For its February 2023 issue, Empire asked its readers to vote for the 50 greatest actors of all time. The votes were tallied into a list that the publication recently shared on its website.

Some of the actors on the list are Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joaquin Phoenix, Nicole Kidman, Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, and Kate Winslet.

Since the list only includes 50 actors, many talented stars were excluded from the ranking. But some of those exclusions are shocking.

It can be argued that Kevin Costner is one of the most popular actors right now thanks to his high-profile role as John Dutton on Yellowstone. But he has a career that stretches back much further, including roles in iconic projects such as Field of Dreams, Dances with Wolves, and The Bodyguard.

Despite this, Costner shockingly doesn’t appear on Empire‘s 50 Greatest Actors of All Time list.

It’s equally surprising that Harrison Ford is not featured on the list either. The 80-year-old actor is the star of the new Yellowstone prequel series 1923. 1923 just broke the record for the most-viewed premiere for Paramount+ after drawing in 7.4 million viewers.

Ford’s exclusion from the 50 Greatest Actors of All Time list is quite the head-scratcher. He’s known for playing iconic characters such as Indiana Jones, Han Solo, and many others.

Other stars who were surprisingly snubbed from the list include Robin Williams, Clint Eastwood, Sam Elliott, Jodie Foster, Audrey Hepburn, and Sally Field. Ford’s 1923 co-star, Helen Mirren, was also excluded from the list.
