100 Most Valuable Movie Stars: George is #...

Post by Missa on Sun Jul 29 2012, 20:39

The entertainment website Vulture.com has created a ranking of celebrities in various categories, taking into consideration criteria such as domestic and international box office, Oscars, likeability, critics' scores, magazine covers, and tabloid value. Here's where George falls on each list:

Studio Favorites: #18
Most Respected: #3 (behind only Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep)
International Stars: #26
Tabloid Targets: #16 (Brad, Angie and Jen are three of the top four - no surprise)
Vulture Rankings: #10

Here's their write-up for George:

George Clooney
THE KING OF HOLLYWOOD
A media darling who’s too rich to care about blockbusters.

George Clooney is a movie star. And not just any movie star: He’s one of the biggest the town has to offer, despite a dearth of blockbuster breakouts on his resume. Still, that doesn’t seem to bother him too much, nor does it bother studios. He’s the sort of actor who recalls Hollywood’s golden age, and he prefers to be picky with material, mixing up his resume with unique choices like Syriana and Coen Brothers films rather than always reaching for the sure thing. And though he had a run of weaker films a few years back (we’re looking at you, Leatherheads and The Men Who Stare at Goats), he’s the rare star who can power dramas like The Descendants, Up in the Air, and The Ides of March to success at home and abroad.

Yes, his biggest hits remain the Ocean’s franchise and a turn as Bruce Wayne in Batman & Robin that he’d rather disavow, but Clooney has got a lot of Academy cred as an actor-producer-director: seven Oscar nominations and one win for his supporting work in Syriana. He somehow manages to keep himself unsullied by the tabloids despite his swinging-door relationship status and instead draws press attention where he wants it, spotlighting top-tier causes like Haiti and the Sudan. Up next, he teams with Sandra Bullock for Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, and he’ll also produce the film adaptation of the Tony- and Pulitzer-winning August: Osage County, starring Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.


And George's numbers they based their ranking on (all numbers from 2007 to present):
Domestic Box Office $49,000,000
Overseas Box Office $44,000,000
Studio Value (1-10) 7
Likeability 69%
Oscars 1 win, 6 noms
Critics' Score (1-100) 63
Magazine Covers 13
Tabloid Value (1-10) 7

There's also a feature on the left hand side of the page that allows you to make your own list by adjusting the weight of each factor. One thing I found interesting: If the only measure is likeability, George ranks 30th, after people like Jason Statham, Mila Kunis, and Mark Wahlberg. That seems low for a guy everyone is always praising as "The Mayor of Hollywood".

i think the list made about the money films bring but the way they wrote about GC was describing him as unique star not a blockbuster as the list seems based on .

Aly,

Each list is created by giving a different amount of weight to the varying factors. You can even play with them yourself to see how George moves up and down the list. If you take off everything but Tabloid Value, he comes up 20th (which I thought was high, actually). If you only look at box office, he's way down. Looking just at Oscars and Critic ratings, he moves up close to the top again. It's kind of fun to play with.
