Sure, Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainers of the Year list encompasses all things entertainment, but since this is TV Crunch, we thought we’d highlight some of the TV entertainers who made the cut.
Will Smith – Sure, he’s a huge movie star, but let’s not forget his humble beginnings on “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.”
The Cable Queens – Well, that’s what Entertainment Weekly calls them anyway. The female powerhouses of cable are: Mary-Louise Parker (“Weeds”), Kyra Sedgwick (“The Closer”), Glenn Close (“Damages”), and Holly Hunter (“Saving Grace”). These ladies rock, no doubt about it.
Zac Efron – Whether you’re a “High School Musical” lover or hater, you can’t dispute that Zac Efron’s star is on the rise.
Miley Cyrus – This 15-year-old definitely has the “it” factor among the tween set. Her wildly popular Disney show “Hannah Montana” and sold-out concerts mean this girl isn’t going anywhere for awhile.
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay – The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member and “SNL” writer (McKay) have conquered the viral video revolution with their site FunnyorDie.com.
Tina Fey – Finally, Tina Fey is getting some recognition! And why shouldn’t she? “30 Rock” is without a doubt the smartest and funniest thing on TV right now – she even has the Emmy for best comedy to prove it.
Seth Rogan – While Seth Rogan is acknowledged on the Entertainers of the Year list as part of “The Apatow Gang,” let’s not forget his start on those great Judd Apatow TV shows, “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared,” that launched Rogan’s career.
“The Simpsons” – There’s something to be said for an animated series that stands the test of time. With the highly successful “The Simpsons Movie,” this classic shows it hasn’t run out of great material yet.
Vanessa Williams – Who’d have thought a de-crowned Miss America could rise from the ashes? Vanessa Williams dusted off her tiara and is now the queen of TV with her role as Wilhelmina Slater on “Ugly Betty.” Evil never looked so good.
