Just another Tuesday night in Hollywood.

GQ Magazine descended on Tinseltown for its ultra-exclusive annual "Men of the Year" soiree, honoring the most accomplished and stylish men in entertainment, film and sports.

Held at the legendary Chateau Marmont on the Sunset Strip, celebs and athletes alike convened over an open bar and tasty hors d'oeuvres to compliment each other and raise a glass for a job well done.

Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh, dressed in a checkered jacket with purple pocket square, was the first athlete to arrive and made the rounds with his wife in tow.

Bosh’s 6-foot-10 frame quickly drew the attention of celebs including Jamie Foxx, Diddy and fellow baller Baron Davis, who was decked out with black reading glasses and a gray fedora slung low on his head.

Bosh quickly joined teammates Ray Allen and Shane Battier to talk shop, their upcoming match with the Clippers and favorite movies while celebs such as "Family Guy" creator Seth McFarlane, Frank Ocean, John Cho, funny girl Sarah Silverman and Stephen Moyer of "True Blood" drifted by to hit the bar.

Athletes and movie stars alike were caught gawking as recording star Rihanna made her way to the bar in a slinky, form-fitting red dress.

As RiRi and her 19-member entourage made themselves at home, Allen and Battier talked hoops with Hollywood execs in an adjacent room while a DJ worked his MacBook, spinning the latest hits.

Oscar winner Foxx took a few minutes in between checking sports scores on his iPhone to say how excited he was about working with Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie "Django Unchained."

Then Foxx spotted Bosh and made his way to a lounge to take pictures with the Heat forward. Foxx stepped up on a plush velvet chair in an attempt to match Bosh’s height. (Not even close.)

Hip-hop mogul Diddy checked in with the NBA players, then hugged it out with Foxx before heading for the door. Bosh, Battier and Allen followed suit.

"We have a big game tomorrow," Bosh said. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were no-shows (sadly, so was Megan Fox) as were several Clippers who checked in by text.

“I don’t go out during the season,” one texted me as Rihanna took pictures with "Modern Family" star and three-time Emmy nominee Eric Stonestreet.

At about midnight, the "We Found Love" singer, too, had seen enough and bolted for her chauffeured ride.

Yes, just another Tuesday night in Hollywood.
