Rowling named Best Entertainer

Rowling named Best Entertainer

London, November 24

HARRY POTTER creator JK Rowling has topped the list of 2007’s top Entertainers. US magazine Entertainment Weekly said that the 42-year-old author deserves an accolade for getting ‘people to tote around her big, old-fashioned printed-on-paper books as if they were the hottest new entertainment devices on the planet’. The magazine’s editors had divided the list into five categories other than the entertainers’ category. They were prodigies, class clowns, most popular, most buzzed-about and valedictorians. Actor, director and activitist George Clooney also made it to the list as a valedictorian, because he has ‘deftly balanced box-office viability with personal responsibility’. Scottish actor Gerard Butler, and troubled singer Amy Winehouse were highlighted as among the most buzz-worthy in the list.
