Rogue One actor Riz Ahmed has been made a cover star for Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential figures in the world.
Ahmed leads the way for the pioneers list, with other categories honouring icons, artists and leaders.
Oscar winners Viola Davis and John Legend are the respective cover stars for icons and artists.
Ed Sheeran and James Corden also made the list, with their tributes written by Taylor Swift and Sir Elton John.
‘Quietly pursuing every passion’
Ahmed’s tribute is written by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. The actor and musician contributed a rap to the Hamilton Mixtape and Miranda explains why he is a named as a pioneer.
“Riz Ahmed has been quietly pursuing every passion and opportunity for many years as an actor (The Road to Guantanamo, Four Lions, Nightcrawler), rapper (Post 9/11 Blues, Englistan) and activist (raising funds for Syrian refugee children, advocating representation at the House of Commons).
“To know him is to be inspired, engaged and ready to create alongside him. The year 2016 was when all the seeds he planted bore glorious fruit, and here’s the best part: he’s just getting started.”
Riz tweeted his thanks to Time and Lin-Manuel for his “love” and “support”, which he said he hopes to earn.
Moonlight director Barry Jenkins and Selma director Ava Duvernay have also made the list.
Meryl Streep has written about Viola Davis for the magazine, pointing out her “hard-won, midlife rise to the very top of her profession has not led her to forget the rough trip she took getting there”.
“And that is why she embodies for all women, but especially for women of colour, the high-wire rewards of hard work and a dream, risk and faith.”
Scorsese and Mirren pay tributes
Harry Belafonte has written the tribute to John Legend calling him a “wonderful artist” and “remarkable lyricist” and praised his activism.
“John uses his platform to push for meaningful social change, and the depth of his commitment is to be admired,” he writes.
Other stars to make the list are Demi Lovato, Chance the Rapper, Emma Stone and Margot Robbie, whose tribute is written by Martin Scorsese.
Helen Mirren has written about Ryan Reynolds, Russell Crowe has written a tribute to Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones and Cate Blanchett has written about The People V OJ Simpson actress Sarah Paulson.
Cuba Gooding Sr, the lead singer of 70s soul group Main Ingredient and father of actor Cuba Gooding Jr, has died at the age of 72.
The star was found dead in his car on Thursday in Woodland Hills, California, officials said.
His body was slumped over the wheel of his Jaguar, but there was no suspicion of foul play.
Anonymous sources told the LA Times that drug paraphernalia and alcohol containers were found in the car.
Born in Harlem, New York, the star received his unusual forename from his father, Dudley MacDonald Gooding.
“He told my mother that he would name his first born son Cuba because he once lived in Cuba and had positive feelings about the country,” the musician told the North Dallas Gazette in 2015.
He was encouraged to pursue a singing career by his family.
“My mom and dad were determined that their first-born son would do something in the arts, if I had the talent,” he recalled in a 2014 radio interview.
“Being born in Harlem had its advantages if you wanted to be an entertainer because it was literally… the entertainment capital of the world.
“I lived literally only eight blocks away from the Apollo Theater, and 19 blocks from Carnegie Hall. Although Carnegie Hall required a little bit more sneaking in the back.”
Growing up, he saw the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson play on his doorstep, and resolved to become a singer in his own right.
The other members of Main Ingredient – Tony Sylvester, Luther Simmons Jr and Donald McPherson – were childhood friends, but Gooding Sr initially declined to join the group, having set his sights on a solo career.
But, as the band started to achieve success, he helped out with backing vocals, and stepped up as the lead singer following the death of frontman Donald McPherson in 1971.
In 1972, they recorded an album, Afrodisiac, which featured several songs written or co-written by Stevie Wonder.
But by 1977, Sylvester and Gooding Sr had both left the band. Gooding Sr signed with Motown Records and released two well-received, but commercially disappointing albums.
He later re-joined Main Ingredient and worked with them through the 1980s.
His son Cuba Gooding Jr is an Oscar-winning actor who appeared in films including Boyz ‘N the Hood, A Few Good Men and Jerry Maguire.
The star had three other children with his wife Shirley Gooding: Omar and April, both of whom are also actors, and musician Tommy Gooding, who served as the musical director of his father’s touring band.

Cabbage have denied claims their lead singer assaulted a female audience member at one of their gigs.
A woman who attended the Wednesday night gig – but not the person said to have been assaulted – claimed on social media to have seen the incident.
The band strongly deny the accusations made against singer Lee Broadbent.
Nicole Rushworth said Cabbage’s performance was poor and claims he was “so off his head” that he was unable to remove his own guitar strap.
“Lead singer Lee Broadbent sexually assaulted a young woman at the show,” she wrote on Twitter, adding that the young woman had been attending the show with her dad.
“He proceeded to put his hand down his trousers, fondle himself, then rub his hand over the girl, ragging on her hair,” she claims.

Nicole claims the dad made a complaint to security at the venue who then brought Lee Broadbent to apologise, but she claims he “got aggressive” with the girl’s dad.
Cabbage were supporting Kasabian when the incident was said to have occurred.
The venue, O2 Kentish Town Forum, would not comment when Newsbeat contacted them.
Cabbage’s representative have yet to respond to a request from the BBC for a statement but the band posted a response to the claims saying they “deny the accusations put against Lee this morning,” but which confirmed a complaint had been made.
“His hands were never down his trousers although he did go down to the barrier to interact with the crowd, as he does at all Cabbage shows,” it reads.
They claim he “took it on himself” to make an apology to the person who made a complaint and shook hands with both the father and daughter in question.
The band says the complaints are “completely unfounded” and that they are shocked and deeply troubled by the “fabrications”.
They say ” We would never engage in any of the actions that this Tweet accuses us of”
Several followers of the band have responded to Cabbage’s tweet to say that they also witnessed the incident, while other fans welcomed hearing the band’s response to the accusations.
A spokesperson for SafeGigs4Women says the charity has offered assistance to both the band and fans involved in the alleged incident.
“We have now seen Cabbage’s statement, and we’d be happy to discuss the matter and issues of consent in the context of the artist/fan relationship during a gig with them if they are willing,” said the charity in a statement given to Newsbeat.
“We’d also be happy to provide referrals to the girl and her father if they feel the need for them, as we do everyone who comes to us.”
Scotland Yard tells Newsbeat that there was no report of this alleged incident to the police.
