For the first time, the Hollywood Reporter has put together a list of the 100 most powerful people in entertainment, though it's what Paste Magazine describes as a list "celebrating the accomplishments of … white guys." Only 19 women and 10 people of color make the cut. THR acknowledges the stat—"We won’t need social media, thanks anyway, to drop an anvil on our heads to realize this"—but says the list reflects currently reality, not what current reality should be. Here's the top 10:

  1. Bob Iger, Disney CEO
  2. Rupert Murdoch and sons, 21st Century Fox
  3. Leslie Moonves, CBS President and CEO
  4. Steve Burke, CEO of NBCUniversal
  5. Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer
  6. Shari Redstone and Sumner Redstone of Viacom and CBS
  7. Jeff Bewkes, Time Warner Chairman and CEO
  8. Peter Rice, Chairman and CEO of Fox
  9. Alan Horn, Walt Disney Studios Chairman
  10. Leonardo DiCaprio, actor and producer
