(LOS ANGELES) — Industry trade The Hollywood Reporter has released its list of the 100 Most Powerful People in Hollywood, and while it’s a who’s-who of prime movers behind the scenes of TV and movies, there are also lots of names known to anyone not in show business.
Leonardo DiCaprio made #10, for example, buoyed by his recent best actor Oscar win for The Revenant. Leo even managed to top his Catch Me if You Can director Steven Spielberg, who ranked #16.
Other famous names include Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, at #21. Oprah Winfrey scored the 22nd slot, just ahead of Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, who ranks 23rd.
Marvel was also well represented — not surprisingly, seeing as how the Disney-owned studio has had a string of billion-dollar-making blockbusters. The studio’s president, Kevin Feige ranked 18. His Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., who’s also the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, made it to 97. Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt squeaked on to the list at #99 on the strength of the billion-dollar performance of Jurassic World.
Coming it at #1 was Bob Iger, the CEO of the Walt Disney Company, the parent of ABC News, which also owns the Star Wars and Marvel Studios franchises, as well as animated movie studio Pixar.
