It's that time of the year again! Everyone you know is brimming with enthusiasm, committed to their New Year's resolutions. They've been going to the gym daily, eating a lot of quinoa, and putting in extra hours at work.

Then that all comes to a screeching halt because something devastating has happened: the Forbes' "30 Under 30" list.

Trust us, there is no quicker way to make an entire population of over–twenty-somethings feel insignificant than to present them with an encyclopedia of 22–year–olds who have already accomplished more than many will in their entire life.

Suddenly, that nerdy guy you went to high school with is a young finance celebrity (at least for the week) and you're still just … well … you. The only thing that can make you feel better? Realizing that many names on the list are actual celebrities. They totally have an advantage.

This year, 35 mainstream (or near–mainstream) Hollywood celebrities were honored without ever having to walk a red carpet.

Notably, 10–year–old Quvenzhané Wallis made the list for her inspirational performances in "Beasts of the Southern Wild" and "Annie." She may be the youngest celebrity on the list by at least seven years (hey, Lorde!), but she isn't the only one to come as a surprise. Jemima Kirke holds a 16th spot, not in the "Hollywood and Entertainment" category because of her starring role as Jessa in HBO's "Girls," but in the "Art" category for her unique portraiture.
