It List


It List
  refers to the tendency in show business to prioritize individuals (stars, writers, would-be celebrities, or up-and-comers) as 'hot' or 'watchable' - highlighting those who have suddenly 'burst onto the scene' and are either notable and bankable; those who had some transient success or 'brush with greatness, but then were demoted from the list are called forgotten, has-beens, shooting stars, or flashes in the pan (after "fifteen minutes of fame" - an Andy Warhol expression); aka "A" List
  Example: "It" originally referred to the sex appeal of 20s flapper star and "It Girl" Clara Bow, popularized in the film It (1927); a modern day "It" List individual is (was) Monica Lewinsky.
