Top 10 Notable SW people of 2010

 UPDATE: I'm so sorry! I got this wrong. The Jedi Path reached #15 on Amazon.com, not #40.
Before it gets too late to do this.....
 
What is the name for SW actors/authors/producers? Celebrities? Not in order-these are just some SW "people" who deserve a shout out this year.


1.) Harrison Ford
Congratulations on his marriage to Calista Flockhart! It took place June 15th, in Santa Fe.
2.) Daniel Wallace
For writing one of the most wildly anticipated SW books of all time, The Jedi Path! It reached #15 on Amazon.
3.) Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff
Her much-anticipated novel, formerly-Holostar(I can't remember what the new name is. Shadow Play, Shadow Games, something about shadows?) is due Sept. 27th. She also wrote my favorite filk ever, Midichlorian Rhapsody, with her husband.
4.) Ashley Eckstein
By creating the clothing line Her Universe, she demonstrated that she loves working on The Clone Wars, Star Wars in general, and it's not just another job for her. 
5.) Natalie Portman
Back to the movie scene with Black Swan, engaged to choreographer Benjamen Millieped.
6.)Ben Burrt
For writing the fantastic book The Sounds of Star Wars. Sounds regaled us with lore, behind the scenes stories, pictures, and some pretty sweet sound effects.
7.) Christie Golden
Settling down in the SW author scene with her second SW novel, Allies. Her third and final FOTJ book, Ascension, is due August 16th. Lets hope we see more of her in Star Wars.
8.) Dave Filoni
For the first part of another wonderful season of The Clone Wars. Also, everyone who worked on this.
9.)Sean Williams
For Fatal Alliance, officially the oldest(chronologically) SW novel! Yay!
10.)Catherine Taber
Padme's been getting a lot more air time in TCW lately. Catherine's voice is just what I imagined her to be.

Any other suggestions?
