Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a certified critical and commercial success. Everywhere you go, you’re reminded the space saga is back and stronger than ever. It’s no wonder why the Associated Press bestowed the film with its Entertainer of the Year award. Voters were asked to consider who had the most influence on entertainment and culture in 2015.
“In a year full of sequels, reboots and returns, none have recaptured the zeitgeist like ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,'” wrote Nick Dutro of The Advertiser-Tribune in Tiffin, Ohio.
The intergalactic flick beat out big names for the title including Taylor Swift, Amy Schumer and Adele. Those three ladies had huge years, but were no match for the 40-year-old franchise. Others in the running for the honor were Jon Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis and the Kardashians.
Do you think the AP chose correctly? If not, who do you think deserves the honor the most? Sound off below.
