Each year The Hollywood Reporter publishes its list of the 100 most Powerful Women in Hollywood. These women are the movers and shakers who help shape the entertainment industry. When looking ahead to 2012, THR suggests there are some women to keep an eye on, and Whedonverse’s Felicia Day makes the cut.
The 2011’s list of honorees include (in no particular order) Nina Tassler, President of CBS; Oprah Winfrey; Sue Naegle, President, HBO Entertainment; Kathleen Kennedy, Producer; Bonnie Hammer, Chairman, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, with the top spot going to Anne Sweeney, Co-Chairman, Disney Media Networks President, Disney/ABC Television Group, to name just a few of the 100 talented women.
On the list of eleven watchable women who may grace the 2012 list, is Amy Israel, SVP Original Programming, Showtime; Susie Fitzgerald, SVP Scripted Development and Current Programming, AMC, eight other notables and Felicia Day, Digital Entrepreneur.
Day gained popularity when she starred in Joss Whedon’s web short, Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and for creating, writing, producing and starring in her own web series, The Guild. She was recently seen in a recurring role on SyFy’s Eureka, and took the lead in another web series, Dragon Age: Redemption. Lately she was seen in the SyFy reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood, Red: Werewolf Hunter. Aside from being the mastermind behind her own web series, Felicia stays busy guesting on a variety of popular television series and with her twitter account, which has a following of nearly two million people.
We’re looking forward to seeing Felicia’s name on that list next December!
