“Forbes” released its annual “30 Under 30” list, featuring, quote, “do-gooders, bright stars, and prodigies, who are reinventing the world.”  There are 600 people on it, because there’s a Top 30 in 20 different categories, including Hollywood, Music, Sports, Finance, Law, and Science.

The only real rule, other than them being younger than 30, is that there couldn’t be any repeats from a previous year’s list, so there are a few seemingly glaring omissions, like
Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift, and Ed Sheeran.
Here are some of the celebrities who made this year’s list, along with their age:

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who are both 23.

“Empire” star Bryshere Gray, who plays Hakeem Lyon and also raps under the name Yazz, 22.

Emilia Clarke from “Game of Thrones”, 29 

Dakota Johnson from “Fifty Shades of Gray”, 26
