We all really should put the courtesy title “Sir” in front of acting legend Sidney Poitier’s name.
He’s earned it.


Since that might read like breathless hyperbole, it should be pointed out that he has been styled Sir Sidney Poitier since 1974, when he was made a Knight Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II.

Funny, I found the design unbearable and left after about 10 seconds despite wanting to see the list. Maybe it's a desktop vs. mobile thing? I am on mobile.

This list, like most (all?) of the lists before it, is stupid. But I, once again, clicked. I'm an idiot.
