Is Robert Downey Jr. Really The Entertainer Of The Year?

Illustration for article titled Is Robert Downey Jr. Really The Entertainer Of The Year?

Entertainment Weekly has named Iron Man's Robert Downey Jr. as their choice for the entertainer of 2008 - and while we may have loved Jon Favreau's metal Marvel hero movie, we're unconvinced that Downey Jr.'s necessarily the right man for the title. What about Heath Ledger, the unintentionally-entertaining Michael Bay (C'mon, "Bayhem" is definitely the word of the year), JJ Abrams, or even - considering Clone Wars and The Force Unleashed - George Lucas?

@Dano: Oh please. SW EU is decent, and Force Unleashed was pretty entertaining.

Anyway, Downey Jr. was great as Iron Man, but he was even better in Tropic Thunder.
