The Spike Guys' Choice Awards is an awards show produced[1] by the Viacom cable channel Spike and held since 2007. It is patterned after Viacom's MTV Movie Awards. The winners are chosen based on voting by fans and viewers of the channel.

The trophy for the award is a golden pair of antlers on a wooden pedestal, which is to symbolize the stag which is often associated with masculinity.[citation needed]

Categories[edit]

Categories vary from year to year. Examples of categories awarded more than twice include: "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.
