8. Miranda Priestley, The Devil Wears Prada
Most of us have had a bad boss in our work history, but most of them would pale in comparison to the head of Runway Magazine. Meryl Streep earned one of her many Oscar nominations for this role that is just so deliciously cruel that she couldn’t possibly exist in real life. Except that she’s apparently based on a real person. Which just makes the character all the more fascinating to watch, honestly. From biting insults to just the right degree of eyebrow furrowing, Miranda Priestly is a villain, but a very fun one. As long as you don’t have to get her coffee in the morning.
