Time 100 Honors Salma Hayek, Michael B. Jordan, Colin Farrell Among ‘Most Influential People’ In Annual Listing

Angela Bassett, Austin Butler, Doja Cat, and King Charles III are on the list.

Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” list was announced today. Each year, the media outlet honors 100 individuals that it perceives as holding sway, pairing the list with praiseful blurbs from contemporaries. The logrolling list contains comedians, sports stars, authors and other influential figures.

The list was first published in 1999. Nominations are secured from Time 100 alumni and the international writing staff. The final list is exclusively chosen by Time editors. There is also a commemorative gala held to celebrate the list winners.
