Hollywood’s Least Liked Exec List: A Who’s Who Of Hollywood No Names

Hollywood Post Alliance Honors Avid With the Charles S. Swartz Award

He went outside and saw a pony-tailed woman and a man in dark clothing run away from the scene. The witness then saw Rivera injured in the alley and dialed 911. Photos: Faces of meth, before and after Rivera was shot in the temple, arms, spinal column and the chest, according to an arrest warrant. Goff was charged with premeditated murder and was arrested Tuesday. At a first-appearance court hearing Wednesday, she was ordered held without bond in jail. According to documents read in court by Broward County Judge John “Jay” Hurley, the slaying was orchestrated by Goff. The day after the killing, Goff told a detective that she had spent the day with Rivera at ArtsPark at Young Circle, but lost sight of him at North Dixie Highway and Taft Street, police said. She told the detective that she continued walking home alone at that point, police said. Goff then provided a different account, saying she was with Rivera when he was shot. She said Rivera became angered when he saw Goff greet another man known as “Dread” with a hug, the warrant said. Goff said “Dread” then shot Rivera and she fled the scene and later went to the park to get drunk, because she was upset, authorities said.

It used to strike fear (or maybe pride) into upper-level executive hearts. Now just reads like a list of nobodies. This year’s top hated executive was Andrea Simon, a manager with no famous clientele who once produced a Lifetime TV movie in 2007. The next two slots went to a creative ad exec and a part-time consultant at Fox. The only high profile executive on the entire list was seventh-ranked Paul Lee, president of ABC’s Entertainment Group. The remainder of the top 10 were managers, agents and producers from boutique firms, as well as a CAA human resources exec. While Simon did garner 830 votes, it’s unclear how much (or well, how little) her fledgling business will really be affected by this. In its inaugural 2009 tally , the Brown List counted Harvey Weinstein, Scott Rudin, NBC Pres Ben Silverman, and WME’s Ari Emanuel among its list of high ranking execs. Yet from 2010 onwards, the list has remained a collection of small nameswhich isn’t necessarily a bad thing. This is Hollywood, even low-ranking executives enter this town with an overinflated sense of entitlement. What is interesting is the disparity between the highest ranked votes and everyone else.
