THE BROWN LIST - 2010
 
INTRODUCTION
Close the doors and hide the sheep! I'm back and I've brought the2010 Brown Listwith me. Time tofor the
 Hollywood Temp Diaries
 
) to reveal the results of the Most-Likedand Least-Liked Hollywood executives.First, a brief history of theBrown List. I'm pretty sure one evening in 2009 I was drunk and thought tomyself, “Self, remember that crappy job you took working for that psycho. It's a shame someone didn'twarn you. It would have made your life a lot easier and caused you a lot less agita.” I ruminated onthat thought for a few days (ok, I forgot) when something jogged my memory. Likely beer.With little planning, I created a simple survey and then I waited. It was a hit beyond all expectations as results came pouring in. And then there was the mediacoverage from the
 LA Times
,
CNBC 
and
 Defamer 
among others
.
Heck, NikkiFinke called it “The Definition of Meaningless.” (This coming from the womanwho saw news value in reporting a car-less traffic jam in Culver City.) Then Istarted hearing stories about executives who were proud of/miffed by their inclusion. One source told me one of the Least-Liked cried because of her inclusion. There's the agent who walked around his office bragging about it. Andthere's this email one of the “winners” sent to his/her co-workers:
 For those of you who haven't seen the Brown List today, may I be the first to tell you that I¹m proud and honored to be in such an esteemed group of individuals. I wanted to take a moment to thank [Name Redacted] for clearly organizing this for me. For those who think being on themost hated exec list is a bad thing and disagree with my exuberance, my advice is to be careful of the individuals you allow in your life and how they choose to waste their time.
Clearly I'd struck a nerve, or it was also a slow news day. I could have stopped while I was ahead, butwhat's the fun in doing that. So theBrown Listis back and longer than ever.
METHODOLOGY
Voting is
 American Idol 
-style – vote for whomever you want and as many times as you want. Peopledid just that. Over the course of the last month, I received more than 4,000 nominations for people'sMOST-LIKED and LEAST-LIKED entertainment industry executives – nearly 4x last year's total. Not bad for a site with a $40 annual budget ($10 for the URL, $30 for beer pong team sponsorship.)Please note that executive's titles and companies are based on the most current information from my pirated Studio Systems account. So if a nominee no longer works at that company or if their title isincorrect, blame the Internet. For multiple execs with the same name, I picked the one who seemedmost important. Technically it's your fault as I asked you to list their company.

FINALLY
Enjoy the list for whatever it is. Pass it along to your friends. Pass it along to your enemies. Practiceorigami. But no matter what, realize this is the most important document ever. It'd also be neat if itshames certain executives into cleaning up their act. However, I doubt that will happen. I appreciate every response and hope you enjoy the report. And now, on to the results... 
THE MOST-LIKED ENTERTAINMENT EXECUTIVES
 Let's be honest. People get away with a lot of crazy shit in this town. And the entertainment industry,while perhaps not encouraging it, certainly turns a blind eye to the abusive behavior Hollywood execsexhibit. In any other industry, their actions would result in a quick trip to HR. But entertainment jobsare coveted property. So those on the low end of the totem pole end up taking a lot of guff.Luckily, not everyone gets sucked into this oversized Stanford Prison Experiment. I like to call these people the 10 Most-Liked Hollywood Executives: 
Key Findings
 Nominations for the Most-Liked increased 300% over last year – from 609 to 1813nominations. But total nominations still trail the Least-Liked. Why? It's more fun talkingabout how much you hate your old boss. My guess is you're not even reading this section.
Irony Alert #1:
Brad Fuller
, whose company makes movies where evil beings scare and kill naïve 20-somethings, made the Most-Liked list. That isunless Platinum Dunes versions of T
exas Chainsaw Massacre
,
 Nightmare on Elm Street 
and
 Friday the 13
th
are family comedies.
Irony Alert #2.
Kevin Spacey
, who played supreme Hollywood jerk Buddy Ackerman in
Swimming with Sharks
actually made the Most-Liked list.
A number of A-listers made the list, including
Ron Howard
(
 Frost/Nixon
),
Tom Cruise
(
 JerryMaguire
) and
Tom Hanks
(
Cast Away
). This is a marked improvement over last year's Most-Liked star quality.
