Lyman's Best of 2008: Celebrity Crushes

The end of the year is upon us, can you believe it? Each December I think the same thing, in some ways it seems like the year has flown by and in others it seems like 2007 was a decade ago. 2008 was an amazing year for many reasons and so I begin a blog series on my favorite stuffs of the past twelve months. After each entry I'll link over to a corresponding post on Top Five where you can share your Best Of the year as well.

With the scope of American Pop Culture being so vast and varied, one thing we all have in common are celebrity crushes, they usually start when we are kids (who remembers Soleil Moon-Frye? *sigh*). But each year there is a new crop of headline-making celebs who make us think "I wonder what it would be like to make out with them!?!" Here are Lyman's Celebrity Crushes of 2008:

1. Sarah Silverman
Hilariously funny, cute, and curvy with a propensity for okay-looking chubby guys it is no wonder why so many men love Sarah Silverman.

2. Morgan Webb
Webb is the host of tech channel G4's popular video game review show X-Play. A beautiful girl who digs video games ... I shudder to think how many geeky fanboy stalkers she has. And despite how her sexed-up, airbrushed photos in Maxim that accompany her monthly column "The Game Goddess" appear, I think she has a very natural look that you don't see too much on TV these days.

3. Jenna Fischer
I know, I know, crushes on Pam are so three-years-ago, but I can't help it, she's just adorable. And the new season of The Office has been fantastic. How many folks knew she's originally from Indiana?

4. Kristin Wiig
This SNL funny-lady has been getting more and more popular after her hilarious role in Knocked Up last year. This is her final season on SNL, she was also one of the few funny things in the movie Ghost Town.

5. Rachael Maddow
I know, I know, this one is weird. Really weird. So weird I'm not even going to post a picture. Sure, she's gay ... but she's also really, really cute. And even though I usually hate TV political pundits, she is pretty cool. Makes sense, right? Right? ... anyone? ...

Who are your top crushes of 2008? Tell us over at Top Five.

You make me feel old, out of it, or both. I did not know any of these people by name. When I saw the photos, I recognized only the actress that plays Pam.

If you're old that means I'm old so I'm going to say you are out of it ;)

I can tell you right now, Matt Lauer will probably be 1-5.

You can't deny it: Matt Lauer is hot.
