by at .  Updated at .

Some made us laugh.

Others made us sing.

Others made us stand up and cheer and a couple made us wonder how you can become so famous by just sharing pictures of yourself in lingerie.

Indeed, it's time to honor the 15 most noteworthy celebrities of 2015. Do you agree with this countdown?

15. Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer
She started the year as a fairly well known comedian with a moderately-rated show on Comedy Central. She ended it with the breakout comedy of the year (Trainwreck), by hosting Saturday Night Live, by hosting the MTV Movie Awards, by befriending Jennifer Lawrence and by sky-rocketing to A-List status.

14. Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck
He received flak when the first photos of him as Batman leaked. And he received even more flak when rumors surfaced that he cheated on Jennifer Garner with the couple's nanny. Hey, we didn't say this lit was reserved for stars who had a good year.

13. Shonda Rhimes

Shonda Rhimes
No producer in TV history has ever been repsonsible for a network's entire night of programming. But ABC is thrilled to have viewers visit Shondaland every Thursday night. Aside from the Kardashians, it's conceivable that no single person causes Twitter to blow up on such a frequent basis as Rhimes does, thanks to Scandal, Grey's Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder.

12. Tom Brady

Tom Brady
He won the Super Bowl (again) in February. He then defeated the NFL after it tried to suspend him over Deflategate. Oh, and he remains married to Gisele Bundchen. A winner in every phase of life.

11. Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian
This is the lowest we've had Kardashian ranked since we started this end-of-the-year countdown. It was a relatively quiet year for her, mostly due to her pregnancy, but Kim still released her very own app and then ended 2015 in miraculous fashion: by giving birth! To a Saint!

10. Hollywood Divorce Attorneys

Hollywood Divorce Attorneys
From Ben and Jen to Blake and Miranda to Gwen and Gavin, famous marriages crumbled like crazy in 2015. We'd have to imagine divorce attorneys are still counting their cash as a result.
