LEADING MAN amp ACTOR 40+
He's no stranger in these parts-he also scored last year for actor over 40-but this is his first win as sexiest leading man. Even better than getting that Oscar, right, George?

ACTRESS 40+ amp
TV DRAMA ACTRESS
Why does 40 need to be the new anything? You say Teri, 41, is hot enough to win not one but two categories.

TV DRAMA ACTOR
Last year the Grey's Anatomy hunk tied in this race, but this year it's all his. (Why don't we ever get a doc this foxy when we land in the hospital?)

RISING FEMALE STAR
Maybe you find versatility sexy-Rachel has starred in that ultimate tearjerker The Notebook as well as the zaniest comedy of 2005, Wedding Crashers. That, or you're just slayed by her killer eyes and smile.

MALE IMPORT
In '05 this favorite son of Canterbury, England, won this category narrowly. Not so after his monster Pirates of the Carribean sequel-we're talking landslide.

SONGBIRD RUNNER-UP
Faith topped Beyoncé this year, but the contest was so tight , we'll give props to Jay-Z's special friend. We don't know about you, but we're already lining up for Dreamgirls.

If our records are correct, this is Zach's debut. You guys know that Scrubs premiered in '01, right? Were you just making him earn it? Nice.

Debra Messing

SITCOM ACTRESS
It's hard to believe that Will & Grace is nomore-especially Debra keeps winning this category (as she did last year). Look, we know saying goodbye is hard, so there's always Lucky You, opening in movie theaters September 8.

Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal

SIBLINGS
She's engaged to Peter Sarsgaard. He has been linked to some of the world's most famous actresses. So is it any wonder that, after placing third in '04, Maggie and Jake now claim top spot?

COUPLE
He's a four-time winner for sexiest leading man ('99, '02, '03, '05). She's won sexiest leading lady twice ('05, '06). And thanks to the stalkerazzi, we know nearly every move they make, from the philanthropic to the mundane. Who says familiarity breeds contempt?

NEWS PERSONALITY
We'll try not to obsess over the fact that if you turn 360 degrees, you're in the same spot. Hey, if A.C. is there too, maybe that's not such a bad thing.

ATHLETE
Last year the golf great tied in this sporty category with soccer's David Beckham, but '06 is the year of the Tiger -if not on the green, then without question in our hearts.
