Spike Presents ‘Guys Choice’

NBA scoring leader Dwayne Wade, UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar and comedian Sacha Baron Cohen are Spike TV’s kind of guys.

Those men will be among the winners and presenters at Spike’s third annual “Guys Choice” awards special.

“‘Guys Choice’ is a one-night-only celebration of guydom and will be the biggest boys’ night out of the year,” said Casey Patterson, executive producer and senior VP of event production and talent development Spike TV. “We’re bowing down to everything that matters to our guys, from their childhood heroes, icons and sports legends to the current comedy, women, music and movies that matter to mankind.”

Among the women represented on Spike will be Halle Berry, who is getting the Decade of Hotness Award, which no doubt will be placed next to her Academy Award.

Judd Apatow, who has made a series of movies aimed at guys’ unique sense of humor, is being given the Mankind Award.

Other awards are being decided by a fan vote at www.guyschoice.spike.com. Although voting is closed, viewers will be able to go to the site to view red carpet and backstage coverage of the “Guys Choice” event.

The official sponsors of “Guys Choice” are AT&T, Corona beer, Degree V12 antiperspirant, Pizza Hut and the U.S. Army.

“Guys Choice” will be taped May 30 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, Calif. The special airs June 21 at 10 p.m.
