NEW YORK, April 30 -- It's time to man up for the biggest boys night of the year! Spike TV announced today the fourth annual "Guys Choice" � a one-night-only event for guys where the year's most hotly debated rivalries from the world of sports, comedy, film and more go up against one another mano-a-mano with original categories that embody everything that matters in "guydom." The two-hour event pays homage to the things guys love most � superstar athletes, the ladies we love, hilarious comedic performances and legendary rockers. Scheduled to tape Saturday, June 5 at the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, CA, "Guys Choice" premieres Sunday, June 20 (10:00 PM-Midnight, ET/PT) on Spike TV.

Last year's "Guys Choice" honorees, nominees and participants included: Clint Eastwood, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, Ben Stiller, Jamie Foxx, Robert Downey Jr., Eddie Van Halen, Quentin Tarantino, Dwyane Wade and Megan Fox. This year's event will honor, among other greats, the comedic genius of Chris Rock and bestow him with the title of "Funniest M.F." Spike TV will celebrate Rock's remarkable body of work as a comedian, writer, actor, producer and an insightful spokesperson for the millions of less funny people who love him. The "Funniest M.F." speech has become a signature of "Guys Choice" and Spike TV and previous winners include Will Ferrell and Steve Carell.

Super Bowl MVP and "Unstoppable Jock" nominee Drew Brees' on being nominated; "Thanks Spike, this is a great honor. Thrilled to be representing The Saints and the city of New Orleans."

Voting for this year's winners is being held online at guyschoice.spike.com beginning today through Friday, June 4. Also online, fans can log-on to view exclusive red carpet and backstage coverage of "Guys Choice." This two-hour man-tastic event features original categories that encompass everything that matters in "guydom," including "Most Dangerous Man," "Guy of the Year," "Biggest Ass Kicker," "Hotter Than Hell" and "Deadliest Warrior." Keeping with tradition, each category is narrowed down to two nominees and is settled like men: mano-a-mano. As always, the night will feature discretionary honors including "Guycon," "Alpha Male," "Guy Movie of the Year," "Most Man-ticipated Movie," "Rock Gods," "Decade of Hotness" and, of course, our "Brass Balls" award.

All-star nominees include Drew Brees, George Clooney, Brooklyn Decker, Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, LeBron James, Miranda Kerr, Tracy Morgan, Ozzy Osbourne, Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, Sofia Vergara and many more (complete list of categories and nominees is below).

2010 marks the first year "Guys Choice" has gone global, with nearly 100 countries already picking up the rights, a figure that's expected to grow. "Guys Choice" is the third Spike event to be distributed internationally along with "Scream Awards" and the "Video Game Awards."
