AceShowbiz - TIME reveals 100 most influential people around the world. Fresh off their Oscar wins, "Fences" actress %cViola Davis% and "La La Land" star %cEmma Stone% are among the Hollywood names making to the list. They are joined by "Deadpool" hunk %cRyan Reynolds%.
The others include %cJames Corden%, %cChance the Rapper%, %cJohn Legend%, %cAshley Graham%, %cLeslie Jones%, %cAlicia Keys%, %cDemi Lovato%, %cMargot Robbie%, and %cEd Sheeran%. Meanwhile, the likes of %cMeryl Streep%, %cLin-Manuel Miranda%, %cBrie Larson% and %cTaylor Swift% each pen an essay to praise each honoree.
Streep gushes about Davis, "Viola has carved a place for herself on the Mount Rushmore of the 21st century - new faces emerging from a neglected mountain. And when she tells the story of how she got from where she was to where she is, it is as if she is on a pilgrimage, following her own footsteps and honoring that journey. Her gifts as an artist are unassailable, undeniable, deep and rich and true. But her importance in the culture - her ability to identify it, her willingness to speak about it and take on responsibility for it - is what marks her for greatness."
Larson applauds Stone, "What I really admire about Emma the person - as well as Emma the actor - is that she is never afraid to show us the most difficult thing you can show the world: yourself. What that entails is not always pretty. But with Emma, it is real, and it is beautiful."
Swift says of best friend Sheeran, "A few years ago, in a rare moment of admitting feeling defeated, Ed said to me, 'I'm never going to win a Grammy.' Yes, you are, I said. You're going to sweep the whole thing one of these years ... A few weeks later ... [he] said, 'You have to hear this.' It was a song he'd just finished called 'Thinking Out Loud,' which would go on to win Song of the Year at the 2016 Grammy Awards."
