Oscar winner Chloe Zhao and U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris have been saluted among the 100 Most Impactful Asians of 2021.

The non-profit organization Gold House unveiled their annual A100 list of the top Asians, Asian-Americans, and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) who have been working to increase representation of their race and heritage in the public eye.

Honorees include K-pop stars Blackpink, H.E.R., Olivia Rodrigo, Gemma Chan, Kelly Marie Tran, and Simu Liu.

"Our leaders can no longer just be great - they must be good," said Bing Chen, president and co-founder of Gold House. "They can't just represent us in celebration - they must also elevate us when we're in pain.

"That's why this year's Gold House A100 List spotlights leaders who were excellent in achievement and eminent in activism. This is, in so many ways, the fight for our lives - and we need fighters who see that."

Those selected for the A100 were picked by a panel of judges, including George Takei, Daniel Dae Kim, Michelle Yeoh, Lea Salonga, Bob Iger, and Michael B. Jordan.

Also making the A100 list for 2021 are: rappers Anderson .Paak and Saweetie, actress Auli'i Cravalho, comedian Ronny Chieng, writer/director Lee Isaac Chung, tennis champ Naomi Osaka, TV personality Padma Lakshmi, and YouTube influencer Patrick Starr.

2015 Miss Universe Pageant - Show

This is the celebration we missed when the Miss Universe 2015 Pageant ended abruptly due to a colossal mixup between host Steve Harvey, the teleprompter guy, and the cue card.

The cue card that Steve Harvey should have read from correctly named Miss Philippines Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach the winner of the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant. But Steve read from the teleprompter which named Miss Colombia the winner. The correct winner was eventually crowned but the show ended abruptly because it ran over its allotted time slot due to the mixup. The 2015 Miss Universe Pageant was taped live at The Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Sunday, December 20, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
