My Oscar Noms

One of the things that really sucks about men's fashion, especially as it relates to awards season, is that we don't have as many options as women do. Sure, you could go to and pull up hundreds of pictures of pieces from designers that thought outside of the box when it comes to the tux. But the fact of the matter is that for many, black tie (especially for the Oscar's) means conservative and muted, and most men are not willing to take risks - excluding some eccentrics like Mickey Rourke and Tim Burton, but they don't count. LoL!

Anyway, what you do have a choice over, however, amidst limited options is cut, shape and color variation. Below are my picks for actors who actually looked like they gave it some thought:

Hugh Jackman (my favorite; this tux is tailored to perfection)

Daniel Craig

Robert Downey, Jr.

Zac Efron
