The Guys Choice (formerly known as Spike Guys Choice Awards) is an awards show produced[1] by the Viacom cable channel Spike from 2007 to 2016. The winners were originally chosen based on voting by fans and viewers of the channel until 2015, when the show started presenting the honorees.

The trophy for the award is a golden pair of antlers on a wooden pedestal, which is to symbolize the stag.



Categories vary from year to year. Examples of categories awarded more than twice include "Guy of the Year," "Jean-Claude Gahd Dam," "Biggest Ass Kicker," "Decade of Hotness," "Funniest M.F.," "Guy Movie Hall of Fame," "Guy Movie of the Year," and "Most Unstoppable Jock."

Slightly different variants of the category "Hottest (Insert Girl's Name)" also tend to recur year over year.
