Tree Hill was home to many interesting, awesome, and insane characters. We can’t rank everyone (because who wants to remember people like Felix or Anna) and we all know the crazy chicks like Nanny Carrie and Katie belong in jail, not on this list. Here’s to the main/big supporting characters that made One Tree Hill a show we never wanted to stop watching.
20. Victoria Davis
So about 90% of the time Bitchtoria sucked, but she did redeem herself in those later seasons by being there for Brooke. She may have been a bitch, but she was our favorite bitch.
19. Deb Scott
Deb was kind of a hot mess, but then again who wouldn't be after being married to Dan Scott? Her drug and alcohol problems taken care of, she still wasn't the best mom (who dates their kids friends?!) but she did save Jamie and Haley, and thank God for that.
18. Quentin Fields
Q started out as an asshole (sound familiar?) but turned into a big softie, who helped Nathan with his basketball comeback and was an adorable older best friend to Jamie. We all sobbed pretty hard when we lost him.
17. Jake Jagielski
Poor Jake. He could have treated Peyton well, but we all know that Leyton was the OTP. He really was a great guy, plus he was super hot and a really sweet single father. We still feel for him.
16. Clay Evans
Clay was OTH attempt at replacing Lucas. It didn't really work, but he was an okay guy. He helped Nathan, which is why he makes this list. He also had an insane amount of drama that kept things interesting, I.E. a stalker who looks like his dead wife shooting him and Quinn. Oh. and the time he forgot he had a kid.
15. Quinn James
And then there was Quinn, sent to replace Peyton. She didn't. She was another one of Haley's siblings (how many did she have?!) but not the slutty one, Taylor we're looking at you. Quinn was goofy and while she didn't make up for Peyton leaving, she was actually a very sweet character and made us laugh.
14. Antwon "Skills" Taylor
Skills was Naley's biggest fan (after us). While he didn't always make good choices for himself (See: His relationship with Deb) he was always a good friend, there to lend advice when one of the Scott boys was being stupid or when one of the many women of Tree Hill needed help. Remember when he was the Baby Proofer?
13. Millicent Huxtable
Millie as Brooke's assistant/employee = an incredible person who was always there for Brooke. Millie the model = awful and we should all forget her cocaine phase. Thank god Mouth and her got back together and she became normal again.
12. Whitey Durham
Do coaches like Whitey exist in real life? He really cared about Lucas and Nathan, hated Dan like we all did, and taught everyone some valuable life lessons, while being hilarious and as adorable as a tough basketball coach can be.
11. Marvin "Mouth" McFadden
Mouth might not have been the best dancer, but he was a great friend to Lucas Scott and the other guys of the River Court. But it's his friendship with Brooke over the years that made us truly love him.
10. Jamie Scott
Jamie circa season 5 is the cutest thing ever. He got to be buddies with everyone: his dad, his uncle Luke, his uncle Skills, his godmomma Brooke, Q...basically you were only cool on this show if Jamie liked you. Which is probably why we started to really like Dan Scott, since Jamie loved him so much.
9. Dan Scott
Dan was the greatest antagonist this show ever saw, and there were a ton of crazy people (Psycho Derek and Xavier, to name a few). You loved to hate him. He was a terrible father, a murderer, a corrupt politician/businessman, and all around kind of insane. But at the end of the day, he was Dan Scott and no one was better than Dan Scott...
8. Keith Scott
...except for Keith Scott, his big brother. AKA Lucas' surrogate father. Since, you know, Dan ditched Karen after he got her pregnant, went and got Deb pregnant and then married her. Keith kept it classy, which had to be hard with Dan as your brother, and took care of Lucas and Karen. We're STILL not over his death. When he came back in season 9, we wept.
7. Karen Roe
Karen was by far the most responsible parent to the teenagers of Tree Hill. She showed Dan Scott she didn't need a man for her life to turn out great and she definitely got the easier Scott boy because of it. Karen always gave advice that we could actually use in our own lives.
6. Julian Baker
Any guy that can take care of Brooke Davis and love her unconditionally deserves to be in the Top 10. Julian might have come into OTH with not-so-wonderful intentions, but he proved that he was the perfect man for Brooke and we've been in love with him ever since.
5. Peyton Sawyer
Peyton was probably the angstiest cheerleader to ever exist and that's what we loved about her. She was broody (for good reasons) and dark at times, but way deep down, she never gave up on love. She got her man in the end (becoming Peyton Scott!).
4. Haley James Scott
Haley has always been one of the best characters (season 2 Haley aside) to ever grace our screens. She made Nathan the man he is today. She was a great momma. She always stuck up for her friends and didn't care what people thought of her, I mean she wore that poncho all the time in high school.
3. Nathan Scott
Nathan proved that jock-assholes can become loving husbands and amazing fathers. Also, Nathan kind of became the dorky guy who thinks Shrek is a good movie to have a favorite quote from.
2. Lucas Scott
Now, we're still very mad at Lucas for leaving, and he almost came after Nathan, but let's be honest. Without Lucas Scott, there would be no One Tree Hill. Even after he left, he still was mentioned in almost every episode. Talk about never getting over a guy.
1. Brooke Davis
Broke is the ultimate OTH character. She changed from party-girl cheerleader to power-house Brooke, running (then losing, then gaining back, then losing again) her own company flawlessly while handling jerk boyfriends, crazy parents, and falling in love with an amazing man. Brooke is the girl we always wanted to become. Thanks for the memories B. Davis!
Logan, because he stole the show in season 9 with his cuteness.
Sam Walker, because that poor girl was all kind of messed up and Brooke still took he under her wing and made us care about her. But then, she went and left. Can we quote Peyton and say People Always Leave.
Chris Keller because even though he attempted to break up Naley, he kept us entertained. Who didn't love it when he came back in season 4 and called Haley "plump", only to have her say she's pregnant and he's an asshole. Classic Chris Keller.

