<![CDATA[The Best Female Characters in Literature]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-female-characters-in-literature
List of the best female characters in literature. From the evil to the undeniably perfect, these are the greatest female characters from literature of all genres. This list includes the best female characters of all ages, from the youthful Matilda (“Matilda”) to the ever-so-adult Evelyn Couch (“Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe”).

 Why do female literary characters stay with readers long after they’ve finished reading the novels these characters are featured in? Often, it’s due to the intimacy with which readers have come to know a character. Jane Eyre (and all of her desires and feelings), for example, becomes so real to readers that they feel as if they’ve met and understood this amazing female character.

 Other times, readers love female characters in literature because of the audacity of their actions. Scarlett O’Hara (“Gone with the Wind”) was exceedingly bold for a woman of her time, while Madame Defarge (“A Tale of Two Cities”) is an exemplar of tireless villainy. Some of the most popular female literary characters manage to embody both wholesome and defiant, becoming reflections of the complex nature of women.

 For the wide range of personality traits we find in these great female characters (and the audacious actions they’ve performed), these women have earned their titles as the best female characters in literature. They may be young or old, charming or black-hearted, but they are all memorable. Whether you love them or love to hate them, all the famous fictional heroines are here in this list of the best female characters in literary history. 

The Best Female Characters in Literature,

Arya Stark

Elizabeth Bennet

Hermione Granger

Hester Prynne

Jo March

Lady Macbeth

Natasha Rostova

Jane Eyre

Anna Karenina

Scout Finch

<![CDATA[TV Shows That Should Be Canceled]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/shows-that-should-be-canceled
The worst TV shows on the air, that deserve cancellation after this current season. Though reality TV is often singled out as the trashiest current options on television, numerous shows from a variety of genres have made the cut on this collection of failed entertainment products. Competition to get on the television remains intense, but has lessened over the years, as extensive cable packages and streaming options have exploded the number of new TV series being produced. Of course, this opened up opportunities for stations like AMC and FX to experiment with exciting new programming, but also allows for innumerable bad knock-offs, stupid reality competitions and painfully unfunny comedies.

Basic cable channels, particularly MTV and Bravo, seem to be singled out on the list a bit, with entries like "Jersey Shore," "The Pauly D Project," "16 and Pregnant" and the "Real Housewives..." series taking up a number of the top spots. The list also includes a number of once-beloved shows that are seen as "past their prime" or overdue for cancellation, such as NBC's venerable mockumentary-sitcom "The Office," the Charlie Sheen-less "Two and a Half Men" and Showtime's pot dramedy "Weeds."
TV Shows That Should Be Canceled,

American Idol

The Bachelor

The Real Housewives of Orange County

Keeping Up with the Kardashians

The Real Housewives of New York City

The Real Housewives of New Jersey

16 and Pregnant

The Real Housewives of Atlanta

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

<![CDATA[The Best Star Wars Movies, Ranked by Fans]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-star-wars-movie
A list of the best Star Wars movies, ranked by fans and critics. Since the premiere of the original Star Wars (A New Hope) in 1977, the saga of the Jedi, the Sith, and the Skywalker family have been favorites of movie-goers. Along with the original film, its sequels The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and The Return of the Jedi (1983) are considered some of the best movies of all time. The stories follow Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, and their friends and droids as they battle the evil Sith lords Darth Vader and Darth Sidious.

Sixteen years after the release of the initial films, a trilogy of Star Wars prequels were created, beginning with Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 1999. Attack of the Clones was released in 2002, and Revenge of the Sith (2005) was the final film. This set of films followed Anakin Skywalker, Luke's father, from his youth to his becoming Darth Vader as well as his relationships with wife Padme Amidala, mentor Obi Wan Kenobi, and eventually Emperor Palpatine.

In 2012, it was announced that Disney bought Lucasfilms and was planning three new Star Wars films, sequels that follow the end of The Return of the Jedi. In light of this, we look back at the "original" films to let the crowd decide, once and for all, which are the best films int he Star Wars franchise. Vote for your favorites to move them to the top of the list. May the Force be with you.

