Ben Affleck will be honored at this year's Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards with the highest honor.

The Oscar winner will receive the Guy of the Year award at the June 8 awards show at Culver City's Sony Pictures lot. Spike TV will broadcast the awards a few days later at 9 p.m. June 12.

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel will receive the Funniest M.F. award, while Vince Vaughn will be honored with the Guycon award. Kevin Hart will receive the first Stand-Up of the Year award, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke will receive the Holy Grail of Hot award, and Felix Baumgartner, who completed a world-record free-fall space jump in October, will receive the Mankind award.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog will continue to roast the Douchebags of the Year.

“As always, we're looking forward to honoring the men of the year and the women we love in our own Spike way,” said Casey Patterson, executive vp event production, talent development and studio relations at Viacom Entertainment Group. “Guys Choice promises to be a star-studded night of totally meaningless entertainment.”

Voting for the Guys Choice Awards' categories begins Thursday at guyschoice.spike.com, which includes the full list of nominees.
