The latest nominees in the FanSided Fandom 250 include Oscar-nominated actors, alt-rock gods and the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’.

All month long, FanSided is trying to find the most passionate and loyal fanbase in existence. This consists of narrowing the millions of fandoms in the world down to a prestigious 250. Throughout November, the nominees for the Fandom 250 will be announced 10 at a time, with the final list coming out on December 6th.

Today, 10 more fandoms have been added to the list, all of which have homes int eh world of entertainment. Cinema may have gone through a rough patch in the early 2010s, but actors like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ryan Gosling have cultivated fan bases loyal enough to keep things going. They both bring as much quality to the table as they do box office bravado, and their fans are among themes loyal in all of entertainment. Ditto for the three Chris’ of the group: Evans, Hemsworth and Pratt. Fans latched on to all three of these box office superstars back when they were still taking small roles in teen rom-coms or on television. Those fans are as loyal today as they’ve ever been and fill theater seats time and time again.

Of course, there might not be a bigger movie star in the world than Dwayne Johnson. He tapped into the WWE fan base and those fans supported him to the point where he’s the biggest box office star in Hollywood.
