Idris Elba brought a big dose of handsomeness to the 2014 Golden Globes. The British actor walked the red carpet at the event in LA on Sunday night while wearing a dark blue Gucci tux. Surprisingly, though, the actor wasn't wearing a bow tie on the red carpet, despite his recent joke about how much the accessory turns him on . Idris is up for the award for best actor, drama, at the show tonight, putting him up against Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tom Hanks , Matthew McConaughey , and Robert Redford . He is also nominated for best performance by an actor in a miniseries or motion picture made for television for his role in the beloved series, Luther. Interestingly enough, Idris will face off against his fellow Brit Chiwetel in this category as well, as he is nominated for his role in Dancing on the Edge. Stay tuned to find out if he wins, and vote in our Golden Globes polls here .
