • Guy of the Year – Brad Pitt, Louis C.K. 
  • Biggest Ass Kicker – Ryan Gosling, Liam Neeson 
  • Guys’ Choice Hot and Funny Actress – Kristen Wiig, Emma Stone
  • Top Fantasy Leaguer – Aaron Rodgers, Albert Pujois
  • Troops Choice (special award from the United States Armed Forces) – Justin Timberlake 

Among the other nominees for the 22 categories are LeBron James, Scarlett Johansson, Kate Beckinsale, Kate Upton, Eli Manning, Tina Fey, Sofia Vergara and Rooney Mara, to name a few.

Winners are chosen based on voting by fans and viewers. The trophy — a golden pair of antlers on a wooden pedestal, the “Mantlers” — symbolizes the best in 2012 entertainment from a manly viewpoint. 

The Guys’ Choice Awards is staged in Culver City, California. Catch it on June 30, Saturday, 11:00 p.m. on Velvet. – Rappler.com
