Other notable entries on the list include Justin Bieber, Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon , Colin Firth, President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The real fun of this list is that most of the entries are accompanied by an essay by a notable friend or admirer. Poheler's Parks and Recreation costar Aziz Ansari writes hers ("Amy Poehler is my hero"), Ted Turner interprets Oprah, Jamie Oliver talks Michelle Obama's commitment to health-awareness and novelist/earthly delights expert Jackie Collins takes on Prince William and Kate Middelton. On Weiner, Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss writes, "He is the greatest boss a girl could have, but even more valuable than that, he is also the greatest friend." It's all very A-list schmoozy.
