<![CDATA[Game of Thrones Characters Who Should Die]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/game-of-thrones-characters-who-should-die/ranker-of-thrones
*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS* This is a list of Game of Thrones characters you want to see die or at least fall off the face of the Earth, and it does NOT include people who have already died. So if you're not caught up on the most recent episodes of Game of Thrones, you may want to catch up before you vote for GoT characters you wish would die.

Game of Thrones does a wonderful job at making you feel strongly about characters in both a positive and negative way, and this list of GoT characters you're totally over is your chance to vote and say "Arrow. In the eye. Stat." Whether you really like a character and want to see them put out of their misery (*cough*Theon Greyjoy*cough*) or want to throw a vote at a Game of Thrones character whose actions/attitudes are just deplorable (pretty much any member of the Lannister family), this is your chance to cast a vote for the worst characters on Game of Thrones.

If you know of a GoT character who deserves to be on the list of Game of Thrones characters who should die and isn't, make sure to add them to the worst GoT characters list so other fans can vote for their speedy - and perhaps excruciating - death (or at least their mysterious disappearance after which they are never seen again).  
Game of Thrones Characters Who Should Die,

Cersei Baratheon

Joffrey Baratheon

Petyr Baelish

Theon Greyjoy

Alliser Thorne

Roose Bolton

Lancel Lannister

Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane / Robert Strong


Ramsay Snow

<![CDATA[The Best Game of Thrones Characters]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-game-of-thrones-characters
List of the best, most interesting characters from HBO's "Game of Thrones" series. Though the complicated study of power dynamics in the fantasy kingdom of Westeros may not have too many identifiable or even sympathetic lead characters, it has nonetheless produced a wide variety of compelling, entertaining and outsized personalities, from the brutal boy king Joffrey Baratheon to his diminutive but ingenious cousin Tyrion Lannister to their rivals, the Stark family of Winterfell and the "Mother of Dragons," Daenerys Targaryen. But which characters are the true fan favorites, providing the most memorable moments and unexpected plot twists?

HBO's "Game of Thrones" show is based on the "Song of Ice and Fire" cycle of novels by fantasy author George R. R. Martin. That series - like the TV version - takes place in a medieval fantasy world, on two continents known as Westeros and Essos. The first novel in the series, also called "Game of Thrones," was published in August of 1996. This book introduced the basic narrative which would unfold over the course of the rest of the series, concerning which family would claim the Iron Throne of Westeros following the death of King Robert Baratheon. (Prior to Robert's rule, the Targaryen family had controlled the throne - and united the Kingdom of Westeros - for several generations.)

Martin has said that the series was partially based on the real "War of the Roses" that engulfed England in civil war in the 15th Century. Those conflicts concerned a rivalry between the houses of Lancaster and York, whose names clearly provided inspiration for the rival families of Lannister and Stark in the "Game of Thrones" universe.

<![CDATA[The Most Beautiful Women of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/most-beautiful-women-of-all-time
List of the most beautiful women of all time: ranked not on talent or accomplishments, but on looks alone. This is a test to see if the so-called "wisdom of the crowd" will actually be able to determine who the most beautiful woman of all time is. If you'd like to rank these women on more than their beauty, consult The Best Actresses in Film History list. This list does not only include the prettiest current actresses, but the most beautiful women in history.

So, who is the most beautiful woman ever? Of course, that woman may very well be a total unknown, but since it's impossible to list every woman who's ever existed, and one is less likely to rank people they don't know, this list will obviously be restricted to people who've achieved a fair level of celebrity. A "fair level of celebrity" is defined by being famous enough to have a profile page on Wikipedia or IMDB. Historical figures are accepted IF pictures of them are generally accepted as accurate. Add your own suggestions and this should hopefully be an ever expanding list.

These ladies are the top of the list in the conversation for sexiest woman ever and prettiest woman in the world. These are the hottest women of all time, definitely in the top 10 most beautiful women ever.
The Most Beautiful Women of All Time,

Audrey Hepburn

Brigitte Bardot

Catherine Deneuve

Charlize Theron

Evangeline Lilly

Grace Kelly

Monica Bellucci

Sophie Marceau

Ursula Andress

Sophia Loren

<![CDATA[The Funniest Stand Up Comedians of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-funniest-stand-up-comedians-in-entertainment
A ranked list of the best stand up comedians in the history of the art form. First and foremost, all of the people on this list are funny comedians. But beyond that, this is a diverse list of people with different styles who approach different types of subject matter. These are the cream of the crop: they are the top comedians in the game, and many thousands of people agree. Many of the popular comedians listed below worked their way up through the stand up circuit and eventually landed a show on Comedy Central, while others started their own web series and put their best stand up out into the world that way. The funniest comedians can come from any type of background, obviously there are insanely talented black, Asian, Latino and white comedians (and everything in between.)

Being a good stand-up comic is tough, and whether they're an observationist, an orator, an absurdist, blue collar, or alternative, all of the funny comedians on this list are unique, hardworking, and hilarious. Many of the best comedians of all time got their start as stand-up comedians and then progressed to star in their own films of TV series. It takes a certain skill set and ability to connect with people to excel at stand-up comedy, and we feel that these are the ones that shine.

This list is made of the 100 greatest stand-up comedians and then some. The top ten comedians are always changing. Feel free to add your votes to this Crowd-Ranked list of the greatest stand ups of all time, or make your own contributing list and give your voice more weight in the calculations.

<![CDATA[The Most Badass Current TV Characters]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/badass-current-tv-characters/ranker-tv
The most badass current TV characters include men and women who, though they do not exist in reality, are fearless in today's television landscape. The most badass characters on television are the ones who threaten the status quo, stand up for what they believe in, and get the job done. That includes fictional presidents like Selina Meyer (from VEEP on HBO) and Frank Underwood (from House of Cards on Netflix). It also includes old school divas who kick butt, like Rayna James on Nashville, as well as effective criminals, like James Spader's Raymond Reddington on The Blacklist

Some of the most badass characters currently on TV are heroes like Matt Murdoch from Daredevil and Melinda May from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But badass television characters can be everyday people too. Take, for instance, Ilana Wexler on Broad City. She lives life her own way (even if it's not always legal). Maybe you'll find some inspiration to live life however you see fit from badass TV characters like Empire's Cookie Lyon who just don't give a damn.

From Olivia Pope to Lucious Lyon, who do you think is the most badass character who can currently be seen on TV?

The Most Badass Current TV Characters,

Arya Stark

Dean Winchester

Sam Winchester



Daryl Dixon

Carol Peletier

Rick Grimes

Melinda May
