Dude of the Year: He’s bug-eyed, missing two fingers and has no chin, but Bart J. Simpson has what it takes to capture Entertainment Weekly’s entertainer-of-the-year title. The folk anti-hero who was a virtual unknown just one year ago became an underachiever for the ages in 1990. He’s got his own TV show, a record album and a “Do the Bartman” rock video. Entertainment Weekly said Bart also deserves credit for not catching typical Hollywood afflictions: He didn’t punch out any paparazzi, make a trip to the Betty Ford Center or sing the National Anthem. Runners-up for the award included Julia Roberts, Madonna, Arnold Schwarzenegger, M.C. Hammer and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
