Awkwafina, Renee Zellweger, Lizzo & More Named 'Entertainment Weekly' Entertainers of the Year 2019!

Awkwafina, Renee Zellweger, Lizzo & More Named 'Entertainment Weekly' Entertainers of the Year 2019!

Lizzo, Awkwafina and Renee Zellweger are on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s January 2020 issue, out on newsstands on December 20.

The stars were all named Entertainers of the Year by EW, along with Regina King, Taika Waititi and the cast of HBO’s Succession.

Here’s what they had to say…

Lizzo, on her “overnight success”: “Everybody says that and I’m like, ‘It took 10 years to get to this point!’ Mainstream success happens very fast, and that’s why people think it’s overnight… but it’s cool, y’all are going to discover my discography, dig deeper. You’re gonna see some pictures of me back when I was wearing $20 wigs.”

Awkwafina, on her personas: “People can say that Nora’s the serious one and Awkwafina’s this crazy comedy one, but for me, the older I get and the more I [do], they become one. I can’t leave Awkwafina. Awkwafina is a part of me. I didn’t create Nora; I created Awkwafina. So it makes it powerful when I see her name somewhere.”

Renee Zellweger, on the biggest misconception about her: ““h, gosh. I see things sometimes because [my team will] send it along because they want to know if I would like to correct them. Most of the time, I don’t see the point because I feel like it’s not my business to correct how people think. Most of the time I don’t know who that person is — the ‘Renée Zellweger’ in quotations. That’s fine with me.”
