Time Magazine has revealed its 2018 List of the World’s 100 Most Influential People, which includes a wide array of notable figures, from TV personalities like Roseanne Barr and Jimmy Kimmel to “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler.
The list is broken down into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Icons and Titans. Each person on the list is introduced with a short profile written by another notable figure — like the Duffer Brothers, Bill Gates, Aly Raisman, Cher, Adele.
The first category, Pioneers, includes the likes of Cardi B, Tiffany Haddish, Kumail Nanjiani and Parkland Survivors Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez and Alex Wind — the latter whose profile was written by Barack Obama.
Artists on the list include “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler, Roseanne Barr, Jimmy Kimmel, Greta Gerwig, Millie Bobby Brown and Lena Waithe. Leaders included Donald Trump, Robert Mueller and Kim Jong Un, as well as Prince Harry and his fiancé Meghan Markle.
Icons on the list include “Black Panther” star Chadwick Boseman, Olympic darling Adam Rippon, and Ronan Farrow, Jodi Kantor and Megan Twoey. The three reporters’ profile was written by Ashley Judd.
Finally, in the Titans category, Oprah, Jeff Bezos, and Cindy Holland all made the list.
In Time’s article introducing the list, Edward Felsenthal wrote, that the list is a “designation of individuals whose time, in our estimation, is now.”
“The TIME 100 isn’t a measure of power, though many on the list wield it,” he continued. “Nor is it a collection of milestones accumulated. As our staff considers candidates, we often find ourselves wowed by those with stunning lifetime achievements. But editorial director Dan Macsai, maestro of the TIME 100, brings us back to the key question: Was this their year?”
