A year without a Sexiest Man Alive? It’s hard to imagine, but in 1994 PEOPLE didn’t pick a winner for the coveted title.

Now our Editorial Director Jess Cagle is righting that wrong by finally awarding PEOPLE’s highest honor to the hottest man of ’94 in tonight’s Lifetime special “People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2015: 30 Years of Sexy.”

There was certainly no shortage of sexy men to choose from 21 years ago, and Cagle singles out a few drool-worthy front-runners, including a Four Weddings and a Funeral-era Hugh Grant, Keanu Reeves – who rushed right into our hearts that year in Speed – and Jim Carrey. (Hey, funny is sexy – even, as Cagle points out, “when you have a chipped tooth and a bowl cut.”)

Watch the video above to find out our belated pick for Mr. 1994.

Check out “People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2015: 30 Years of Sexy” on Lifetime Television Network on Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
