The annual list was published Thursday, featuring blurbs on each individual by other celebrities. "In her role as Olivia Pope, Scandal's unflappable political fixer, Kerry Washington has used her grace and vibrant magnetism to transcend age, race and gender, and to provide a new mainstream media lens through which to view modern womanhood and professional excellence," Valerie Jarrett writes.
Among the other entertainment industry folks in the Top 100 are Beyonce (who graces the cover), Robert Redford, Carrie Underwood, Robin Wright, Seth Meyers, Miley Cyrus, Matthew McConaughey and director Steve McQueen.
