Did Daniel Radcliffe have the best year ever? He sure did – well, according to Entertainment Weekly, anyway.

The magazine on Wednesday selected the popular actor as its Entertainer of the Year for 2011, a title previously given to everyone from Taylor Swift, to Sandra Bullock to Robert Downey Jr. Among his many achievements this year: a starring role in the year’s biggest movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II and a high-profile stint in Broadway’s Tony-winning How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Not bad!

Also on this year’s list: Grammy frontrunner Adele (natch), Hugh Jackman and the hilarious cast of Bridesmaids.
