Award show season starts here, folks! It’s time for the Summer TV Hottie Awards, celebrating the best of the…um…no. Just celebrating attractive people. Very, very attractive people.

Here are your categories. Your picks can be from scripted or reality TV. I encourage show diversity, so think about all the shows on right now (or that just finished a summer run). And, kids, have fun.

Hottest Summer TV vet (male):

[Sandra’s pick: White Collar‘s Matt Bomer, pictured above for your pleasure]

Hottest Summer TV vet (female):

[Sandra’s pick: True Blood‘s Deborah Ann Woll. As Ken Tucker said, she’s the highlight of the season. Runner-up: Piper Perabo!]

Hottest Summer TV newbie (male):

[Sandra’s pick: He’s not “new’ but the show is, and because I’m inventing the rules, I’ll let it slide. Falling Skies‘ Noah Wyle. It’s the beard.]

Hottest Summer TV newbie (female):

[Sandra’s pick: Necessary Roughness‘ Callie Thorne. Brains are hot!]

Best body in a post-coital scene:

[Sandra’s pick: Suits‘ Gabriel Macht. That is all.]

Best use of unnecessary disrobing:

[Sandra’s pick: Franklin & Bash‘s Mark-Paul Gosselaar, whose character felt the need to tan during business hours in front of a window.]

Best use of necessary disrobing:

[Sandra’s pick: Pretty Little Liars‘ Ian Harding in the season 2 premiere. What? It was totally necessary. He had to answer the door!!]

Best pool/body of water scene:

[Mandi Bierly’s pick: True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard, Eric playing in water after he drank Claudine’s blood]

Best “Oh, no. I’m all sweaty and attractive” moment:

[Sandra’s pick: Covert Affairs‘ Christopher Gorham, Auggie post-gym]

Hottest supernatural being:

[Sandra’s pick: Joe Manganiello as Alcide on True Blood. See 20-second mark. Yes, you just watched this clip above. Are you seriously complaining?]
