The Most Hardcore Current TV Characters
The most badass current TV characters include men and women who, though they do not exist in reality, are fearless in today's television landscape. The most badass characters on television are the ones who threaten the status quo, stand up for what they believe in, and get the job done. That includes fictional presidents like Selina Meyer (from VEEP on HBO) and Frank Underwood (from House of Cards on Netflix). It also includes old school divas who kick butt, like Rayna James on Nashville, as well as effective criminals, like James Spader's Raymond Reddington on The Blacklist.
Some of the most badass characters currently on TV are heroes like Matt Murdoch from Daredevil and Melinda May from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But badass television characters can be everyday people too. Take, for instance, Ilana Wexler on Broad City. She lives life her own way (even if it's not always legal). Maybe you'll find some inspiration to live life however you see fit from badass TV characters like Empire's Cookie Lyon who just don't give a damn.
From Olivia Pope to Lucious Lyon, who do you think is the most badass character who can currently be seen on TV in 2017-2018? The list features characters from The 100, The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones, but if you think we're missing any badass TV characters, add them!

The Best Current Pop Groups/Singers
A list of the best current pop groups and singers who are making some of the best pop songs of 2018. The battle between pop music fans will always rage over who is the top pop star in the world. Each pop star's fanbase is highly opinionated and will always argue on behalf of their hero or heroine. This list is determined to figure out who is the biggest pop star alive. Why? Because pop stars are generally at the center of the music universe. They sell out arenas and stadiums. Pop songs are always on top-40 radio, which means their catchy hooks, radio-friendly beats and the group's crowd-friendly and darn near perfect makes both guys and girls scream OMG whenever their favorite pop star is near them. If you turn on the radio and do not hear anyone on this list at any given moment, then they aren't considered a gigantic superstar.
Several of the pop groups and pop stars on this list are considered among the greatest pop stars of all time. That's no easy feat. You'll see some of the biggest names in pop music on this list. One Direction, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift have some of the most rabid fan bases of any musician out there today. One Direction's fans go nuts whenever they see their favorite group, so this is the chance to defend their honor by voting them the best current pop group on this list. The same goes for the Beliebers, all of them just happen to be fans of popular singing groups. Ensure Justin gets his due in the pantheon of current popular artists by voting for him.
This is your chance to vote for your favorite current pop group or pop star. If you think that someone is missing, feel free to add. Vote or rerank this list according to who you think should be considered the best pop star out today!

Also, if a particular host that annoys you isn't listed, feel free to add them.
No list of annoying television hosts would be complete without the reality television presenters such as Ryan Seacrest, Survivor host Jeff Probst and Chris Harrison, host of ABC's The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
And then there's the talk show hosts! Larry King could certainly be annoying, but what about his CNN prime-time replacement, Piers Morgan. And what about the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Nancy Grace, Bill O'Reilly, Matt Lauer and yes, even Katie Couric. Does she deserve a gold star for being annoying on the most different networks!And from the late night talk show arena? Do hosts likeChelsea Handler, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, and -- gasp -- Conan O'Brien deserve to rank high on the list? Everyone's entitled to an opinion. Now have yours!

The Greatest Actors Who Have Never Won an Oscar (for Acting)
There are many actors who haven't won an Oscar. For 95 percent of the acting population, there is probably a good reason they haven't taken home one of film's most prestigious honors. Only two actors per year can win either the Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor Oscars, leaving eight other nominees with nothing. And all of the other actors in the biz out in the cold.
But does the Academy always get it right? There are plenty of actors who haven't won an Oscar despite the fact that they’ve turned in amazing performances. Whether it’s due to stellar competition, bad luck, or an out-and-out snub, some artists have never gotten the recognition they deserve.
Johnny Depp, Edward Norton, and Brad Pitt are all big draws at the box office who haven't received the same respect of the Academy that they have from audiences. While they've all been nominated for Oscars, they've never taken home the big prize. Other top actors without Oscars include Liam Neeson, Robert Downey, Jr.. Matt Damon, Joaquin Phoenix, and Michael Fassbender. This list of Hollywood celebrities who have no Academy Awards also includes black actors, like Will Smith, and famous classic stars, like Peter O'Toole and Cary Grant. How these people never won an Oscar will always be a mystery!
There are a surprising number of big name actors who haven't won an Oscar. It's up to you to determine which of these men is the greatest.

The Best Rock Vocalists
The best rock vocalists of all time are the frontmen of our favorite rock bands or those solo artists whose voices are some of the best ever. These talented men and women of rock could easily captivate audiences with just their vocals. Their voices set them and their bands above the rest and define them as the best rock singers of all time. List includes both men and women.
To be included on this list, the vocalists must be primarily known for their association with rock music and (obviously) must have a great voice. That really doesn't narrow down the many greatest rock singers in recent rock music history, though a certain few stand out as above and beyond all the rest. Greats like Robert Plant, David Bowie, Steve Perry and Neil Young come to mind, as do icons like Bono, Mick Jagger and Bruce Springsteen.
While there are many notable vocalists of today's rock music, arguably many of the best rock vocalists of all time are those from earlier generations. Elvis Presley, Freddie Mercury from Queen, John Lennon from The Beatles, Jim Morrison from The Doors and Bob Dylan are only a few of some of the best rock vocalists ever but also some of the most influential singers of all time. Freddie Mercury especially had an amazing voice and was ranked second only to Mariah Carey by MTV for the best voices in music ever.A perfect combination of range, power, articulation and control is needed to become one of the greatest vocalists of all time. All of those can be taught but the natural ability to have that golden voice, as all of these great rock vocalists possess, is nothing that can be learned. Have a favorite rock singer that we missed? Think one vocalist should be above another? Want to put these singers in your own order? You can do all that and more be voting on, re-ranking and adding rock vocalists below! Rock on!

