List Rules Upvote the hottest guys who you think should have been named People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2014.

People Magazine has added Chris Hemsworth to their list of the Sexiest Men Alive, giving the Australian actor the prestigious title for 2014. Mel Gibson was the first hottie to take home the prize in 1985 (yes, really), and in 2013 the title went to rocker Adam Levine. But what do you think: who should have been appointed as the Sexiest Man Alive this year?

Let's take a look at the contenders who were passed up. He stole your heart in The Lego Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy, but was Chris Pratt the year's sexiest heartthrob? What about new dad Ryan Gosling? Or the newly married George Clooney? Clooney has already won twice, so many were thinking that Chris Hemsworth's own brother, Liam Hemworth, of the Hunger Games franchise had a good chance of winning this year. 

There are also plenty of guys who have been sexy for years like Jon Hamm and James Franco, who just might have been able to win, but don't forget about newcomers like Miles Teller (of Divergent and Whiplash) or the adorable Nicholas Hoult (who was super hot as Beast in X-Men: Days of Future Past). But in the end all of this hotness was passed over for Chris Hemsworth, the hunky man who played Thor in the Marvel Studio film. 

If you disagree with People's choice, which sexy men do you think should have been celebrated for their 2014 hotness? Cast your votes below and let People know who you think is really the hottest, most handsome guy of the year.
