A To D List - The Rankings - Part Six

Jim Carrey – Former A+ list mostly movie actor who got his start on a long running hit network show and can’t seem to get his A+ list status back.
Jimmy Fallon – A list talk show host who can’t keep a straight face.
Jimmy Kimmel – A list talk show host who is not above stepping on a few backs to get to the top.
Joan Rivers – Permanent B list comedienne who is running on batteries at this point.
Jodie Foster- B list mostly movie actress/director who is an Academy Award winner/nominee
Joe Pesci – B list mostly movie actor who some say has seen his better days in acting. One character, many types of movies.
Jon Favreau – A list director who dabbles in acting and is much more known for his acting despite only being a B list actor.
John Goodman – B list mostly movie actor who has entered the world of almost television.
John Mellencamp- Former A+ list entertainer(singer) who hangs out with a heavily botoxed former A list mostly movie actress.
John Travolta- Former A+ list mostly movie actor who will be an A lister without doing anything else for another decade.
Johnny Depp – Former A+ list mostly movie actor who has dropped to A list after some really bad personal and professional choices.
Jon Bon Jovi- Permanent A list entertainer(singer) who is aging but can still rock.
Jon Hamm – A list mostly television actor from a hit cable show who will probably drop to B once it ends.
Jonah Hill – A list mostly movie comic actor who never met a higher ranking celebrity he couldn’t suck up to.
Jonas Brothers – All of them are former A list tweeners and one of them is a B list reality star in a very fake looking marriage.
Joseph Fiennes- Foreign born B- list mostly movie actor.
Joseph Gordon Levitt – B+ list mostly movie actor who got his start on one of the more well known network television shows. Had his chance to take the A list by the reigns and stumbled.
Josh Brolin- B+ list mostly movie actor offspring who would be A list if he was nicer and didn’t cheat or drink or get in fights.
Judi Dench – Aging foreign born B+ list mostly movie actress who is welcome to come have some drinks at my place anytime.
Julia Louis Dreyfus – A- list mostly television actress who is on a hit cable show that won’t match the hit network show she was on for popularity no matter how big it gets,.
Julianna Marguiles – A- list mostly television actress who should probably be B list but keeps picking some of the best shows on television in which to star. An amazing actress.
Kat Dennings – B+ list mostly television actress who would be A- if she had her own network show and didn’t have to share.
Kate Beckinsale – B- list mostly movie actress who would be higher or lower depending on movie success if she did something other than one character.
Cate Blanchett – Foreign born permanent B list mostly movie actress who is known as an ice queen. Once cracked a smile.
Kate Winslet – Foreign born A- list mostly movie actress from one of the biggest films of all time who seems great and fun to hang out with and is as long as you never ever make her mad.

Say what?

cubsfan1990 said...

Can someone explain me this A to Z celeb blind items?

LottaColada said...

I pretty much agree with everyone except for Judi Dench. How is she NOT A+? The woman is so talented and a multiple Oscar nominee.

Renoblondee said...

I have msny issues with this one. Lol. At least Kate W is finally A.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

So Cate Blanchett and Jaden Smith are on the same level. Good to know.

Simon said...

John goodman is now all movies is he not? Roseanne started like 30 years ago I think

Simon said...

Can't believe cate blanchett not A list

LottaColada said...

Oh and Jonah Hill is A now. *eyeroll*

StewMcG said...

John Goodman just did a season of an Amazon Prime show called "Alpha House", so I guess that's what Enty means by "almost television".

QueenAnne Guido said...

So despite very different resumes(both quality and quantity) Joe pesci and John Goodman are both B.

iMHO Pesci is c at best. Show me recent paystub.

Maureen said...

How could Cate Blanchett be a B movie actress? She just won the Academy Award! I guess that didn't count any more.

QueenAnne Guido said...

Dame Judi will cut Enty for this. DON'T eff with the Most Excellent Order Of The British Empire without a pack of rabid Queen lovers rending you.

Violet said...

Gobsmacked at the Judi Dench rating. What is the world coming to?.

marymo10 said...

How is Cate Blanchett a B lister? And I never got the ice queen vibe from her. I thought Enty reserved that for Nicole Kidman. Confused...

Anna Belle said...

If my grandparents do not know who they are they are not A list

Maureen said...

Judi Dench is forever A list in my book. She played QEI and QEII most effectively to the point where Prince William called her Granny. Doesn't get better than that. Who puts the Queen as B list? That's just silly

Amartel said...

Jodie Foster and Cate Blanchett are not "B List". Sorry, but there is way too much subjectivity in the criteria for who falls off the A List and who is "permanently" A List. Foster is permanently A List IMAO. Blanchett is currently A List.

8=====D aka Lil Tool. KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

Jodie Foster has a ton of academy awards and is rated B, I guess that doesn't give any f word anymore to the ratings.

Shark Week said...

I can't believe it's not butter!

StewMcG said...

Maureen, you're thinking of Helen Mirren (she's the one Prince William called Granny.)

Aeol said...

