Scream Awards 2011: Where the Boys Are

Posted on October 17, 2011

Darlings, for Spike TV’s “Scream Awards 2011,” let’s do something a little different and check out the men instead of the ladies. There are worse ways to start your week.


Bryce Johnson

Love the pants, love the shoes, love the watch, but we may as well state outright that we have a thing against henley collars. They just look like undershirts to us. They should always be worn under something; a sweater, a jacket, or another shirt. Otherwise, you just look like Pa Ingalls to us.

Still, as you’ll see, the guys all went as casual as possible for this red carpet. This was at the high end of the effort scale.


Colton Haynes and Tyler Posey

Cute enough, but Tyler needs to button one more button and get his phone out of his front pocket for pictures.


Darin Brooks

Standard, but you can’t really go wrong with this look, even if you do look like you’re here to whack a wiseguy.


Dylan McDermott and Shasi Wells

Fine. We’re going to have to get used to the fact that the boys all wanted to show off their chests this night. Could have used some starch in that collar, though.

Joe Manganiello

Joe wins the chest sweepstakes, hands down.


John Cho and Kal Penn

John looks cute – love the shoes – but Kal looks like he’s attending the campus job fair.


Matt Smith

Yes, even the Doctor felt the need to air out his chest. We love the coat and the boots, but the scarf with the wide-necked T isn’t really working for us.


Paul Wesley

Looks good, we suppose. We just wish some there was a little more dressing up going on here. The ladies all tottered around in 4-inch heels and tight dresses, guys, were there no men willing to put a little more effort in?

Sean Bean

Ah. God bless you, Boromir.

      That’s pretty funny.

      • Totally! Tom Haverford could teach this guy a thing or two…

  • Sean Bean in my face, please.

    • Anonymous

      Hahaha! He is definitely smokin, but am I the only one who thinks he looks like he’s about to explode? What is that, sunburn?

      • That’s a terrible photo of Sean Bean. He’s like a gazillion times better looking than that. Hey, at least he’s well-dressed.

      • Megan Patterson

        He looks like he’s too warm and like drank all afternoon

    I can’t get over that stain right in the middle of Bryce Johnson’s shirt. Seriously, if you’re gonna go casual, at least clean yourself up!

  • I am really hoping that the return of dandyism takes off in a big way so that men will finally stop showing up at public events like this dressed like they are going to a kegger at their frat house.  They’re all great looking men, granted; some terrific chests on display, no quibble there.  And yet why is it that only Dylan and Sean managed to put any effort into this?  Are all you boys just too cool to care? Is that it?

    • Terence Ng

      I, for one, would have been thrilled if boys dressed this well when they went to keggers. There would have been some hot times in that frat house.

    • Anonymous

      Totally agree. Some years back, I started noticing that at events for which people used to dress up–the opera, the symphony–the woman half of a couple would be decked out in all her finery, while the male half would be in a sweater and khakis. And then, a couple of weeks ago, this trend really hit its apex at a jazz concert: nicely dressed middle-aged woman, husband (or whatever) in shorts, white athletic socks, and sneakers. …the fuck???

      And don’t even get me started on men and shoes. So many guys–including a lot of those pictured here–seem utterly unable to choose decent footwear. If they’re not wearing sneaks or shower sandals, they’re just hopeless.  Kind of like three-year-olds.

      Men of the world, how about dressing like grown-ups?  Some very good-looking men here, but the clothing, except for Sean Bean, just gives me a sad.

      • Perhaps what we’re all working on here, is the beginnings of a manifesto to the lazy men of the world, who think that their existence as males is all that they need.  Hell, the world population just hit 7 billion, dudes. So if you want to be appreciated, you better step it up a skosh.

        • I think the problem is actually the opposite; most of what you hear in mainstream media is about how hot women are, and not nearly enough about how hot men are. I think that’s lead to some men thinking that it doesn’t matter if they put in the effort or not, because they’re not going to be hot either way.

          So let’s prove them wrong! Let’s talk about how hot everyone is, and not just half the population. As a bonus, that would give everyone who thinks men are especially hot more chances to find some eyecandy. Everybody wins! 😀

          • I’m so with you on this!
            Lets celebrate the hot wherever we find it.  It comes in all sizes, shapes, colors, sexes, and ages.

    • TLo said that Bryce looks looks like he’s wearing an undershirt. Joe Manganiello actually is wearing one.

  • Anonymous

    A couple comments on the choice of shirts here, a henley used to remind me of Pa Ingalls too, now it’s firmly entrenched as a Dexter kill shirt, i can’t envision it without duct tape and plastic sheeting….and while i do appreciate the Doctor’s avant garde look, that wide neck, “here are my collarbones” style he seems to favor so often just does not work on men…..

