As a prize, he will be sent a voucher to download Aretha Franklin’s “R.E.S.P.E.C.T.”

2. Thicke’s song and video for “Blurred Lines” have both been condemned for “suggesting date rape is acceptable.” Then, of course, there was also this moment with Miley Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards.

His reaction to the criticism of “Blurred Lines” was controversial – he claimed the song was its own “feminist movement”.

Plus, his response to the uproar about his performance with Miley Cyrus wasn’t much better. “People ask me, ‘Do you twerk?’ I go, ‘Listen, I’m the twerkee. I’m twerked upon. I don’t twerk myself, OK? I’m just twerked upon’.”

3. Thicke came in with almost twice as many votes as runner-up for second year in a row: Prime Minister David Cameron.

Others who received numerous nominations for their “special sexist efforts in 2013” were ex UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom, barrister Robert Colover (he called a 13 year old rape victim “predatory” in court ), and late entrant Sun journalist Tom Newton-Dunn for his comments on Stella Creasy MP’s clothing as she spoke in Parliament.

4. Congrats, Robin!
