The 25 Sexiest Best Actor Winners Ever

|

The 84th Annual Academy Awards (or, as we country folks call it, The Oscars) will air this Sunday evening live from Los Angeles. 84th Annual. Do you know what that means? That adds up to 84 years of mostly attractive, wealthy people getting handed awards. And one thing even a blind person with an unusually high sex drive would admit: This year’s Best Actor nominees are some of the sexiest yet. Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Hot French Dude, Gary Oldman, Hot Mexican Dude. If I were a professional writer on the internet and this was 2008, one might even call them the “nom-nom-nominees.” It’s safe to say that Sunday’s Best Actor winner will also simultaneously be hot as sh*t.

But this isn’t the very first time in history that a handsome man has taken home the big prize. After hours scouring through the Best Actor winners over the past 80ish years, we are proud to bring you the following list: The 25 Sexiest Best Actor Winners Ever.