Jonah Hill is A list and Jodie Foster and Cate Blanchette are B list? Enty's world is upside down. At least I can comfort myself with the knowledge that this is just Enty's opinion and not actually true in the business.

Thomas Fisher said...

I think both Jodie Foster and Cate Blanchett are A list. Everybody around the world knows and respects both of them. In my book that is the definition of being an A lister.Side note (I hate put people into categories, am I the only one?)

Olivia Black said...

Hamm should be A++++++, when not wearing any undies.

hollywood dime said...

Instead of using so much time and energy by making this bible with every celebrity ever and giving them ratings based on your own biases, wouldn't it have been easier to just define what the parameters of what 'A+, A, B' etc are and let the readers decide who falls into what definition? It would keep the blinds fun and people won't try to refer to this nonsense that will obviously change every time a blind I written. Or I don't know, use better and more adjectives than just 'A+++ list with D list name recognition'. Write better and this list is unnecessary.

msgirl said...

Crazy - I agree with what everyone said about Cate and Judi and Jodie. I think these ratings show where Anty is coming from - a young demographic that watches lots of reality shows! Therefore all about money instead of talent and artistry. Well I may disagree but it does help clarify the blinds.

msgirl said...

Hahaha Enty not Anty

Jessi said...

Just goes to show, this list is still a bunch of bullshit.

T. E. Cuz said...

the list has just a few mistakes, the rest are okay...
jonah hill b+
joseph gordon levitt - a- and my soulmate
cate blanchett - a (maybe a-)
john goodman - mostly movie, former a, current a-

at least now they can quit the weird jonas brothers jokes/insults... p.s. one of them has an impressive resume despite his disney past

parissucksliterally said...

Cate Blanchett should be A. Oscar Winner, class all around....


how did you come up with these reasons for their place on the list? they make no sense.

parissucksliterally said...

JODIE is B list?

*throws hands in the air*

HOW can she have the same rating as BLOWHAN?

I give up.

Topper Madison said...

I guess I'm the only one who thinks Joan Rivers is an A+ legend. Obviously whoever wrote this knows NOTHING about her actual ground-breaking standup career.

rajahcat said...

this is nuts
Kate Winslet ranked below Cate Blanchett?

and Judi Dench??? All are A list and Dench is A+

rajahcat said...

oh and Jodie Foster too--A list perhaps A+

"Hammaconda" is A+++++++

Maria said...

How on earth Jodie Foster is B while Jonnah Hill make it to the A.

fancyscreenname said...

+1@hdime

Maria said...

I'm getting the awful feeling that in this list doesn't count talent and skills but clout and media attention. Gossip whores (male and female) have more relevance that respected and talented.

Maria said...

@msgirl totally agree with you.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Cate Blanchett a B list actress? Two Oscars and Box office earnings of seven billion. Are you fucking high?

T. E. Cuz said...

@maria yes... this list/ranking is based off audience opinion and visiblity, being a household name, etc. and maybe a litttttttle talent sprinkled in.

Tara said...

Bon Jovi's ranking makes me wonder about all of those rocker blinds that I only guessed Tyler, Jagger, Richards, etc. for..

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Where's John Williams?

Sara said...

I'm enjoying the lists and generally agreeing until now, but c'mon: Jodie Foster is permanent A list! and Cate Blanchett is at LEAST A-

anon said...

So Jodie Foster and Joe Pesci are both B LISTERS! Enties - put down the crack pipe! No way Jodie is B and no WAY is she the same rank as Joe Pesci

Amartel said...

Meanwhile, here in Facepalm, USA, Kenya Moore is a B-lister. Just like Jodie Foster and Joe Pesci and Cate Blanchett.

JoElla said...

Wait a sec.. you but Queen Cate in the same catagory as the Jenner unholy offspring?!

*stomps off in disgust*

Sherry said...

Don't understand how some of the most talented and decorated ladies are B list. I'm thinking someone doesn't watch Foreign or Indy films that get awards.

Enty ratings: smh

Walt Driscoll said...

Foster - Permanent A List (What more does a girl need to do)

Blanchett - A (Possibly -)

Dench - A (possibly -)

Jonah Hill - B+ at a huge push. More like a B.

vodianova said...

Well at least Winslet is finally considered A List. Seriously, she's been A list since Titanic came out. The woman has accomplished so much. She should be A without the minus.

Blanchett and Dench should be at least A- list. Also, how the FUCK is Foster B list?!!!?!?!?!?!

0_0 said...

Reigns? Gordon-Levitt taking the reigns? It's reins, as in horse reins, goddamit.

Alita said...

High Five @marymo10, same thought - did our Ents mistake Cate Blanchet for Nicole Kidman there???

It's hard for me to assess American-viewed list ratings for 'foreign' (I mean not American ;) actors, because we share not the common cultural ground.

I'm taking from the reaction though that, like me, you guys think Cate Blanchet is deserving of more than a B.

TLP said...

Blanchet has 2 Oscars and tons of other rewards. She's a permanent A as long as she stays in the business, IMHO
