Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Lust Bracket. Hugh Jackman vs Damian Lewis. #hottiemadness2014  #hughjackman #damianlewis #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Hugh Jackman vs (16) Damian Lewis
It has to be hard to find someone who doesn’t like Hugh Jackman. He’s everyone’s fave Aussie! He can sing and dance and has that effortless charm. Unfortunately for Damian, he plays (well, played) such a polarizing character, that he might not be as well-liked. But let’s get over the fact that he’s not really a terrorist and just focus on his face.

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Drool Bracket. Henry Cavill vs Alan Ritchson. #hottiemadness2014 #henrycavill #alanritchson #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Henry Cavill vs (16) Alan Ritchson
I think Henry is the hottest guy on the planet. Seriously. So hot. I can’t stop looking at him. But when I put these pics side by side, Alan kinda gives him a run for his money. Kinda…

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Crush Bracket. Justin Timberlake vs Chiwetel Ejiofor. #hottiemadness2014 #jt #justintimberlake #chiwetelejiorfor #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Justin Timberlake vs (16) Chiwetel Ejiofor
JT has become a bit of a renaissance man, and one of the best SNL hosts/Jimmy Fallon guests ever, but to me he will always be known as the man who brought sexy back. And Chiwetel has made quite a name for himself this year, with his Oscar nom for 12 Years A Slave. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of his face. Just saying…

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Swoon Bracket.

Time to vote for your most swoon-worthy hotties in Round 1 of Hottie Madness 2014! First up, the Swoon bracket. I don’t want to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to each to put the hotties on a more level playing field. I also did my best to choose recent photos of each hottie. Gotta keep things real.

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Swoon Bracket. Charlie Hunnam vs Jim Parsons. #hottiemadness2014 #jimparsons #charliehunnam #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Charlie Hunnam vs (16) Jim Parsons
Charlie’s post was the most shared of all the hotties this year, and I’m sure that had a little something to do with his winning, and then ditching, the role of Christian in the 50 Shades movie. But, he’s still super hot, and as much as I liked him for Christian, I think Jamie was a good pick. (He’s in the Drool bracket.) His competition is one of my fave nerds on TV, Sheldon Cooper Jim Parsons. I seriously love Jim, and it seems like everyone else does, too, with his three Emmy wins. And you know, nerdy sexy is just as hot as sexy sexy.

Hottie Madness 2014!

It’s officially hottie season! I’m thrilled to announce Hottie Madness 2014! Voting for the third annual tournament of hotties starts tomorrow, March 18th. Last year was a huge success, with over 13,000 votes cast in the final round alone, resulting in a victorious David Gandy. And let’s not forget the original hottie, Ryan Gosling, who was the winner in 2012. Who do think will be this year’s Official Hottie? 

If you’re new to the tournament, Hottie Madness is modeled after the NCAA March Madness tourney, but this bracket is way more fun to fill out! 64 hotties. Sorted and seeded. And ready to be judged by you over the next four weeks.

Hottie Madness 2014. March 18– April 7. Vote for your fave hotties of the year! #hottiemadness2014 #hottiemadness #girlyobsessions

Here’s how it works. I made a list of all the men featured in Eye Candy posts this year. I was actually short by about six hotties, so I augmented with some of People’s Sexiest Men Alive. The hotties were divided into four brackets using random.org, and then seeded by the amount of shares on their posts (and a little bit of personal opinion). This year, the bracket names are based on the four words I think I use way too often: Swoon, Crush, Drool and Lust.

Gratuitous Adam Levine.

So this post was supposed to happen back in November, when Adam Levine was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive, but he got trumped by the Hunger Games Hotties. And since Hottie Madness is only a week away, I wanted to get this post done in time for Adam to be eligible. (But, who am I kidding. With 64 spots to fill and I think only 50-some hotties featured this year, I’ll be filling in the blanks with some random hotties. I just wanted an excuse to look at pics of Adam’s tats.)

Hump Day Hotte: Adam Levine. #humpdayhottie #hottie #eyecandy #adamlevine #maroon5 #girlyobsessions

The thing about Adam is that he’s hot. And he knows it. He’s confident. Sexy. A bit cocky. A bit of a manwhore (well, in the past). A bit naked all the time. But I guess I would be too with a bod like that! He could easily veer into douchebag territory, but he’s also a self-proclaimed “mama’s boy,” raised with manners. He’s an incredibly talented musician with a sexy as hell voice. And body. And tattoos. A true rock star, which seems to be a bit of a dying breed.

