2019 was full of tremendous movies, music, television, and pop-culture moments. And overall, there were a lot of celebrities who were part of them and had a memorable year. Here are the celebrities who had a great 2019 and stole the show.
Not only did Sandra Oh win a Golden Globe for "Killing Eve," but the actress became the first Asian-American to host the event.
Billy Porter broke down barriers in 2019 when he became the first openly gay black man to get nominated in a lead acting category at the Emmys. He won an award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a drama for his role in "Pose," and he's also one award away from being an EGOT winner (he just needs the O).
Jennifer Aniston broke Instagram when she joined the platform, which already secured her place on this list. Her successful television show ("The Morning Show" on Apple TV) and her People's Choice Award for People's Icon also added to her memorable year.
Billboard's Women of the Year, Forbes Highest-Earning Musicians, record-breaker at the American Music Awards, Artist of the Decade at the American Music Awards - this list of achievements Taylor Swift had this year goes on and on. She also released a new album, "Lover," and co-starred in "Cats."
In 2019, Billie Eilish blossomed into a full-blown pop star. She's been nominated for 6 Grammys, so all signs point towards a great 2020 as well.
Rihanna has had a jam-packed 2019. Being named by Forbes as the world's richest musician, and starring in her first Savage X Fenty show were just a few them. But we're still waiting for that new album!
The success of "Hustlers" was just one aspect of Jennifer Lopez's 2019. She also got engaged, got nominated for a Golden Globe, and got named the 2020 Super Bowl performer. 2020 might be her year as well.
2019 was Lizzo's year. She twerked her way into our hearts and earned eight GRAMMY nominations along the way. She was also named Time's Entertainer of the Year, and she was one of Entertainment Weekly's Entertainers of the Year as well.
Ok, Disney+ is not a person, but the streaming service has had an incredible year. The build-up to its launch was massive, and since then, the company has thrived. For example, within its first day of an international launch, the company signed 10 million subscribers. A lot of hype is around the first live-action "Star Wars" series, "The Mandalorian," and there are more "Star Wars" series in the works, not to mention a number of series that take place in the Marvel Universe.
In 2019, Scareltt Johansson starred in hit movies like "Avengers: Endgame," "Jojo Rabbit," and "Marriage Story." She was also named as the highest paid actress by Forbes. And next year, she finally gets her own Marvel film; "Balck Widow" is due in theaters on May 1, 2020.
