My family loves Pitch Perfect. There were no words to express our excitement when the new trailer came out.

But there is a video.

My sister, brother-in-law and five-year-old videographer/soloist niece celebrated through a Disney-themed version of “Cups.”

Needless to say, I think they crushed it.

Thanks for the trailer link Amy!

People’s Sexiest Man Alive

Okay readers. Let’s talk sexiest man alive. Everyone knows that I’m an expert on this subject. Let the record also show that I’m still waiting for my invitation from People Magazine to be a member of their selection committee. I did major in abology after all.

I’ve written about the sexiest man edition once or twice (read: four) before and have anticipated the annual reveal since its debut in 1985. Translation: I’m qualified.

HERE is a link to the time Johnny Depp landed the honor.
HERE is a link to the time I was mortified that they dressed Bradley Cooper like Mr. Rogers.
HERE is a link to the time I retracted that statement – sort of.
HERE is a link to the time I threatened to start a letter writing campaign for TEAM GOSLING.

Jimmy Kimmel is slated to reveal the new sexiest man on his show tonight. In the spirit of the “games,” I think we should predict who that person will be. To get you started, here is a list of the winners from the last decade:

Jude Law
Matthew McConaughey
George Clooney
Matt Damon
Hugh Jackman
Johnny Depp
Ryan Reynolds
Bradley Cooper
Channing Tatum
Adam Levine

Before I researched the list, my obvious guess would have been McConaughey. To say it’s been his year is an understatement. He won an Oscar and made a Lincoln commercial that went viral when other entities began making fun of it. He also has a movie out that needs promoting.

You may wonder if the powers that be at People would gift him with a second title so close to the first? How many years need to go by before a sexy man is deemed sexy again? To that, I give you George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Richard Gere and Brad Pitt. All have received the honor twice in less than 10 years. In Brad Pitt’s case, he won twice in five years. One would assume that McConaughey would definitely be on the list again.

Here’s another thought: In the last 28 years that this high honor has been bestowed, 26 of the recipients have been actors. That number is 29 if you count Adam Levine (last year’s honoree) as an actor. The only other recipient to not have a SAG card is John F. Kennedy, Jr.

JFKJ

I totally get that.

Who do you think will land the coveted position of Sexiest Man Alive? Sound off in the comments section and let’s see if any of us get it right!

**There will be an actual post on my thoughts of the Sexiest Man Alive later this week.**
