LOS ANGELES, CA, June 7, 2012 - Spike TV's "Guys Choice," the star-studded sixth annual tribute to the lords of guydom, took place Saturday night at the Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles with a cadre of unforgettable moments. The only celebration of its kind, gathering the biggest names in music, movies, sports and entertainment, premieres on Spike TV Saturday, June 9 (9:00 PM - 11:00 PM ET/PT).

Justin Timberlake was surrounded by members of the United States Armed Forces onstage while accepting the "Troops Choice" Entertainer of the Year award.

"The Dark Knight Rises," the epic conclusion to director Christopher Nolan's "Batman" trilogy, was named the year's "Most Manticipated" movie, with Nolan and the Caped Crusader himself, Christian Bale, accepting the award from Mark Wahlberg on the film's behalf.

Reuniting for the first time since its release in 2003, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson and director Todd Phillips were on hand for the induction of "Old School" to the Guy Movie Hall of Fame. The honor was bestowed upon them after a rousing introduction from John C. Reilly. "Old School" is the sixth movie to receive the coveted award, joining the elite company of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "GoodFellas," "Swingers," "There's Something About Mary" and "Fight Club."

Adam Sandler joined previous winners Keith Richards, Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford as a recipient of the "Brass Balls" award, while "Ted" director, writer, and star Seth MacFarlane was named "Funniest M.F.". Matthew McConaughey received the "Guycon" award from his "Magic Mike" costar Channing Tatum for nearly two decades of memorable characters he has brought to life, from "Dazed and Confused" to "Tropic Thunder" to "Eastbound & Down."

In one of the night's most memorable moments, former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand was bestowed the 2012 Guysman Trophy for his courage and determination in his efforts to recover from a spinal cord injury suffered on the field. LeGrand's continued defiance of his doctors' expectations was honored after an introduction by New Jersey native Ray Liotta.

Additionally, five-time NBA champion and living basketball legend Kobe Bryant received the "Choice Baller Award" for his record setting achievements on the hardwood.

Other megastars appearing at "Guys Choice" include: Malin Akerman, Blake Anderson, Kate Beckinsale, Kristen Bell, Laura Linda Bradley, Adam?Devine, Donald Faison, Kit?Harrington, Ed Helms, Anders?Holm, Julianne Hough, Mila Kunis, Nick Offerman, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Rodgers, Andy Samberg, Dax Shepard, Robert Smigel, Emma Stone, Channing Tatum, and Jean-Claude Van Damme.
