Battle of the Beautiful Boys

I have one pressing question about last night's Academy Awards, and one question only: what the HELL was wrong with George Clooney?!

Now, most women would probably exonerate this most handsome of academy award-winning actors for the glaring death stare that he shot at host Alec Baldwin when it came time for the 30 Rock star to ridicule one of Hollywood's favorite hunks. But just because Georgie's got a pretty face doesn't mean we women should let him off the hook so easily, does it...?!?!

Traditionally, the men and women who are selected to host the Oscars are more or less required to taunt the talented individuals who are nominated for prestigious awards in their mastered art of acting. It makes the show more engaging and allows us regular people to see the softer (or in Clooney's case, hard-ass) side of our cinematic idols.

But instead of a joke said in jest, an eerie exchange of silence passed between the two multi-time winners of the Sexiest Man Alive award - Clooney looking as if he wanted to rip Baldwin's head off; Baldwin looking as though it might be a good time to move on to the next victim before Clooney slices his jugular open.

And funny enough, after a little bit of pointless research, I discovered that there is still some tension between the two stately gentleman which circumnavigates around Clooney's usurping of Baldwin's Sexiest Man Alive throne, back in the mid-90's.

But if this is really the case, shouldn't it have been Baldwin that was throwing the death stares at Clooney?

I believe further investigation is in order here... only if I care enough to figure out the personal lives of these men who are distantly removed from my own.

Until next time!