    • Anonymous

      Yep, I associate the henley with Dexter’s kill shirt too. And I also appreciate Matt Smith’s quirky styles but I can’t tolerate those wide neck shirts on men. I don’t even want to see one on Joe Manganiello, though I could probably tolerate it a LITTLE better, ha!

  • Anonymous

    I agree that, when the women go to the trouble to dress up, the men should put forth a little effort.  A prime example of a person who is so poorly dressed as to disrespect the event and the other attendees is Colton Haynes.  Dirty clothes, holes in his sweater and a silly hat all add up to say something but I’m not sure what.  He looks like a cute guy, he even shaved, so WTF is up with this mess?

    • Oh, there is effort put into those holes, trust me. Takes a lot of effort to look like you “just threw this on”.

  • Anonymous

    And Sean Bean shows how good a man can look if he takes a little time. Those young boys just looked sloppy. And what’s going on with Kal Penn?

    • I agree, but I would have been more than happy to see Sean Bean in a henley. Sean Bean in anything makes me happy.

      • Anonymous

        Sean Bean in nothing is also very nice.

    • Anonymous

      I love it when a man with shoulders shows up in a suit that really fits him.  Collin Firth does this beautifully and now Sean Bean.  Hot Hot Hot!

        oh, Colin Firth…… drool!

    • M Carlson

      Hasn’t he been working at the Obama White House in some capacity?

      • Anonymous

        He is, I believe. He left House to work for the Obama administration, but I’m not sure what his role was, and he left in 2010 to do another Harold and Kumar movie.

    It is a shame. Too many guys look like they  stopped into the the Scream Awards on their way to Taco Bell for a snack. Well, at least no one was wearing flip flops or backward baseball caps. Nothing here that a quick trip to Nordstrom couldn’t fix. Thank you Mr Bean for making the effort…you separate the men from the boys. Mr McDermott: A splash of color or pattern in the shirt would go a long way. Can we all make a pledge to drop those silly hats. (I’m talking about you Colton).

    I long for the days when the studio system would keep people from going out like this. Guys: at least wear something that will pick up well on camera.

  • Anonymous

    What’s with the lack of color?  It’s all very blah.

  • Am I the only one who thinks Colton Haynes looks like he just rolled out of bed? I’m pretty sure there are a couple of holes in his sweater there. He looks damn sloppy. And I hate the hat.

    For me, Darin, Joe, John, and Sean really nail it (or at least some close).

    • Anonymous

      They look like frat boys that picked up whatever was in the hamper….ever notice the more money someof these “celebs” have the worse they look??? I often wonder if it’s an attention getting tactic…

  • Anonymous

    Such a good looking bunch of guys dressed like dads (from moderately hip to deep in the heart of suburbia) going to an evening potluck neighborhood meeting/party to create community bonds & talk about some neighborhood issues.  Dylan McDermot & Sean Bean excepted. They’re representatives of the developers who are giving a presentation at the start of the evening. Except that in that case, Mr. Bean would have shaved.

  • Anonymous

    Thank you Sean Bean and Dylan McDermott for representing the men.
    Matt Smith really looks sloppy; I guess I expect more from him.

    The rest of the boys, look like, well….boys.

  • oh boromir, if only someone would let sean bean live in a movie or tv show.

  • Vaniljekjeks

    “Ah. God bless you, Boromir.”

    My thoughts exactly!!!  And I can’t decide if Matt Smith is good-looking or not.  He photographs strangely, but on tv he’s quite cute. 

    • I think he looks like Frankenstein’s monster’s hot younger brother. I couldn’t make up my mind for the longest time, but in the end I decided that that’s a compliment.

      • Anonymous

        He’s unique looking. It’s a huge compliment, imo.

  • Boromir can come to my rescue any day. *fans self* Bryce comes in a close second. Love his eyes, and the Henley which screams, “Rip my clothes off now!”

    They’re at a basic cable network awards show sponsored by Taco Bell.  Much as I adore him and his suit, Sean Bean looks a bit overdressed. John Cho, Darin Brooks and Colton Haynes got it right.

  • Anonymous

    Joe Manganiello’s shirt reminded me of the V-neck skit with Ben Stiller on SNL a few weeks ago.

  • Anonymous

    Matt Smith’s thing seems to be “all the girls love me so I can show up in whatever hipster crap I picked up off the floor of my bedroom.”

    and why not, when you’re the Beeb’s pet?

  • At least they all look like they actually got dressed on purpose — that’s improvement.

