Hump Day Hotties: Sexpot of 2005

At this point midway through each week I usually point you in the direction of someone working me into a lather in the multiplex of my mind. This week we cut to the filmbitch awards where you can check out my choices for the sexiest onscreen in the year that was. These choices are not always purely about the actors. They usually require a combo of lusty role / right actor. But before you click on over, a brief history of this award as foreplay: [Cue bowh-chicka-bowh-bowhm music. Alternate soundtrack choice: Uma Thurman's "If You Got It, Flaunt It" from The Producers soundtrack]

Excellent list Nathaniel-but not even a mention of Jonathan Rhys-Meyers?

Also, you didn't get rid of the Best Chemistry award (I thought I spotted it as an extra award, and liked the award), did you?

i was thinking the chemistry award might be a bit redundant after "ensemble", "casting", "kiss", "sex scene" etc... wrong? right? thoughts?

sorry i didn't supply a link to anyone reading this post this morning. the link is now up.

Was planning to see Junebug in the next few days. It was released on DVD Tuesday.

But your selection of Nivola seals the deal. Thanks.
