Time to get down to the nitty gritty in our review of the GyllenNoughties and our presentation of the Jake Gyllenhaal Awards. In today's post we look at the best (and some of the dodgy outfits) of the rapidly depleting decade. I'll start with a picture.
Let's get the difficult bit over with - I definitely think that Jake is in these pictures below solely because he was being polite. Without doubt, this top photograph is an offront to Gyllendom. The photographer is still on the run.

If you can't make up your mind, how about one of these?
This Thursday is my birthday. I've not yet chosen how old I'll be but I do know that Jake will be cooking me up a feast in his trailer. That's one option - the other option is that some good Jake friends are taking me out in London today to re-enact the ice-skating scenes from Brothers. Nevertheless, there is one more crucial element of this survey to come.
