Latest News: It's Rainer, but it doesn't pour

In the closing hours of DeathList 2014, Luise Rainer, has pushed the success total into double figures. Rainer, a multiple Oscar winning actress, passed away at the age of 104 suffering from pneumonia. Most of Rainerís movies were made in the 1930ís and she left Hollywood in the early 1940s and remained relatively low profile for the rest of her life. Somewhat surprisingly, Rainer was making her first appearance on DeathList this year, but was selected at number 8.


The DeathList 2015

The DeathList committee has once again called upon numerous sources of information to compile its list of 50 celebrities that it considers most likely to die in 2015. A quick recap on the DeathList rules: Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future and only half of the candidates can have appeared on the previous yearís list. DeathList 2014 ended with a disappointing total of 10 successes so we will be looking for DeathList 2015 to show some better form.
