Paulson and Jenkins are included under Artists with musician Ed Sheeran, actress Leslie Jones and late night host James Corden.

RuPaul made the list— along with the likes of actress Viola Davis, politician and civil rights leader John Lewis and former FOX News anchor Gretchen Carlson— as an Icon.

President Donald Trump, Pope Francis, Senator Elizabeth Warren, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and Russian president Vladimir Putin were among the names to make the list under Leaders.
