We've arrived at the very end of 2009, which means it's finally time to unveil our hotly-anticipated 25 Hottest and Lamest lists of 2009. Tonight we're kicking things off with our 25 Hottest of 2009 list, which includes a number of movie-related events (films, actors, actresses, trends, scenes) that we all thought were the hands-down hottest things to happen in Hollywood over the past 12 months. Joining us from the Cinematical staff for this year's lists are Eric D. Snider, William Goss, Monika Bartyzel, Dawn Taylor, Elisabeth Rappe, Jen Yamato and Peter Hall. We'll be back tomorrow night with our list of the 25 Lamest of 2009. Enjoy!
14. Gerard Butler
Just as moviegoers were wondering "So, where'd that guy from 300 go?", Gerard Butler scored a hat trick with The Ugly Truth, Gamer and Law Abiding Citizen. No matter where you went or what you watched, Butler's face was grimly staring back. The tabloids can't get enough of him, he's name-dropped for every beefy role that comes up for grabs, and Variety has dubbed him the International Male Star of the Year. Hollywood has certainly decided he has arrived, though I still think the jury is out with moviegoers. Nevertheless, he was certainly one of the hottest things going this year – and not just because he showed his ass again. -- ER