    Did anyone but me ever see the movie Robin and the Seven Hoods? It was a Rat Pack movie with Bing Crosby, and there’s an entire song about clothing and image… that’s what I always think of at these moments.  “Some people dress ’cause they like to get dressed/Some people dress…/ to get dressed.”

    • Anonymous

      I like that movie, clunky as it is in parts. It’s more like a strange fascination, than a like, really. Because they’re pretty much in character as The Rat Pack the entire time, which sometimes really works for the “plot” and other times, not so much.

  • I adore Kal Penn.  Even though he looks like a banker, at least there’s some effort put in, compared to all the freakin’ sloppy tees and jeans and tennis shoes.

  • Shannon 1

    Tyra needs to be sicced on Shasi for her arched back posing.

  • Ohhh, Helooooooo Sean Bean!!!!!!

    And also, I can’t look at Colton Haynes without seeing Corey Haim. Especially in that outfit.

  • Anonymous

    Sean Bean evidently forgot he’s Welsh in LA and let himself become the human tomato. That suit is fab, though.

    • Anonymous

      Welsh? He’s from Yorkshire, he’s English.

      • Anonymous

        Oh dear, my mistake. My point was made about the probably fairness of his skin in his non-tomato state.

        • Anonymous

          I believe he’s been shooting a show in Turkey – maybe a sunburn. He’s usually pretty fair and not inclined to tan in a can.

    Dylan could have undone a few more buttons as far as I’m concerned (or gone shirtless for that matter ;))…but I generally think that deep V necks and wide necked T’s are douchy…especially Joe Manganiello & Matt Smith. 

    • Are you watching American Horror Story? There was quite a bit of shirtless Dylan in last week’s episode. And we saw his ass in the first episode.

      • Anonymous

        I didn’t watch it, sadly, but did get to see several screen caps, online, of his adorable behind.  drools

        • Be warned that the show is crazy and over the top and sometimes a little gory and heading towards “so bad it’s good”.

    • It is a personal taste thing, but I prefer V necks on men with hairy chests.

  • Anonymous

    Maybe it’s just the photos or the jacket, but Darin Brooks’ head looks strangely tiny.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Best comment: “Ah. God bless you, Boromir.” …I love you guys. They do, overall, look pretty under-dressed, but still can’t say anyone looks bad, really. I agree about Kal Penn, but it still kind of works for him.

    • Jessica O’Connell

      Oh except Matt Smith… very disappointed in the Doctor for that scarf/t-shirt combination. For that, I demand that Doctor Who comes back on the air sooner so that he can make up for this egregious transgression.

  • Anonymous

    I’ve been seeing lots of well-dressed guys, just not on the red carpet. Maybe no one is paying them to wear nice clothes?

    I recently started a new job and there are some astoundingly cool looking guys in this building (all very small businesses here), wearing awesome clothes, honestly sometimes in the elevator my teeth start chattering.

    And the flea market near my house has some great vintage stuff for men.

    It can be done! I know it can!

  • John Cho looks really great. I can’t wait to see him fence again.

    I’ve always had a crush on Dylan McDermott, so of course I think he looks good.

    Joe Manganiello: mmmm….*scrolls up*


    • MilaXX

      Do you like Dylan’s new show?

      • Oh yeah. Dylan was the sole selling point for me (Connie Britton and Russell Edgington aside). I applaud the creative decision to keep him as naked as possible. I’ll admit, though; I didn’t know men cam (cry and masturbate) while standing up. So it’s educational, too.

        • MilaXX

          I lasted maybe the first half hour, 45 mins. The show felt like it was trying to hard to me. I like quirky but this felt like Twin Peaks and The Shining  20 years after the fact. Even Dylan butt couldn’t keep me interested.

          • I’m weird; I found myself laughing in delight throughout both episodes, but I totally see where you are coming from.

          • MilaXX

            maybe that’s where I went wrong, I thought this was supposed to be creepy and scary and it just comes off  as corny. Oh well, whatever keeps Ryan Murphy too busy to muck up Glee is fine by me.

    But this is no ordinary red carpet. This is the doorway to Spike TV Land, where the men are jocks and the women are semi-nude!

       Evidence being the one female shown here. She looks like a hooker. I always feel embarrassed for the women who present themselves like that.

    Sean Bean looks like he spent a little too much time in the sun, but that suit is PERFECTLY cut.  And for a guy his size, that’s not easy.  Bravo.

    I’m pretty sure Boromir never turned that weird color but damn, that Sean Bean is one hot guy. The dude from Who looks positively ridiculous.

