Which buffoons got left off our new list of the best pop-culture idiots?

Posted on


No, no, no…not you, PopWatchers. I’m referring to the subjects of EW.com’s brand new (and must-read) photo gallery, “Our 20 Favorite Movie/TV Idiots,” which includes my personal favorite, the utterly ridiculous (and perpetually hilarious) Amanda Tanen (Becki Newton) of Ugly Betty. Watch a classic clip (embedded below) of Amanda performing Kelis’ “Milkshake” to entertain the audience during an (unexpected) break at the Wilhelmina Slater-Bradford Meade wedding, and after the jump, an Amanda highlight reel (featuring her extra-special pronunciation of “hola”).

Anyhow, do read our gallery, and when you’re done, head to the comments section and tell us which idiots we left off our list. Without calling us idiots, of course.
