Staff Writer

At the annual GQ awards last night, Hamish & Andy were named Men of the Year for 2013.

They were up against Mark Webber, Matt Le Nevez, Liam Hemsworth, Joel Edgerton, Guy Pearce, Baz Luhrmann, Adam Scott, and Hugh Jackman.

"The first award we won together was the Barry McIver award," Andy said.

"My mum made it for us at our first Melbourne Comedy Festival. The official one you can win is the Barry Award, named after Barry Humphries. That's for the best of the best. We were not the best of the best. So Mum went to the trophy shop and made us an award," Hamish joked.

GQ Australia editor Ceri David said:

"The GQ Men of the Year Awards celebrate extraordinary men who embody what it is to be a true gentleman. Hamish and Andy have proven themselves to be smart, creative, tenacious and funny. They aren't afraid to take risks in order to make their mark and, most of all, they never forget to enjoy life. They embrace the spirit of the successful Australian man of today."

Meanwhile, new Fox FM breakfast host Dave Thornton was awarded Comedian of the Year.

“I was really gunning for GQ Bikini Model of the Year but Comedian of the Year is still just as good. GQ put on a fantastic evening and seeing Hamish and Andy win the big prize made me realise it takes a lot of work to become GQ Man of the Year – so much so it took two men to do it!,” said Dave.
