Homer Simpson Voted Best TV and Film Character

Entertainment Weekly recently  posted their Top 100 Greatest Characters of the Last 20 Years and Homer Simpson sits at number 1. And while that seems like a fair place for Homer (I can’t really think of who I’d replace him with), the rest of the list seems a bit odd and lacking.
Here’s a peek at the top 25 from the list:

25. Woody from the Toy Story series
24. Felicity Porter from Felicity
23. Austin Powers from the Austin Powers series
22. Eric Cartman from South Park
21. Roseanne Conner from Roseanne
20. Ally McBeal from Ally McBeal
19. Morpheus from The Matrix series
18. Sue Sylvester from Glee
17. Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider franchise
16. Bridget Jones from the Bridget Jones series
15. Shrek from the Shrek series
14. Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski from The Big Lebowski
13. Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean series
12. Fox Mulder and Dana Scully from The X-Files
11. Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld
10. SpongeBob SquarePants from SpongeBob SquarePants
9. Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City
8. Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs and its sequels
7. Edward Scissorhands from Edward Scissorhands
6. Rachel Green from Friends
5. The Joker from The Dark Knight
4. Tony Soprano from The Sopranos
3. Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2. Harry Potter from the Harry Potter series
1. Homer Simpson from The Simpsons

Some other “noteworthy” mentions were Hancock at 91, Elmo at 38 (what characteristics does he even have?) and Frasier at 27.

No Jerry Seinfeld? No R2D2? And no William Wallace? Really?!
