The Hollywood Reporter’s 2021 Women in Entertainment Power 100

While the past 14 months may have seen a shift in the usual benchmarks for success, these execs, filmmakers, showrunners and multihyphenates rose above the turmoil with vision and resilience. Regina King, Donna Langley and, yes, Meghan Markle are among THR's annual list of women dominating a still-reeling industry.

For its 29th annual Women in Entertainment Power 100, THR focuses on the execs, filmmakers, showrunners, producers and actors who made moves in a year unlike any other. And in creating this list of entertainment’s top female leaders, editors considered portfolio sizes, series loads, TV ratings, awards hauls, deals, employees overseen, revenue/profit generated, subscriber counts and what box office there was to report.

Edited by Mikey O’Connell. Profiles written by Kirsten Chuba, Ashley Cullins, Rebecca Ford, Mia Galuppo, Carolyn Giardina, Lesley Goldberg, Rebecca Keegan, Pamela McClintock, Mikey O’Connell, Lacey Rose, Bryn Sandberg, Tatiana Siegel and Rebecca Sun.
