Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, and Hugh Jackman Battle for the Best Fancy Coat on a Male Actor Reelzie

Mirror Mirror has one of the best.
Can Armie's jacket beat all the rest?
By in large, women in the 21st century have more opportunities to wear fancy and elaborate clothing than men have. But this year plenty of men in fancy outerwear were featured at the cineplex, and we decided to see which coat was best and create the Reelzie Award for Best Fancy Coat on a Male Actor.
The nominees for Best Fancy Coat Worn by a Male Actor Are:
The floor-length evening coat with red lapels worn by Armie Hammer in Mirror Mirror might have been upstaged by the peacock dress and swan hat that were featured in the same scene, but it truly deserves some recognition of it's own.
If the award were based on lapel size alone, the purple overcoat worn by Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables would be the winner for sure.
Johnny Depp's Barnabas Collins was wearing quite a lot of look throughout Dark Shadows, but his ruffled, fancy black coat was an example of truly elegant outerwear.
With all of its epaulets, fringe, and silver bling, the white coat worn by Aaron Johnson in Anna Karenina is surely noteworthy.
Perhaps this would fit better in a Best Capelet category, but the distinctive outerwear worn by Luke Evans in The Raven brings both the fancy and the fabulous.
