Who ISN’T On The Forbes Celebrity 100?

This week, Forbes magazine released its annual list of the 100 most POWERFUL celebrities. Cool list. In this world of constant status anxiety and societally-reinforced low self worth, it is nice to see that some journalists (right? Journalists?) have taken it upon themselves to use MICKEY MOUSE SCIENCE in order to determine EXACTLY how much richer and more successful some people widely recognized to be very rich and very successful are in relation to each other (not you, you are garbage). Oh, and this list comes out ever year? Perfect.

You can see the full list after the jump (and CONGRATULATIONS to Mariska Hargitay for making it just under the wire), if you want. It’s definitely 100 people that you already knew were rich and famous, arrayed in an order that makes no inherent sense (how is Pink ranked higher than Tom Hanks, Glenn Beck, and Stephanie Meyer?). More fun, of course, is to see who ISN’T on the list. Better luck next year to:

  • Paula Poundstone
  • Billy Bush
  • Jonathan Lipnicki
  • Jaime Lee Curtis

And more! Better luck next year to literally thousands of people! Please feel free to leave your well-wishes for someone who did not make the cut in the 2010 Videogum Comments About The 2010 Forbes Celebrity 100 List.
