(NOTE LANGUAGE) TIME has released its TIME 100 list of influential people, and this year, Oscar-winner Kate Winslet, Ted Lasso Emmy nominee Jason SudeikisBlack Widow‘s Scarlett Johansson, and Minari and The Walking Dead‘s Steven Yuen all made the list. 

Winslet was profiled by Academy Award-nominated actor and director Kenneth Branagh; Seth Meyers praised Sudeikis; Jamie Lee Curtis profiled Johansson; and Tessa Thompson hailed Yuen.

Branagh recalled casting Winslet when she was just 17; he called her “a master of her art.”

Meyers said his fellow SNL cast member Sudeikis is,”charming, a good listener, and a good hang,” and “the kind of friend who puts together the perfect cocktail of the right people, place and activity. And he has done exactly that with [Ted Lasso].”

Curtis said of the Black Widow star, “Whether as an assassin with a conscience, an actor with an emotional center or, having just given birth to her second child, a fierce mother, the message is clear: Don’t f*** with this mama bear.”

Thompson hailed Minari Oscar nominee Yuen’s activism for his fellow Asians, and called him “a deeply fantastic human and a true leading man,” adding, “It’s been very gratifying to see him become one of the Internet’s boyfriends.”
