Entertainment Weekly Releases 2005 Power List

According to Entertainment Weekly Senior Editor & L.A. Bureau Chief Benjamin Svetkey, who appeared today on Sunday Morning Shootout with Peter Bart and Peter Gruber, to discuss this year’s power list — which is actually a list of the year’s biggest deals, in a departure from the norm — the competition to make the cut is fierce. Bart, who oversees plenty of power lists himself, asks the question…

Bart: “So how much pressure from the fraternity of press agents do you get in maneuvering people on this list?”

Svetkey: “Starting around mid-August, the phone starts ringing, and it pretty much doesn’t stop until the day after the power issue is printed, and then it’s cricket sounds for a while. It surprises no one more than us that people actually care about some of the judgment calls we make, but…you alluded to it earlier. It’s the fear of what’s going to happen after the list is published that motivated a lot of press agents. I don’t think that studio chiefs are yelling at them, “Get us high up on the power issue. I think what happens is the week after it comes out they get yelled at for not being high up on the list.”
