Photos: Jennifer Lawrence & Elizabeth Banks included in EW’s Entertainers of the Year list

Entertainment Weekly named Jennifer Lawrence the Entertainer of the Year, earlier in its latest December issue.

Jennifer Lawrence is that celebrity rarity — as effervescent, irreverent, and charming as she appears through the lens of talk shows, red carpets, and acceptance speeches. At 25 it feels as though Lawrence has already lived a few Hollywood lives. Beginning with her remarkable, Oscar-nominated breakout in 2010’s gritty Winter’s Bone, she’s kept busy over the past five years with box-office-busting franchises, but in between she managed to sneak in a couple David O. Russell films. This Christmas she and Russell have teamed up again for Joy, the story of one woman’s rise to power and wealth that unfolds over four decades.

The outlet has released the full list of its 2015 Entertainers of the Year and a second The Hunger Games actress – Elizabeth Banks – has found her place on it.

From saying goodbye to one history-making franchise to taking the helm of another, the actress-director hit all the right notes in 2015. Fans aren’t the only ones upset to bid farewell to Banks’ eccentric Effie Trinket in the final Hunger Games installment,Mockingjay – Part 2, in theaters now. “I’m very sad,” Banks, 41, admits to EW. “She became really iconic. I think I’ve made more out of Effie than anyone imagined, including (author) Suzanne Collins.”

Others on the list include the cast of Game of Thrones, which will also mean Mockingjay movies cast members Natalie Dormer and Gwendoline Christie, Taylor Swift, who sang Safe and Sound for The Hunger Games companion album, Jennifer’s latest co-stars Chris Pratt and Aziz Ansari, among others.
