Drake GQ Man of the Year Not so fast, Scarlett Johannson. You may be Babe of the Year, but GQ ain't done handing out accolades.

James Franco, Drake, Jeff Bridges and Stephen Colbert have been named the magazine's men of the year, an annual list of guys who capture attention through their art or activism (or, in most cases, both).

James Franco GQ Man of the Year Rapper Drake's 2010 appeal is undeniable, with his self-starter back story and brief Rihanna romance (then later collaboration on "What's My Name"). Cover boy Bridges, specifically named Icon of the Year, was a shoo-in after his long-time-coming Oscar win in February for "Crazy Heart."

His successor very well may be Franco, who is getting swamped with reviews of a "career best" performance in Danny Boyle's "127 Hours."

Comedian Colbert, the tongue-in-cheek parody pundit, successfully pulled off his and Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear and maintains cable ratings relevance.

Stay tuned to the Ministry, as we'll have a full dispatch from GQ's Men of the Year celebration, being held Wednesday at West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont.
