She may see it on the reg, but Taylor Swift isn't the only one who gets to appreciate the #Hiddlesbum.

(For the uninitiated, that's, uh, "Tom Hiddleston's bum.")

That's because TayTay's most recent beau was just named this year's male "Rear of the Year," an award that's been doled out each year since 1981 to honor "prize-winning rear assets," according to its website. Past winners include Daniel Radcliffe, Elaine Paige and Jennifer Metcalfe.

"The votes flooded in when Tom revealed his well-toned rear on our TV screens in an episode of ‘The Night Manager,'" reads the very serious, very academic explanation on the award's website.

As peculiar as the whole situation is, it's true that the 35-year-old British actor's nomination didn't come as a surprise: His Emmy-nominated performance on "The Night Manager" did indeed include a scene in which he bared his backside for the world to see. Afterwards, Hiddleston's bodacious curves became so popular that they garnered their very own hashtag: #Hiddlesbum. And the rest, as they say, is history.

As with Kim K's own champagne-guzzling bum before it, the #Hiddlesbum could very well be said to have broken the internet.

In a recent interview with W Magazine, the actor commented on the fact that the risqué scene was cut from AMC's broadcast of the episode: "I’m here to tell you that my butt is not dangerous."


With a ton of awards in her own right — albeit lesser ones, like Grammys — we can't imagine Swift feeling too competitive or jealous when it comes to Hiddleston's cheeky new achievement. But she might be a bit peeved to find out that the "Rear of the Year Awards" exclusively grants nominations to Brits.

Sorry, Tay. You need not apply.
