For those of you biting your nails, waiting for PEOPLE to name their Sexiest Man Alive for 2011, we now have a winner.

Bradley Cooper!

The 36-year-old star of ‘The Hangover,’ ‘The A-Team’ and ‘Alias’ is surprised but happy about the award, saying, “I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this [title]… I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.”

Why pick Cooper? The magazine says it’s because he can make dinner, he rides a motorcycle, he loves his mom and he’s fluent in French.

While these qualities definitely give the man sex appeal, is he really the sexiest man alive? Are we forgetting about the other 122 men up for the title this year, like Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron and Joel McHale? And what about the past Sexiest Man title holders?

PEOPLE cast their vote, but now it’s time to cast yours.