<![CDATA[Which Celebs Do You Think Have the Lowest IQ?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/which-celebs-do-you-think-have-the-lowest-iq-/celeb-stalker
Which celebs do you think have the lowest IQ scores? That's a good question! While few of these celebrities will ever take an IQ test and release their results, judging by the dumb things that come out of their mouths from time to time (or ALL the time), we can guess what those results would say. Have a favorite celebrity who you think is just a hair smarter than a box of rocks? Add them or vote for them right here!

It's no secret that beautiful blondes have a reputation for being a little lacking in the smarts department. Between Paris Hilton asking if they sell "wall stuff" at Wal-Mart to Jessica Simpson's confusion over chicken and fish, it's hard for the stars on this list not to play right into that stereotype.

But it's not just the ladies who make us feel really, really, really ridiculously smart in comparison. Justin Bieber, Charlie Sheen, Kanye West, and Ryan Lochte have all done their fair amount of things that make us scratch our heads in confusion.

If you need a little self-esteem boost, a moment listening to these famous people, who may or may not have some of the lowest IQs ever recorded, will make you feel like a freakin' rocket scientist. Remember folks, think about the IQ of the average person, then remember half are dumber than that.
Which Celebs Do You Think Have the Lowest IQ?,

Lil Wayne

Kanye West

Kim Kardashian

Kourtney Kardashian

Paris Hilton

Khloé Kardashian

Kris Jenner

Nicki Minaj

Justin Bieber

Nicole Polizzi

<![CDATA[The Greatest Actors Who Have Never Won an Oscar (for Acting)]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/greatest-actors-who-have-never-won-an-oscar
There are many actors who haven't won an Oscar. For 95 percent of the acting population, there is probably a good reason they haven't taken home one of film's most prestigious honors. Only two actors per year can win either the Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor Oscars, leaving eight other nominees with nothing. And all of the other actors in the biz out in the cold.

But does the Academy always get it right? There are plenty of actors who haven't won an Oscar despite the fact that they’ve turned in amazing performances. Whether it’s due to stellar competition, bad luck, or an out-and-out snub, some artists have never gotten the recognition they deserve.

Johnny Depp, Edward Norton, and Brad Pitt are all big draws at the box office who haven't received the same respect of the Academy that they have from audiences. While they've all been nominated for Oscars, they've never taken home the big prize.

There are a surprising number of big name actors who haven't won an Oscar. It's up to you to determine which of these men is the greatest.
The Greatest Actors Who Have Never Won an Oscar (for Acting),

Alan Rickman

Brad Pitt

Edward Norton

Gary Oldman

Harrison Ford

Ian McKellen

Johnny Depp

Liam Neeson

Ralph Fiennes

Robert Downey Jr.

<![CDATA[The Best Superhero Movies Ever Made]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-superhero-movies-ever-made
Superhero movies may seem like a current trend, but the truth is, superheroes on film have been around since the beginning of celluloid. Most of the top superhero movies come from the comic giants like DC Movies or Marvel Films. Heroes like Batman, Spiderman, Superman, and Wolverine are all favorite superhero movie characters who have made it from the pages of comics to the big screen time and time again.

Superheroes began in classic American comic books in the 1930s, though their predecessors date back to earlier crime fighters and even mythological superhuman characters, like Zeus and Thor. In the Golden Age of comic books, superheroes frequented the pages of DC Comics, including Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern. In the 1960s, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and Iron Man showed up in the pages of Marvel Comics. More modern superhero stories like Kick-Ass and Watchmen still delight audiences.

Superhero movie serials once played before big features at movie houses. Today, Hollywood turns out giant summer blockbusters that routinely break records and bring in big business for studio execs, costumers, and special effects crews alike. Everyone has a favorite superhero film, and you can add yours to the rankings by voting up an existing item or creating your own full re-rank of your favorite super hero movies.
