  2. Ellen knows her female and gay audience.
    Male body is beautiful. I couldn't choose one of them. All are handsome.

  3. You gotta love the silly stuff Ellen does on her show! Never mean, never nasty, never snarky ... just silly, and fun, and always entertaining.

  5. I agree with GTFR. Seriously? Gwyneth Paltrow is not ugly, but the most beautiful woman in the world? She's not even that great of an actress.

  6. Are we talking about physical beauty ?

  7. Elizabeth Taylor is gone. There will never be another true winner.

  8. I actually like the award going to her -- since it's never going to go to the actual "most beautiful person in the world" (how would one even define that), it may as well go to someone who's beauty is as much her spunky, fun-loving attitude as it is her actual good looks.

    Plus, I just love that it went to a 40 year old woman. Plenty of men may get it at 40 or even 50, but there's this perception for women that they have to be very young (teens/early-mid 20s) to be beautiful... and Gwyneth proves that's no where close to being true. Gwyneth is every bit as beautiful today as she was 15 years ago, if not more so.

  9. Gwyneth is gracious and obviously does not take this latest brouhaha all that seriously.
    Ellen's send-up pokes fun and celebrates the absurdity of the moment.

  10. I'm laughing harder at the posts with people getting upset about this. Does this really matter in the grand scheme of things? Grow up! Love how Ellen just makes fun of it and they laugh about it. Gwyneth Paltrow always seems like a nice person and genuinely didn't care for this "title".

  12. I was looking at pictues of Salma Hayak yesterday if anybody is as beautiful as Elizabeth Taylor it would be her

  13. Ellen sure knows how to keep her female audiences happy, and some of us males, as well,

  14. Again with the objectification of scantily-clad men.

    I can think of 3 possible explanations:

    a) Ellen is so desperate to bond with her audience by distancing herself from "lesbian-ness" that she over-adjusts by having a constant stream of scantily-clad males on her show

    b) Ellen's objectification of men is motivated by a feminist revenge fantasy--she objectifies men as a way of "getting back" at straight men for objectifying women, or

    c) Ellen honestly believes that most straight women like seeing a constant parade of scantily-clad men, when, in reality, few of them do.....the only attempt to create a magazine for women that featured nude men--namely, Playgirl, failed rather miserably, surviving only as long as it did due to sales to gay men, not women....and only a tiny percentage of women ever go to a "Chippendales" type club.

    Maybe all of the above.

    Regardless, it is tiresome and obnoxious and has begun to make her, herself, tiresome and obnoxious.

  15. The blonde dancer looks so familiar...

  16. "Regardless, it is tiresome and obnoxious and has begun to make her, herself, tiresome and obnoxious."


    if you changed the pronouns in the above sentence--who do you think that sentence would apply to more? You or me? Or both. Don't, don't, don't take yourself too seriously. It becomes "tiresome and obnoxious".

  17. I see that Rick, who's never appeared in so much as a YouTube video, knows the formula for a wildly successful show-biz career, unlike Ellen. Clearly another benefit of his frequently expressed deep admiration of women and understanding of what they want.

  18. Raven is the most beautiful woman in the world.

  19. @DW Oprah, Rachel Ray, Phil Donahue, Regis (and now Michael) and Cathy......and many, many others, have hosted successful daytime talk shows with overwhelmingly female audiences and none of them ever had to resort to parading around half-naked men every other day.

    Just because her objectification parade does not cause people to stop watching does not mean that they find that particular aspect of her show tiresome and obnoxious, which it most definitely is.

  20. The last sentence in my last comment should have read "that they DON'T find....." rather than "that they find"....

  21. She can give it to Maggie Gallagher and call it community service.

  22. The blond guy is adorable. He does look familiar.

  23. The objectivication of fine men rocks. I often watch films just to get a scented eyeful of good-looking men, Jake Gyllenhall for sure, and many more. It's joyous.

  24. I like topless men; but seriously - if a tv show today objectified women in the same way they'd be crucified. There's such a double standard that women generally don't want to acknowledge.
