When I first read about the Time 100 Finalists for the magazine’s annual list of the world’s most influential people, I thought “Why are they calling them finalists when there are only a 100 of them? Aren’t they they just the winners then?” But there are more than 100 finalists who will be whittled down to the vaunted Time 100 by the readers of the Internets. Nikke Fink, of Deadline Hollywood fame, made the list this year and she’s looking for some love (votes). As she puts it:
I’ve got pretty stiff competition: popes, kings, princes, heads of state, CEOs, rappers, superstar actors, politicians, Internet billionaires, as well as Judd Apatow and Rupert Murdoch and Patric Verrone. But do any of them give you the daily lowdown on the real business of Hollywood (or call Jeff Zucker a putz and Bob Shaye a prick)? Nah!