    Absolutely no idea who the youngsters are. Joe M. is a little too groomed, but still hot.  Drooling over Sean Bean.  Wow.

  • MilaXX

    Joe Manganiello looks more like he’s wearing a t shirt than Bryce does. At least Bryce is wearing pants and shoes. I give him a pass. Dylan McDermott’s outfit is pretty much his uniform at this point. I’m bored with it.Sashi looks ready to swing n the pole.As much as it pains me to say. Matt does not look good here. He needs to lose that tie stat.Thank you Sean Bean for remembering you are a grown up and dressing accordingly.

  • Lauren Summers

    Does anyone know who designed Dylan McDermott’s suit? It’s the only look here I really like, other than the limp collar. 

  • Jen McElroy

    Matt Smith’s hand-clasped posing is giving me the creeps, especially coupled with that very heavy coat and bare chest. Make it stop.

  • Matt Smith, you have disappointed me. You look stupid, and I didn’t think that was possible.

    I was expecting to see a bunch of guys in cargo shorts and t-shirt with beer logos on them, so overall, this isn’t too bad.

    Tyler Posey is about the cutest boy I’ve seen in a while. Of course, I have no idea who he is. Colton Hayes looks like he’s ready to do a Madonna video.

  • I feel like Sean Bean looked around at pretty little man boys putting on their carefully perfected airs of not caring and sighed quietly to himself, wondering why he had to share a room with them.

  • God — reminds me of college parties: girls are all out — an hour on hair and another on make-up,  while the boys are wearing tennis shoes and old t-shirts.

    Joe Manganiello would win sweepstakes for anything he chose to enter…damn, that man is fine. *swoon*

  • What the hell happened to Kal Penn?  As much as I love him being in Washington, maybe it’s not doing him good.

  • lilibetp

    Sean Bean.  Such a hunk.  And looking pretty gentlemanly here.  Needs a shave, of course, to be perfect.  But pretty darned close otherwise.

    Mmm, John Cho and Kal Penn. My favorite stoners.

    Dylan McDermott could have shown a LOT more chest, and I would not complain. (Fortunately, he’s more than willing to show off everything on American Horror Story, so we’re hardly deprived.) He turns 50 this month, which is just mind-boggling. He looks better than ever. I’m getting the vapors.

  • LOVE Sean Bean!!  Even more for showing up all the young boys!

  • Anonymous

    I’m going to say Dylan McDermott wins the chest sweepstakes for me. Joe M’s chest is just too smooth and shiny, like a Ken doll’s chest.
    Agreed on the Pa Ingalls thing. I like henleys for myself, but for some reason it’s never a good look on guys.

  • I don’t know why, but I am getting a Hamburglar vibe from Matt Smith. Maybe because the jacket is so loose, it’s like a cloak. Either way, he looks pretty silly.

  • I wish Matt Smith would stop with the huge neck t-shirts. They look like mine just before I toss them in the trash.

  • CQAussie

    What’s with all the hands in pocket poses from the fellas?  Kinda annoying.

    Sean Bean must have felt like the TA at a kegger.  He’s still so cute though =D

  • Scott Hester-Johnson

    You guys really need to stop giving Matt Smith a pass. That shirt is godawful, the jacket is even worse (did he steal it from Nanny McPhee?!) and the boots look like the bottom of a hatrack.

    And no, I’m not being harsh because I miss David Tennant. I am just fed up up with Matt Smith’s whole I’m too cool for school crap.

    Sean Bean, why do you look like you took a vacation ON the sun itself? 
    Paul Wesley, why such a dour look and who is sitting on your back that you can’t stand up straight? Did somebody sew your fingertips to the insides of your pockets? 
    Matt Smith, the word Nina would use for the upper half of your body is… mumsy.

  • Shocking misstep from Mr. Smith, but I appreciate his willingness to take a risk.  And Joe?  Let me know if you need any help washing off that dreadful orange tan.  I’m here to help.

    Aah Boromir. Thanks for that.

  • I *love* henley collars on a nice set of shoulders… they set off that little divot in the throat.

  • Why does Matt Smith cut the tops of his t-shirts off all the time.  It’s like he’s a new romantic without the hair and makeup.

    Regarding the photos of Sean Bean.  His face is red because it’s a crappy photo.  Color is all off.  It needed to be edited.  He wasn’t sunburned!  There are dozens and dozens of well taken photos of him online from this event (including some lovely high resolution photos) and his skin tone color was perfect.  Just a nice hint of tan.  You can’t judge by just two photos!…….

  • Are you guys kidding about Matt Smiths boots? They are heinous, are his pants tucked in to them or they really short? either way they are just awful!