Actresses Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence were among the big winners at the 2015 People's Choice Awards on Wednesday (07Jan15) after taking home multiple honours. Woodley picked up awards for Favorite Action Movie for Divergent and Favorite Movie Duo with onscreen love interest Theo James, while the actress' hit teen cancer film, The Fault in Our Stars, scored her the title of Favorite Dramatic Movie at the prizegiving in Los Angeles.
Lawrence landed two acting accolades - Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Action Movie Actress.
Unfortunately, neither of the leading ladies were present at the Nokia Theatre to accept their awards.
Robert Downey, Jr. was another double winner, claiming the Favorite Movie Actor and Favorite Dramatic Movie Actor prizes, while Angelina Jolie's Maleficent was named Favorite Family Movie and Favorite Movie overall.
Long-running medical drama Grey's Anatomy earned the most trophies of the night, including Favorite Network TV Drama, Favorite Dramatic TV Actor and Actress for Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo, and former cast member Sandra Oh was named the Favorite TV Character We Miss Most.
Other champions included Castle's Nathan Filion and Stana Katic (Favorite Crime Drama, TV Actor and Actress) and British singer Ed Sheeran, who nabbed the Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Album titles.
Meanwhile, Ben Affleck was saluted as the Favorite Humanitarian for his work with the Eastern Congo Initiative, the organisation he set up in 2010 to help residents of the war-torn region.
Amy Adams presented her Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice co-star Affleck with his prize, which he admitted was a trophy he never expected to receive.
He explained, "This is incredibly humbling... I've been called a lot of things in my life, but I'm not sure until recently humanitarian has ever been one of them. To be honest, it's something that I have a hard time accepting, because I've had the privilege of working alongside so many incredible people in Congo and all over the world, who I assure you are far more deserving."
Affleck continued, "Sometimes the world is a scary and terrible place and bad things happen... the one way to combat the terrible things we see is to bring a little bit of kindness and show that our country is about reaching out and helping our fellow man.
"This is an incredible honour - I can't say that I'm deserving, but I'm privileged to be among the many, many, many people who have done such great work."
Awards co-hosts Anna Faris and Allison Janney kicked off the show with a skit featuring Faris' husband Chris Pratt, who jokingly embellished his success after blockbuster movie Guardians of the Galaxy last summer (14), surrounded by piles of movie scripts as Faris attempted to convince him to take care of their young son, Jack.

Ryder and Wright, along with True Detective director Cary Fukunaga, will preside over the U.S. Dramatic Jury competition, while Interstellar co-writer Jonathan Nolan and actress/writer Brit Marling are part of the jury for the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize, which recognises science in film.

