Abrams One of the Entertainers of the Decade

Photo by Art StreiberAs part of a look back of the last decade in entertainment, Entertainment Weekly chose what they called "Entertainers of the Decade". JJ Abrams was one of fifteen chosen for the list due to his prolific decade of work including Alias, Lost, Mission Impossible III, Cloverfield, Star Trek, Fringe and more. Other members of EW's list include Johnny Depp, Beyonce, JK Rowling, Peter Jackson, John Lasseter, Will Smith, Jon Stewart and more. The complete list can be found here.
Putting his stamp on the century's first decade with defining entertainment like Alias, Lost, and Star Trek, Abrams, 43, has become a Hollywood power player with ''next Spielberg'' buzz thanks to an uncanny knack for blending capture-the-imagination ideas, emotionally riveting drama, and relatable, memorable characters. Not bad for someone who admits, as he approached the close of the '90s, ''I felt I had lost my way as a writer.'' Ten years later? ''I feel happily lost right now.'' —Jeff Jensen
