GQ Magazine's Men of the Year Awards are staged tomorrow night, shining the spotlight on the cream of the crop from the world of entertainment, politics, literature, film and music.
It's a Boss-suits-sponsored event that honours those with stunning sartorial elegance and sleekness of both body and mind. But why not consider those Scots worthy of such a red carpet accolade, the Caledonians who've shaped up with so much conviction in the past year?
First Minister Alex Salmond has to be high on the deserving list, given the massive weight loss achieved and the thigh muscle strength he must have as a result of leaping on to so many bandwagons in the past year. (Just watch what happens if we give birth to a panda.)
Comedian Frankie Boyle too has to be a serious contender, looking slim of cheek and trouserline thanks to his week-long stint on the Guantanamo Bay Diet Plan. The controversial comedian's self-imposed exile from the fridge in his home was a heartfelt strategy more of our politicians, now headed into elasticated waist country, could do well to consider.
Celtic manager Neil Lennon could also figure. Not only did he look great in his court suit this week, he indicated a genuine acting talent, not only when he shook hands magnanimously with a police officer after he had been cleared of using his mobile while driving, but when he offered a positive and indeed hopeful smile in the light of landing Barcelona, AC Milan and Ajax in the Champions League.
Rangers boss Ally McCoist could also be deserving of the same accolade for his ability to smile at each new Rangers owner, although he has looked a little heavier in recent months, perhaps from eating a little too much humble pie in the wake of the Charles Green debacle.
Tommy Sheridan would be Men of the Year image material thanks to the sharp suits and leather jackets that once cost more than a year's bedroom tax, although since his stay in (to quote playwright Ian Pattison's I, Tommy script) "Her Majesty's chookie bin" Sheridan's opted for the stylish tracksuit and is so slim he's practically invisible.
If we're looking at men with sheer strength, convicted MSP Bill Walker must have the strongest grip in the land, holding off the nation's attempts to prise his fingers from Holyrood.
And our winner? Andy Murray of course. Post Wimbledon, he's had glossy mags cut his hair and polish his face furniture to perfection. The result? He's been transformed from Scottish Person into No. 1 sex symbol.
GQ's Men Of The Year, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, tomorrow
