People Highlights Music and Hollywood Newcomers

People magazine, much like a semi-drunk uncle at a family reunion, wants the younger generations to know that it’s hip. That’s the reason for its new section, titled “Ones to Watch.” The New York Post reports that the feature is designed to highlight newcomers to the music and Hollywood worlds.

The inaugural Ones to Watch list includes some names that aren’t that fresh — like Andy Samberg and Anna Farris — and some that are, like Kacey Musgraves and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Larry Hackett, People’s managing editor, told the Post that Ones to Watch is ”a new franchise we’re launching, a way to celebrate new Hollywood.” Feel the excitement!
