The Celebrity: Tyler Perry
Why He Should Have Been Included: Though he's been nominated in the past by TIME (he was a part of the 2008 class) his recent blow-up directed at Spike Lee proves to us that he's not going anywhere and he's not afraid to back down from anyone. That warrants another appearance to us.
What He Can Do To Make Sure He Makes It Next Year: Put out more movies and continue doing what he's been doing for the better part of the last decade. You don't have to agree with the way Perry does business—but you do have to agree that he does things on his terms these days and he's not going to apologize to anyone for doing them.
