    Entertainment Weekly will have their annual issue in December announcing their choice(s) for Entertainer of the Year.

    Who do you think are the frontrunners for 2012?

    The Avengers. Or the Superhero if they don’t want to leave out Batman, Spider-Man, and the others.

    Ben Affleck is a lock. Genius. Avengers? Just because a lot of people buy something doesn’t make it Great. Superheroes are fast food.

    I think Jen has a real shot. She’s young and fresh, and did big-time favours for the box office. Then there’s The Avengers, who entertained people to the tune of $1,511,757,910 and counting. I cant see them going for an author this year, although I wouldnt rule out someone like Suzanne Collins entirely.

    I really think Jennifer Lawrence is the front runner right now, especially if SLP also makes big-time B.O,

    Channing Tatum had that unique feat of three $100 million grossers, but he was recently named “Sexiest Man Live” by People, so it might be overkill.

    The Avengers or superheroes in general is an excellent suggestion given the massive success.

    Daniel Craig or James Bond because of the triumphant return and the 50th anniversary.

    Adele (great album sales, Grammy wins, Bond theme), Taylor Swift (amazing album sales and successful singles) and Adam Levine (Maroon 5 had two big singles and he had personal exposure from “The Voice”) are possibilities from the music world. Justin Bieber, Rihanna and One Direction are not out of the question.

    As far as television is concerned, here are some choices that might not get the big title but could receive mentions: Louis C.K. (he also tours), Claire Danes/ Damian Lewis, Zooey Deschanel, Lena Dunham, Jessica Lange, Maggie Smith (also has film work) and the cast of “Modern Family” or the judges from “The Voice”.

    Does anyone have last year’s list?

    It’s either Jennifer Lawrence or Channing Tatum, I think. Or Adele.

    Taylor Swift likely won’t make the top spot, seeing as how she earned it just a few years back, but she could likely receive special mention. Channing Tatum was the first name that popped into my mind, though Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar buzz would make her a more viable candidate, the more I think of it.

    I scrolled through the EW slideshow (found here: http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20326356_20554082_21093770,00.html)

    Full list:




    1.      
    Daniel Radcliffe


    2.      
    Adele


    3.      
    Matt Stone and Trey Parker


    4.      
    Brad Pitt


    5.      
    Zooey Deschanel


    6.      
    The Voice
    Judges (Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Christina Aguilera)


    7.      
    Viola Davis


    8.      
    The Cast of Bridesmaids
    (Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Ellie Kemper, Wendi McLendon-Covey,
    and Melissa McCarthy)


    9.      
    Ryan Gosling


    10.  
    Katy Perry


    11.  
    Louis C.K.


    12.  
    Hugh Jackman


    13.  
    George R.R. Martin (
    Recommended by Amy Poehler of all people.)

    14.  
    The Killing
    Cast (Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos, in particular) (
    Notably, Stephen King essay expresses that he
    was “dismayed” by the decline of the season. He ended up caring for the
    characters, regardless.)


    15.  
    Emma Stone


    16.  
    The Walking
    Dead
    Cast


    17.  
    The Breaking
    Bad
    Cast

    Interesting list. I LOVE the Bond suggestion. Bond, James Bond. That film could wind up a phenomena by the time it ends it’s run. I’d be pleasantly shocked if Trey Parker and Matt Stone wins this. A big part of me wouldnt mind seeing that happen.

    I can see Lawrence, Rihanna, Daniel Craig, Tatum, Lena Dunham, The Avengers, Claire Danes (or Homeland), One Direction, Anne perhaps or The Dark Knight Rises, Ryan Murphy, The Big Bang Theory (cast), Breaking Bad, The Elections, etc, etc Seth MacFarlane, Jessica Chastain… but yeah, for the top spot Lawrence or Tatum.

    I think Anne Hathaway, Channing Tatum, and Jennifer Lawrence will all make the Top 10.

    Seth MacFarlane could be chosen, but the Oscars aren’t until February.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Matthew McConaughey have had great years as well.

    For TV, certainly Claire Danes/Damian Lewis, Louis C.K., and Lena Dunham.

    Jessica Chastain has multiple films plus a new play on Broadway.

    Anne Hathaway! I forgot to mention her. Les Mis, Dark Knight, high visibility.

    Channing Tatum
    Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises, Les Miserables)
    Seth McFarlane
    Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook)

    Wow that’s a really bad choice. Ben Affleck isn’t 2012’s entertainer of the year no matter how you define it (best or biggest).

    I guess congratulations are in order for his publicist and the team behind the “Argo” campaign for getting this “honor”.