The Most Beautiful Women of All Time
List of the most beautiful women of all time: ranked not on talent or accomplishments, but on looks alone. This is a test to see if the so-called "wisdom of the crowd" will actually be able to determine who the most beautiful woman of all time is. If you'd like to rank these women on more than their beauty, consult The Best Actresses in Film History list. This list does not only include the prettiest current actresses, but the most beautiful women in history.
So, who is the most beautiful woman ever? Of course, that woman may very well be a total unknown, but since it's impossible to list every woman who's ever existed, and one is less likely to rank people they don't know, this list will obviously be restricted to people who've achieved a fair level of celebrity. A "fair level of celebrity" is defined by being famous enough to have a profile page on Wikipedia or IMDB. Historical figures are accepted IF pictures of them are generally accepted as accurate. Add your own suggestions and this should hopefully be an ever expanding list.These ladies are the top of the list in the conversation for sexiest woman ever and prettiest woman in the world. These are the hottest women of all time, definitely in the top 10 most beautiful women ever.

The Best New Shows That Premiered in 2018

From new Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video original series to premium cable miniseries, plenty of 2018 TV shows will have you hooked fast.
Given the current popularity of the dystopian narrative, it's no surprise many shows that premiered in 2018 take place in a dismal futuristic setting. Altered Carbon, for example, is a sci-fi drama that takes place 250 years in the future. Reality series continue to be a staple of the airwaves, with shows like Love & Hip Hop: Miami, The Four: Battle for Stardom, and The Bachelor Winter Games taking off.

The Best War Movies Ever
This list ranks the best movies about war, battles, and military conflicts. These films recreate some of the most significant events in world history from a variety of perspectives and with a variety of purposes and intentions. Some top war films attempt to recreate as realistically as possible the events they depict, either from an omniscient perspective permitted by historical study or from the point of view of the soldiers and civilians involved in the conflict itself. Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down, for example, was both praised in its time and heavily criticized for bringing a "you are there" sense of realism - and little outside or cultural perspective - to a recreation of the Battle of Mogadishu. The best war movies of all time differ widely in their handling of the subject matter, but they all strike a chord with viewers now and in the time when they came out.
Some of the greatest war films use war as a backdrop to look at larger issues - such as man's inhumanity to man or the crippling impact of post-traumatic stress - or just as a meditation on war itself. Still other films like Glory and Band of Brothers examine the personal drama of a few individuals, and mine it for larger insights about the meaning of war and the impact that violence has on individual human lives.
Finally, some war films - particularly those made during the classic Hollywood era - are simply adventure films with war providing a compelling setting and situation. The Great Escape, for example, remains a classic not because of its grand ideas about the nature of war, but because it is a ceaselessly entertaining spectacle. No matter what type of film, there's no denying that these are certainly the best war movies ever.
Vote up your favorite war films to move them up the list, and if your favorites are not yet represented, make your own version of the list and add them!

Competition to get on the television remains intense, but has lessened over the years, as extensive cable packages and streaming options have exploded the number of new TV series being produced. Of course, this opened up opportunities for stations like AMC and FX to experiment with exciting new programming, but also allows for innumerable bad knock-offs, stupid reality competitions and painfully unfunny comedies.

Featuring popular sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory and New Girl, this list of current shows that need to be canceled include several of today's most watched TV shows. Every year, audiences wonder why so many poorly written and acted shows are produced by networks, but programs like Keeping Up with the Kardashians continue to bring in record-breaking viewership numbers.
Basic cable channels, particularly MTV and Bravo, seem to be singled out on the list a bit, with entries like The Real World, The Challenge, and the Real Housewives... series taking up a number of the top spots. The list of shows in 2017-2018 that should be canceled also includes a number of once-beloved shows that are seen as "past their prime" or overdue for cancelation.

The Best Anime Series of All Time
You love anime but what tops this list of the best anime series ever made? Top anime series include shows like Death Note, Attack on Titan, and so much more. Plus, with so much new anime debuting each year, the list of best anime will only grow. The blanket term "anime" in the US can refer to any animation originating in Japan, and specifically differentiates a few aspects of Japanese animation from more Western styles. For example, the top comedy animes can be be much more explicit in their humor. This includes the Japanese propensity to feature adult themes and stories in animation, as opposed to Western "cartoons" aimed primarily at children, as well as the exaggerated, fantasy-oriented and colorful style of Japanese animated visuals.
Anime can refer either to animated films or TV series, furthering the confusion. (Anime is often incorrectly used to refer to Japanese comic books as well. These are actually known as "manga," though many anime series are based on or inspired by popular manga.) Check out the best anime of 2014 for newer recommendations!
Anime TV series first found popularity outside of Japan in the 1980s and have continued to find larger and larger audiences in the West. A number of popular anime shows originating in Japan - such as Cowboy Bebop or Dragon Ball Z - have found enthusiastic audiences for dubbed versions in English speaking countries. (Pokemon, a series inspired by Nintendo's blockbuster series of video games, has been an ongoing hit franchise in both Japan and the US.) The anime style has grown so popular in the US, it has stared to significantly influence the style and aesthetics of American animation. Shows such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, Afro Samurai and Samurai Jack have borrowed heavily from anime in terms of pacing, subject matter, and design.
This list collects the best Japanese anime TV series of all time. American series that have been influenced by anime, such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, are not included. Forget a top 10 anime list- ours has over 200 entries!
