Pitch...Hosted by men's magazine GQ the GQ Men of the Year Awards are an annual initiative that salutes the most innovative and influential gents that best represent GQ's message. Past winners include actor Joel Edgerton), Alex O'Loughlin, Ryan Kwanten, Formula 1 driver Mark Webber, actor Firass Dirani and celebrity chef Curtis Stone.

This year's Man of the Year nominees include Hugh Jackman, Liam Hemsworth, Keith Urban, Matthew Cowdrey, Guy Sebastian, Chris Hemsworth and Michael Clarke.

It was last night Hollywood action hero, former Home and Away star and all round hulk Chris Hemsworth was named GQ Australia's man of the year, the grand prix of an annual gong show for the nation's hottest hunks. But what made Hemsworth an intriguing recipient was that he took the gong, as voted by the magazine's readers, after beating Keith Urban, Hugh Jackman, Matthew Cowdrey, Michael Clarke, Guy Sebastian, and most interestingly, his brother Liam Hemsworth. CH is reportedly busy planning three weddings with his US pop star fiancee Miley Cyrus. Neither of the Hemsworths made it back for last night's event at the Ivy, with Chris filming Thor 2 in Iceland and Liam busy at the Cyrus ranch, leaving it to proud parents Craig and Leonie to accept their son's trophy.

Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth was given GQ's highest honour at the 2012 awards in Sydney last night.

The 29-year-old said he was "thrilled" to have taken the top prize and appeared via video link to accept the accolade.

"GQ has been so supportive of me right from the beginning of my career," he said during his acceptance speech, "and it’s an honour and a privilege to be acknowledged within their pages.”

The GQ Men of the Year Awards celebrates the country’s finest actors, comedians, sportsmen, artists, rock stars, fashion designers and creative visionaries recognizing the diverse and inspirational talents amongst them and honouring their contribution to Australia’s cultural landscape.

Australian actress Bella Heathcote, who has celebrated a meteoric rise from Neighbours to starring alongside Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows was named the 2012 Woman of the Year.

News limited caught up with the Aussie..."It feels really good. GQ is an institution and its even an honour to be mentioned by them," Heathcote told News. "I was genuinely surprised, I didn't think GQ would have even thought of me!

Heathcote said it was flattering to be named in the same league as last year’s winner Rachael Taylor, and it was wonderful to be recognised by the local industry.

"The praise here is more genuine, we don’t give it out as freely, so it's even lovelier when I do receive it," she said.

The upcoming James Bond film Skyfall is a marketing juggernaut for its tie-in partners as well as for the products that will actually appear in the film. These placed products include Coke Zero, Sony, Caterpillar, gunmaker Walther and, of course, most famously, Heineken. Even Turkey and China are associating with 007. One of the firms responsible for some of Skyfall's product placement is Seesaw Media. Brandchannel spoke with Seesaw Media Founder and Director Darryl Collis about the hullaballoo over the product placement in Skyfall as well as how all of the negative media might impact future product placement deals.

Founded in London in 2001, Seesaw Media has, in the last 12 months alone, guided its clients' brands into some of the world's biggest onscreen hits, including The Iron Lady, Midnight In Paris, The Dark Knight Rises, Taken 2, Twilight, Looper and The Bourne Legacy.

For Skyfall — the most product placement focused film of the year — Seesaw Media placed outerwear by iconic British luxury fashion brand Belstaff onto the shoulders of villain Silva (played by Javier Bardem) and Bond's "butt-kicking MI6 colleague" Eve (Naomie Harris). (Brand Channel)

007 Legends video game...

007 Legends is a first-person shooter video game featuring the character of British secret agent James Bond. It is developed by Eurocom and released in October 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and November 2012 for Microsoft Windows and Wii U. The game is available as physical optical disk media, as well as a digital release download via PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace on date of release. The purpose behind the game is to celebrate fifty years of James Bond in film. To achieve this the single player campaign will include one mission from each of the six actors’ eras, being Goldfinger (Sean Connery), On Her Majesty's Secret Service (George Lazenby), Moonraker (Roger Moore), Licence to Kill (Timothy Dalton) and Die Another Day (Pierce Brosnan), with Skyfall (Daniel Craig) to be released as downloadable content. Additionally, some of the original talent from the films are adding their likenesses and voices to their associated characters. 007 Legends is the fourth James Bond game title to be released by Activision.

007 Legends gets mixed reviews; positive reviews...

Sean Colleli from Gaming Nexus, recognised the ambitious six-film scope of the project (in comparison to Eurocom's 2011 success with the single storyline retold and reimagined in GoldenEye 007 - Reloaded) and praised a lot of the gameplay developments, noting that the gadgets "get a decent amount of use, and don’t border on the absurd or impractical" and concluding that "gameplay is a bit of a mixed bag overall, but it definitely skews toward the better. It has GoldenEye’s pedigree in it, and I applaud Eurocom for trying new things and taking risks". Some praise was given to the game's split-screen multiplayer modes, with IGN pointing out that localised split-screen was a feature that had been frequently overlooked in first-person shooter games, before adding that there was little to separate the multiplayer of 007 Legends from that of the GoldenEye 007 remake. The Media Man agency said "While not the greatest movie based video game of all time, hard core and some casual James Bond fans will not be able to resist this more than decent video game."
