Though the field of nominated films at this year's Oscars are varied and unique, there is one characteristic many of them share. The movie beards of 2012 were some of the best for a single year of Academy Awards nominees.
But the Academy — in an obvious oversight — does not have a category for Best Beards. Outrageous, we know!
Thankfully, the folks over at VH1 have put together an expert panel of celebrities to vote on the best facial hair of the awards season. Check out the video above to see who won to top prize.
