John’s way more knowledgeable about this crap, but I’ll give it a shot. These are both families that became famous as a group, and families that became famous individually.
10. The Osmonds
I mean yeah, why not? They were pretty popular and seem to have lingering celebrity. There are a lot of them, actually, but the only ones that really matter are Donny and Marie. And Marie just barely hanging on.
9. The Garlands
Judy and Liza. They’ve both won Academy Awards and have left a lasting mark on American pop culture. So, there you go.
8. The Voights
Kind of creepy picture, isn’t it? Well it’s a kind of creepy family. I was like “what?” Jon Voight, legendary film icon, is the father of Angelina Jolie and her crazy brother. That’s crazy. And Angelina is married to Brad Pitt, right? So Jon Voight is the patriarch of one of the most powerful Hollywood families. And they’re slowly building up an army of African children.
7. The Sutherlands
One is famous for a prophetic film career, the other for one of the most successful TV shows in recent memory. Apparently when Kiefer spoiled some of the plot of a season of 24 to Donald, he became very upset. Now that’s what I call fathering.
6. The Douglases
Big Mike and Papa Kirk both have a number of immortal films under their belts. But the real question is: could Spartacus take Gordon Gekko? Speaking of Wall Street…
5. The Sheens
Martin and his sons Charlie and Emilio. I don’t know why Emilio wouldn’t want the power of the Sheen name, but maybe that’s why we don’t see much of him anymore. Martin and Charlie starred in two of the best Vietnam War movies ever made. Joe Estevez, Martin’s brother, even got in on Apocalypse Now, he did the narration.
4. The Bridges
Another father with two famous sons. Lloyd, Jeff and Beau are all great, and should work with each other whenever possible. Well, Lloyd Bridges passed away, but come on you sons! Jeff, get your ass on My Name is Earl like John suggested, that would be sweet.
3. The Jacksons
The Jackson 5 were pretty famous, then Michael stole the spotlight. Then he made some great music. Then he turned into a white woman and started creeping everyone out. Why bother, you all know the story. This is a different Randy Jackson, by the way.
2. The Osbournes
What could be healthier that surrounding an aged bat-eater’s family with cameras? A lot of stuff. But if we learned anything from this dysfunctional pack, it’s that at the end of the day, you’ve always got the love and support of the ones you love.
1. The Baldwins
The most powerful family in the world. Bush who? Kennedy what? The Baldwin brothers reign supreme in the world of celebrity. Alec, their representative and leader, reigns supreme over the world of acting. Daniel, William and Stephen surely have things to be proud of as well. If you do not respect the Baldwins, you must fear their wrath.
