Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, and more: Which Sexiest Man Alive was the sexiest at the Oscars? -- POLL

Despite the shiny hair and even shinier dresses of Hollywood’s leading ladies at last night’s Oscars, I found my eye wandering to the dapper leading men. Whether the actors were dancing on stage, growing sophisticated beards, or winning major awards, as my eye wandered I realized what many of these handsome men had in common: seven of them had been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive. Denzel Washington earned the title in 1996, George Clooney in 1997, Richard Gere in 1999, Ben Affleck in 2002, Clooney again in 2006, Hugh Jackman in 2008, Bradley Cooper in 2011, and Channing Tatum in 2012.

So which of the Sexiest Men Alive was the sexiest last night? Were you struck by Clooney’s beard, Cooper’s slicked-back hair, Washington’s ageless charm, Jackman’s chivalry, Affleck’s tears, Tatum’s dance moves, or Gere’s glasses? Cast your vote in the poll below!

Oscar snubs Ben Affleck, Kathryn Bigelow, Matthew McConaughey: Which omission hurts the most?

The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, and while we all congratulate the lucky ones, we can also lament those left off the list. Let’s start with EW Entertainer of the Year Ben Affleck: Although Argo nabbed seven nods, including Best Picture, supporting actor Alan Arkin, and adapted screenplay, he didn’t make the director’s cut. Zero Dark Thirty helmer Kathryn Bigelow was also snubbed, despite the film’s five nominations — among them Best Picture, actress Jessica Chastain, and original screenplay. The directing category is always ripe for gripes when it doesn’t include those behind the year’s Best Picture noms (see also: Django Unchained‘s Quentin Tarantino and Les Miserables‘ Tom Hooper this year).

As for acting snubs, there’s The Sessions‘ John Hawkes, Arbitrage‘s Richard Gere, and Django‘s Leonardo DiCaprio — all of whom scored Golden Globes nominations. And our dream of seeing Matthew McConaughey recognized for Magic Mike has sadly gone unrealized.

Which snub have you dubbed the most egregious this morning? Feel free to tackle any category. (No screenplay nod for Perks of Being a Wallflower or Looper!)

Arbitrage

“Oscar-nominated actor.”

In Hollywood, there is no greater title for an actor or actress. To be an “Oscar-nominated actor” is a calling card that will forever be used in formal introduction and trailers to sell subsequent movies (many of which will not exactly be Oscar-caliber.) But there’s no denying the prestige that it lends — it’s practically royalty. It can never be taken away as long as a thespian lives, and it will most certainly be included in the first paragraph of their obituary. READ FULL STORY
