Amy Schumer has definitely had a fulfilling year. She's ending it with quite an honor, too. When Barbara Walters announced her list of 2015's Most Fascinating People, Schumer made the cut.

In addition to her comedy sketches that are raunchy but hilarious, Amy Schumer hit the big screen this year with Trainwreck. She is working on a new screenplay with BFF Jennifer Lawrence.

Entertainers know they've made the grade when asked to host SNL. Yes, Amy Schumer did that in 2015, too.

In recent days, Schumer has made news for posing nearly nude--wearing nothing but undies and a pair of heels--for the 2016 Pirelli calendar. Annie Liebovitz created the masterpiece.

Just today--in the aftermath of Wednesday's deadly massacre in San Bernardino, California, Amy Schumer posted a series of Tweets against gun violence.

Yes, there's way more to Amy Schumer than just her often-vile tongue. Barbara Walters clearly recognizes that, and surely others do, too.

In addition to Amy Schumer, fellow SNL alum Tracy Morgan also made the list of 2015's Most Fascinating People, as did ballet dancer Misty Copeland, UFC fighter Ronda Rousey, actor Bradley Cooper, fashion designer Donna Karan, and presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.

Are you surprised Amy Schumer made the list?
