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.

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.

Sweet16: Bradley Cooper vs Josh Duhamel. Hottie Madness 2013 presented by Girly Obsessions.
(1) Bradley Cooper vs (4) Josh Duhamel

It’s an All-American Hottie battle! Brad had a pretty easy win over Colin Farell, 64%, but Josh had a very narrow win over Gerard Butler. Two votes. 50.25%. So will that be enough to win against last years Sexiest Man Alive? I loved Brad in Silver Linings Playbook, so much that it spawned a major obsession. But Josh adopts doxies…

Hottie Madness, Round 2: The Heartbreakers.

Welcome to Round 2 of Hottie Madness! First up, The Heartbreakers. No super close calls in Round 1, but there was an exciting battle of the abs! There were over 4,000 votes cast in the David/Rafa poll, and even though Rafa fans rallied, David was victorious. We did have one upset with Matthew McConaughey beating out Wilson Bethel. Why no love for Wilson? Is no one else watching Hart of Dixie??

So let’s get on with Round 2. You can click on the names/links for the full post and cast your vote in each box below the photos. Click here for more details and to download the bracket. Voting for this bracket has ended. But you can still vote for the last Round 2 bracket: The Seducers!

Round 2, The Heartbreakers: Bradley Cooper vs Colin Farrell. Hottie Madness 2013 presented by Girly Obsessions.
(1) Bradley Cooper vs (8) Colin Farrell

I guess it’s no surprise that Bradley beat Joe Flacco with 88% of the vote, even though Flacco fans tried to rally for a comeback! And Colin beat out Jon Hamm with 62%. As far as Bradley vs Colin, we have an all-American hottie vs. a sexy Irishman. Tough call.

Hottie Madness, Round 1: The Heartbreakers.

Welcome to Round 1 of Hottie Madness! First up, The Heartbreakers bracket. There is some tough competition here and I think we’ll have some close calls! Not to sway the votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to put the hotties on a more level playing field.

You can click on the names/links for the full post and cast your vote in each box below the photos. Click here for more details and to download the bracket. Voting for this bracket has ended. Round 2 is now open! And there is still time to vote in The Seducers Round 1 bracket.

Round 1, The Heartbreakers: Bradley Cooper vs Joe Flacco.  Hottie Madness 2013 presented by Girly Obsessions.
(1) Bradley Cooper vs (16) Joe Flacco
This is quite a turn of events. I actually started Hottie Madness last year because I was mad that Bradley Cooper was voted People’s Sexiest Man Alive instead of Ryan Gosling. But my love for Silver Linings Playbook resulted in a huge obsession with Mr. Cooper, and we find him as one of this years top seeds. So clearly I’m not alone. Joe Flacco is representing my hometown team, the Ravens. He was voted MVP after leading his team to a Superbowl victory. So I’d say he’s had a pretty successful year and his cool new $21mil a year salary is also quite attractive, don’t ya think?

Matthew McConaughey as Dallas, the male stripping fashionista.

Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce today’s guest blogger, my friend Becca! We saw Magic Mike together last week, and since she was seriously swooning Matthew McConaughey (I spell his name wrong every time), and since we’ve never done a post on him (what?), I asked her to write this post. I think she did a fab job!

When I was fifteen, I was introduced to Matthew McConaughey in the romcom The Wedding Planner. Little did I know it was the beginning of a long time crush. Movie after movie, I swooned through my teens and now into my twenties. But it wasn’t until a few a weeks ago that I became more aware of how much I truly love his charm, wit, and biceps. June 29, 2012 is now marked the day that Matthew McConaughey took his love for acting to a whole new level in Magic Mike. On this day, he was released to all the women in the theater as Dallas: a haggling-stripping-in-love-with-his-own-body-attention-craving-fashionista.

If there is any reason to go see Magic Mike (besides the obvious hot male naked bods) it is to witness the outfits of Dallas. I can’t think of a better example for the phrase “going all in.” Dallas leaves nothing behind. And NOTHING to the imagination.

Topless with a scarf and hat, some might be confused about the season. But for Dallas, it all works. Barely covered in red, white and blue for 4th of July weekend, Dallas accessorizes with a cane (not used for walking). There is nothing sexier than a man representing his country with confidence.

One movie, so many hotties: Magic Mike.

Ashley: Even though I’m excited to be going on vacay, I’m kind of bummed to miss the premiere of Magic Mike. That may seem silly, but it’s like THE ultimate eye candy movie. Men. Naked. Hotness. Muscles. Stripping. Romance. Comedy. Basically, the perfect movie.

Sara: I have been very excited about this movie for a while now. The men in this movie range from my fave Step Upper to one of the hottest-self-proclaimed-off-set-nudists-playing-a-werewolf! I will be seeing this shortly after it comes out, and I will bring my own drool towel to the theater. No shame in this single girls life, skin is skin!

Ashley: Wait, is Joe a self-proclaimed nudist? How did I not know this?? It’s weird. When I see pics of Channing Tatum in real life, I don’t think he’s that hot, yet I love him in movies. What is that about? I know Step Up is like one of your fave movies, so you must be excited to see Channing bust a move again! And how about the Matt’s: McConaughey and Bomer? Double drool.

Sara:Well Joe said he likes to be nude, and naturally I bumped him up to nudist. I am sure that was what he meant. Something about Channing’s charm comes through in every role he plays and that’s why I like him so much. Matthew always makes me laugh and always looks good. And Matt is adorable, but since I know he plays for the other team, I just appreciate from afar!

Ashley: Haha, yeah, luckily there is a lot to appreciate. Well I’m sorry I’ll miss the premiere. Luckily I have all these seriously HOT photos to hold me over. Thanks, EW!

(And if you need any more convincing, watch the trailer. It’s what sold me!)

Muscles galore: the Magic Mike EW cover.

I know it’s a Thursday, and not a normal hottie day, but the latest Entertainment Weekly cover has too many hot muscles not to share! (And we’ll be back in a bit with another post!) It features the cast of Magic Mike, aka Channing Tatum’s male stripper movie. Joining Channing on the cover is Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer. I’m usually not that attracted to Channing, although I do like him in movies (loved 21 Jump Street), and he’s looking pretty damn sexy on this cover. Well, they all are. And I have to say I’m kind of excited about this movie! It looks funny and cute with a bit of a twist on the classic romcom. Plus it has a serious amount of semi-naked hotness going on.
