While we certainly can't argue with the hot factor of the beefcake chosen for PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive issue, we can't say we're particularly wowed by the picks, which consisted of previous winners (Johnny Depp), stars who've been on our radar forever (Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr.), notorious hotties (David Beckham, John Legend), the random oddball/"his publicist muscled us into it" choice (Nick Cannon? Really?) and a few new faces who could hardly be overlooked (the "Glee" guys, Robert Pattison, Adam Lambert, the smoking hot Gilles Marini). All perfectly legitimate picks. And alas, mostly predictable.

So we were pretty thrilled to get a gander at GQ's Men of the Year listing. Granted, the men's fashion magazine has a very different set of criteria than People (men who made a splash this year vs. men we'd like to cover in cocoa butter and drag into a private cabana), but the list also has a much tighter grip on what's happening today.
