Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been named Entertainer of the Year by Entertainment Weekly

"Having captivated moviegoers around the world with the last installment of the Harry Potter series, Daniel Radcliffe earned the number one spot on our list of the most talented and original performers who entertained us this year," the magazine said. Radcliffe plays a young lawyer in the upcoming thriller The Woman in Black.

This year, EW also asks past Entertainer of the Year winners to offer up their own tributes to Hollywood favorites. Sandra Bullock (EW's 2009 choice), extols the bladder-busting virtues of South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. "I went and saw The Book of Mormon on Broadway, and was so offended I peed my pants twice," the Oscar winner reveals. "Maybe three times. I lost count I was so offended."

You can see all of EW's top choices in the magazine's 2011 Entertainers of the Year issue, on newsstands this Friday.
