Entertainment Weekly just recently released its annual list of the top twenty-five entertainers of the year, with the head of the list being none other than Robert Downey Jr., the man who has seemingly revived his career by appearing in box office hits such as Iron Man and Tropic Thunder. He overcame substance abuse which had troubled him for several years and included an arrest for possession of illegal drugs in the late 1990’s.

The annual rankings that Entertainment Weekly puts together includes entertainers of all different mediums (television, film, print, and the internet). Yes, Facebook made the list this year, making its debut at number 20. Past winners have included the likes of Russell Crowe, Ricky Martin, Denzel Washington, Ellen DeGeneres, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and last year’s winner, Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling. Also making this year’s list were the robot, Wall-E, from the Disney/Pixar movie as well as the cast from Sex & the City: The Movie, which made its debut this past summer.

It is quite amazing to see who and what are considered to be the most buzzworthy, impactful entertainers according to the magazine, Entertainment Weekly. In the case of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg’s creation provides entertainment to the millions of users around the world that interact on its website everyday.
