THE PREMIERE POWER LIST

During the 1990s, PREMIERE started printing an annual list of the 100 most powerful people in Hollywood. Basically, you were on the list if you were able to get a project green lit simply because your name was attached. The easier it was perceived to be, the higher the number. Of all the lists that could ever be invented, this collection of names was one of the most controversial by far. People were on it at various times, only to fall off and not be reinstated for years on end – or sometimes not at all.

Every year there would be raised eyebrows, various resentments, severe indignation and even incendiary ire connected to the publishing of this list – by both industry people and the public at large. But PREMIERE had savvy writers on staff who interviewed prestigious members of the film community year round. They felt it was an accurate annual assessment of the Hollywood hierarchy and they stood by their articles.

Several years ago, they scaled the list down from 100 to 50.

This is the power list for 2007 and here are how my favourite people fared:

45. JODIE FOSTER
37. JULIA ROBERTS
36. STEVE CARELL
33. RUSSELL CROWE
32. ANGELINA JOLIE
25. GEORGE CLOONEY
17. GEORGE LUCAS
15. BRAD PITT
14. JOHNNY DEPP
6. STEVEN SPIELBERG
