Never have we seen the phrase “Man-crush” used so much to describe humans as with Spencer Krug and Bon Iver (aka Justin Vernon).
While Spencer Krug was holding down the tail of the list at #9, Bon Iver was thrust into top 5 territory, beating out such handsomes as Ryan Adams and Thom Yorke but also getting his ass handed to him by Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend. We’ll see you next year, Ezra!!!
*Bon Iver also won #3 album of the year, and Okkervil River’s The Stands Ins was deemed as the #21 album of the year as well.
