It’s time for your annual review! Join us as we rank the best manager characters in film and TV. At one point or another, we’ve probably all had bosses we couldn't stand. Some were overbearing, while others micromanaged everything. Either way, they all got on our last nerves.

Michael Scott from The Office somehow managed to be the greatest and worst fictional manager of all time. He just wanted to be everyone's best friend, but sometimes that buddy-buddy mentality came at a cost. And then there’s Mr. Krabs, from Spongebob Squarepants, who represents the money-hungry boss who is willing to step over his employees to make a quick buck. Which fictional manager would you rather work for?

Vote up your favorite film and TV boss characters. You are used to getting performance reviews from your boss, and now is your time to turn the tables and grade a bunch of managers at once.
