    I love her but 2 big projects at the end of the year isn’t a whole lot to qualify you. It happened with Sandra Bullock in 2013 with The Heat and Gravity and my god Ben Affleck in 2012. Cool you directed and starred in 1 movie. Didn’t entertain me all year though. People like Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, and Elizabeth Banks work their asses off all year with so many diverse projects and they get no acknowledgement. Like look at their resumes just for this year: 

    Hader:
    Trainwreck
    Inside Out
    Documentary Now!
    SNL 40th
    Brooklyn Nine Nine

    Wiig:
    Diary of a Teenage Girl 
    Welcome to Me
    The Spoils Before Dying
    SNL 40th
    A Deadly Adoption
    Wet Hot American Summer
    The Martian
    Nasty Baby

    Banks:
    Love and Mercy
    Pitch Perfect (actor AND director)
    Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
    Wet Hot American Summer
    SNL
    Magic Mike XXL
    The Muppets
    Moonbeam City

    Lawrence:
    Mockingjay Part 2
    Joy
    Serena

    Like is that really fair?  It would make more sense in a year where she had more than 2 projects

    To be fair, she was looked favorably upon by EW when the whole Sony email hack scandal which revealed Lawrence, despite her tremendous track record at the boxoffice wound up getting paid less than her male co-stars on American Hustle.  Which begat her now famous essay about just how much women are screwed in the pay scale department in Hollywood.

    Fair? That’s not fair, that’s high profile two-hundred plus years after the fact stuff.

    Take a look at that nominee list, and tell me who sells the most EW mags.

    Who comes the closest?  Taylor?

    Not that I’m not happy she spoke  out……as have, so many other terrific, Oscar-calibre/ winning actors.

    Wait.  I’m confused.  Is it still 2012?

    I looked at past winners of this award. How did the cast of Grey’s Anatomy win this, but not the cast of Breaking Bad or The Sopranos???

    Their demographics skew mostly women. Plus, take a look at the ads on both sides of their pages.

    I hate to say this about my own gender, but…..

    The choice does seem a bit off. Sure, JLaw had a really good year, but it didn’t really pick up until the end of the year. I thought this would easily be a title for Amy Schumer to grab, but as others have stated, JLaw sells more magazines. Chris Pratt and Taylor Swift would’ve also been deserving of the title. But I suppose it’s not entirely illogical to pick Jennifer as the Entertainer of the Year.

    I think Jennifer Lawrence was overdue in a sense for this prize- she is after all, everywhere. I wasn’t expecting this year though. Her SLP year (2012) would have made more sense.
