Ana De Armas Got The Number One Spot On IMDb’s Top Stars Of 2020 List

December 1, 2020 / Posted by:

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have no idea what award season will look like next year, but who needs actual trophies to represent 2020’s most notable excellence in entertainment achievement, when there is the most important merit-based award sitting right under our noses? I am of course talking about IMDb’s Top 10 Stars of 2020 List, and the number-one star* (*according to IMDb’s search algorithm) is none other than 2020’s favorite source of pandemic entertainment, Ana de Armas!

The Wrap reports that the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) calculates their Top 10 list based on the page views of more than 200 million monthly visitors to IMDb’s STARmeter chart. And that’s determined by how many times an actor or actress’ profile is clicked on, based on an average of who ranked the highest over a 12-month period. And according to IMDb, the most popular person on the IMDb website was Ben Affleck’s┬ápap stroll partner. Wow, an IMDb Top Star award and the possibility of securing a ring? 2020 sucked for literally everyone but Ana.

Here is the full Top 10 list of stars:

1. Ana de Armas
2. Julia Garner
3. Anya Chalotra
4. Millie Bobby Brown
5. Erin Moriarty
6. Margot Robbie
7. Aidan Gallagher
8. Anya Taylor-Joy
9. Linda Cardellini
10. Henry Cavill

They also have a list of the Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2020, which is calculated in the same way, except with names that have never charted previously before. Like the number one breakout star of The Witcher, Anya Chalotra, or the number three entry, Maria Bakalova (aka the fully-deserves-an-Oscar nomination actress who was in the room when Rudy Giuliani made a further disgrace of himself).

1. Anya Chalotra
2. Aidan Gallagher
3. Maria Bakalova
4. Lauren Lapkus
5. Victoria Pedretti
6. Jurnee Smollett
7. Alba Baptista
8. Golshifteh Farahani
9. Freya Allan
10. Diana Silvers

I am side-eyeing a system which considers Jurnee Smollett, an actress who technically broke out as Michelle Tanner’s best friend in the 90s, a “breakout star.” But that’s a whole other issue for another day. The point that I’m focusing on here is that Ana de Armas is the most popular star of what can be argued is the most popular actor’s online database. And I am not at all surprised that she got the top spot. You can’t get there without millions of people searching your name and clicking on your profile over and over and over again. You know that millions of people have wanted to know who was this woman in all those pap stroll pictures with Ben. And then imagine their shock when they found her IMDb page and realized: “Huh, so taking pictures with Ben Affleck isn’t her actual job after all!
