Im not sure what the staff over at EW.coms problem is, but apparently theyre trying to make me spend my entire life on the internet. Its bad enough I spend half my day transcribing every word on this site in Braille, but now EW.com has to go ahead and post their list of the 50 smartest people in Hollywood. Its not even 25. Its 50. Of course, I just spent the last thirty minutes reading it, and if youre a fan of smart shit, then I suggest you give it a peak too. There are the obvious choices, like J.J. Abrams, Jodie Foster, and Peter Jackson, and there are lesser-knowns like Gustava Santaolalla and Amy Powell. Im surprised by some of the omissions (wheres Leo and Marty?) and I was initially shocked by the number one choice, after reading their reasoning, it makes sense. The list was chosen by determining who shaped Hollywood the most this year, and who is shaping where its headed. In that context, this list seems spot on. Do you guys think anyone was left off the list?

Yeah great article, but whee is Chris Nolan?

He used the completely unique "backwards" style in Memento, re-booted the Batman craze after the tremendously horrible "Batman and Robin", and the ongoing viral campaign is launching The Dark Knight to the most anticipated film of 2008.

Interesting list. But they messed up a few things, like teh last two Bourne movies being cool because of its kinetic, shaky-cam style.

Hah... Spielberg has a nightmare that he's broke.. whatever. Great list by the way.. enjoyed completely, seeing some familiar faces, getting to know people Ive never heard off (and glad that now I have) and even stubbornly refusing the additions of some people (Bruckheimer :p) even tho I agree with all that they say.

I completely agree with their number one, and I have to say overall, that was a good list.
