“Homey, you’re the greatest!”

homer simpson 3 Homey, youre the greatest!If I asked you to name your favorite TV or movie character from the last 20 years, could you?  I’m not sure I could.  I can tell you who it would NOT be: Spongebob Squarepants, Steve Urkel or Pat from SNLEntertainment Weekly asked readers for their choice.  And, they picked Homer Simpson!  OK, I’ll buy that.  “He had me at donuts.”

Harry Potter was described as a “global icon,” and was #2 in the pool.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer came in at third, followed by Tony Soprano from “The Sopranos” at #4.  The Joker from Batman was #5, but it wasn’t who you might think!  I would have guessed Jack Nicholson‘s portrayal.  BUT, that was in 1989 – and this only encompasses the last 20 years.  It was Heath Ledger who rounded out the top 5 with his role in “The Dark Knight.”

Here’s the rest of the top 10:

6.) Rachel Greene from “Friends” (Jennifer Aniston)
7.) Edward Scissorhands (Johnny Depp)
8.) Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins)
9.) Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex and the City” (Sarah Jessica Parker)
10.) Spongebob Squarepants

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  Who voted in Bob??  I may be way off here, but I think he’s evil – and is secretly plotting to take over the world!  I’m just sayin…you heard it here first.