Oscar-Nominated Hotties.

The post otherwise known as There-Are-Empty-Spots-In-The-Hottie-Madness-Bracket-So-Let’s-Fill-Em-Up. In all seriousness, these guys are all relevant, and some have never been featured, so they definitely need to be in this year’s tournament! Just a reminder, the Oscars are this Sunday, March 2nd, with coverage starting at 7pm. And will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres for the second time, which I’m super excited about! Love her.

I apologize in advance to Bruce Dern (Best Actor, Nebraska) and Barkhad Abdi (Supporting Actor, Captain Phillips) for not making the hottie cut. But let’s take a look at those who did.

Oscar-Nominated Hotties: Leonardo DiCaprio. Best Actor, The Wolf of Wall Street. #leo #leonardodicaprio #oscars #hottie #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

Leonardo DiCaprio | Best Actor, The Wolf of Wall Street
I don’t need to go on and on about Leo. He’s been featured a few times on the blog and it’s no secret that he is one of my absolute faves, if not my most favorite. A crush that’s been going strong since 1993. I know there are a lot of mixed feelings about The Wolf of Wall Street, but I loved it. I loved him in it. But then again, I love everything with Leo. I can go on and on about how he’s been snubbed too many times, but I won’t. He’s up against some tough competition this year, but obviously, I want him to win.

Gratuitous John Krasinski.

Somehow almost three years have passed without a John Krasinski hottie post. He’s made a few small appearances, mainly beside his equally hot wife, Emily Blunt, but has never had a fully dedicated post. Even though he has no movies or shows or whatever to promote right now, there is nothing wrong with just promoting his hotness. And celebrating the fact that he is a new dad! John and Emily welcomed their daughter Hazel into the world on Sunday.

Hump Day Hottie: John Krasinski. #hottie #eyecandy #humpdayhottie #girlyobsessions

As a huge fan of The Office, I’ve loved John since 2005, when he debuted as the somewhat unkempt office prankster and hopeless romantic, Jim Halpert. I don’t know anyone who didn’t love Jim, and while I know Jim is just a character, I want to believe his not that dissimilar to John himself. John has a great sense of humor. He’s tall. Handsome. Effortlessly charming and has a killer smile. Did you ever see Leatherheads? I kind of think of John as a young George Clooney, but with a wife. They both have a similar charm and sense of humor, they both love to play practical jokes and they both get more attractive with age. John even got married at George’s Italian villa. I’ve also loved John in his other movies like It’s Complicated, Something Borrowed and even License to Wed. I love that he lip synced to a Katy Perry song with Jimmy Fallon (it’s a MUST WATCH). I love the fact that he’s smart (graduated from Brown) and wanted to be an English teacher so he could wear “corduroy jackets with patches on the side.” And beyond all that, he seems like the perfect husband. An actual romantic, not just playing one on TV. Like I want to snuggle right into the middle of his marriage.

Hump Day Hottie: Jimmy Fallon.

I’m not usually awake for late-night TV, but when I am, my talk show host of choice is definitely Jimmy Fallon. And I’m thrilled he’s making the jump from late late-night to “primetime” late-night, taking over Jay Leno’s spot on The Tonight Show starting next week. I think Jimmy is one of those cases where an awesome personality can make someone so much hotter. Don’t get me wrong, Jimmy has a cute foundation. I mean, the man is adorable. Ridiculously excited and happy, all the time. He seems like the most fun-loving guy on TV. Or maybe in life. The kind of guy you want to be your bestie. But if you layer the cute with Jimmy’s universal appeal, his charm, his joy, his infectious smile…that’s what makes him hot.

Hump Day Hottie: Jimmy Fallon. #jimmyfallon #hottie #eyecandy #humpdayhottie #girlyobsessions

The guy can do it all: sing, dance, play guitar, act, do countless impersonations (did anyone hear his bit on the Howard Stern Birthday Bash?). And he does do it all, and will say yes to anything for a laugh, including cracking up during his sketches, which I find endearing. “Definitely a comedy foul. Lorne didn’t like it. I didn’t like it. But the sketches I laughed in became popular. At the end, it was like the audience was waiting. The studio started to shake. Like an earthquake. I couldn’t hold it in anymore. Torture.”
