These Are TIME’s 100 Most Influential People of 2017

Time magazine revealed its annual list of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” on Thursday, April 20 — and this year’s group includes a few surprises among the many obvious choices.

Oscar winner Viola Davis, Grammy winner John Legend, rapper and actor Riz Ahmed, Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos and philanthropist Melinda Gates graced the five different covers of this year’s issue.

Dozens of Hollywood stars also made the cut. The “Artists” category includes A-listers such as Emma Stone, Ed Sheeran, Alicia Keys, Ryan Reynolds, Leslie Jones, Margot Robbie, Sarah Paulson, James Corden and Demi Lovato. Meanwhile, Samantha Bee, Chance the Rapper, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were a few of the big names on the “Pioneers” list.

Once again, Pope Francis and President Donald Trump made the list in the “Leaders” category, while Tom Brady and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel nabbed coveted space in the “Titans” section. The “Icons” category ranges from Olympic sensation Simone Biles to plus-size model Ashley Graham.
