Best Shirtless Performance: A Channing Tatum GIF Retrospective

Channing TatumWith the 2013 MTV Movie Awards less than a week away, we need to have a serious discussion. Perhaps you know where we're going with this? Three words: Best Shirtless Performance. It's one of two brand-new categories debuting at this year's ceremony (thanks for finally addressing our letters, emails, tweets and Edible Arrangements, producers) and, well, it's a pretty big deal for us.

There are five men of (mostly) high caliber up for the Golden Popcorn: Channing Tatum ("Magic Mike"), Christian Bale ("The Dark Knight Rises"), Daniel Craig ("Skyfall"), Seth MacFarlane ("Ted") and Taylor Lautner ("The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2"). And while only the performances listed here should be considered while voting, we figured it couldn't hurt to take a trip down mammary memory lane to revisit the many arresting shirtless performances proffered by each through the years.

So without further ado, let's begin with...