The annual festival, which was founded by Robert Redford, runs from 22 January to 1 February (15) in Utah.
Iconic celebrity photographer Phil Stern has died, aged 95. The snapper, responsible for capturing intimate portraits of movie legends such as Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, died on Saturday (13Dec14) in California. He reportedly suffered from emphysema and congestive heart failure, according to The Los Angeles Times.
Stern began his photography career as a teen, when he worked as a police snapper for the New York City Police Department.
At the age of 21, he enlisted in the U.S. Army to become a combat photographer in the Second World War, capturing iconic images at the front lines. Stern was honoured with a Purple Heart for his services.
Later, he moved to Los Angeles and worked for such magazines as Life and Look, honing his ability to capture one-of-a-kind shots of Hollywood's elite, including Monroe, Dean, John Wayne, Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Judy Garland, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart.
Stern worked as a special still cameraman on films such as Guys and Dolls and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
He also took his camera into music studios while jazz greats like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie recorded their songs, and contributed images for the album covers of artists including Liza Minnelli and Count Basie.
Actor Oscar Isaac is set to bulk up and play it bad after landing the villainous role of Apocalypse in the next X-Men movie. The Inside Llewyn Davis star recently wrapped shooting on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the highly-anticipated seventh instalment in the popular George Lucas film franchise, and now he is joining another sci-fi blockbuster series.
Isaac will portray the titular comic book character in X-Men: Apocalypse, the most powerful mutant in the X-Men universe.
He joins a cast which includes Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, James McAvoy as Charles Xavier and Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, while Channing Tatum is rumoured to be making his debut as Gambit in the forthcoming film.
Bryan Singer will return to direct and production is due to begin early next year (15), ahead of a May, 2016 release.
So you might have heard: there was a One Tree Hill reunion this weekend. In Paris. The gang got back together for an OTH convention hosted by Guest Events called, "From Wilmington To Paris 2." Should have been from Tree Hill to Paris, but we guess it's cool since it gave us the best pictures to ever grace our Instagrams.
Our favorite Tree Hill girls finally got back together again and gave us OTH fans photographic evidence:
Basically the best.

Ouch. Is that a burn to Lucas/Chad I see Sophia Bush? Probs not, because she's amazing. And the sweetest girl ever. Plus, we think everyone secretly loved Dan so much because he was the funniest character to hate. And he's hot.

There was a Naley moment. I repeat, A NALEY MOMENT HAPPENED:

Jessica Chastain felt more than comfortable working with writer/director Ned Benson on their new movie The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby, because the filmmaker is her ex-boyfriend. The famously private Zero Dark Thirty star reveals she remained friends with Benson long after their romantic relationship ended, and once she found fame with her breakthrough role in 2011's The Help, she wanted to do what she could to get his feature film debut to the big screen.
Chastain also helped her close pal, Teeth actress Jess Weixler, land a role in the film, too.
She explains, "I really believe in him and I met him because I won tickets to the Malibu Film Festival... and I saw a short film he did; I thought he was so talented.
"We became friends for four years, then we started a relationship and he'd written this film. The relationship ended, but I don't believe that love ends; I think it just kind of transforms, but never goes away, so, to be able to shine the spotlight that was on me, and say, 'Look at my friends', because also my best friend Jess Weixler plays my sister in the movie, and just to say, like, 'How incredible are these people?', it was a very emotional experience to make it."
Chastain's star power also attracted the likes of James McAvoy, Viola Davis and William Hurt to sign up for the drama, about a young couple whose marriage is rocked by a life-changing event.
Pioneering country guitarist Velma Smith has died at the age of 87. The musician passed away on Thursday (31Jul14) in Madison, Tennessee.
Smith began performing on a local Kentucky radio station with her sister Mildred at the age of 12 and later went on to play with the likes of Ernest Tubb, Carl Smith and Roy Acuff.
However, it wasn't until the late 1950s that her career really took off as she became the first female rhythm guitar player to perform on records cut in Nashville, Tennessee.
She worked with artists such as Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings and Ray Price and her song credits include Hank Locklin's Please Help Me, I'm Falling in 1960 and Skeeter Davis' The End of the World in 1962.
She was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville in January (14) as part of the Class of 2014, which also featured Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy and Randy Bachman from Bachman Turner Overdrive.
Smith was married to Price's pal, fiddle player-turned-producer James 'Hal' Smith, from 1948 until his death in 2008.
"Any good actress wants to be Viola Davis when she grows up... I'm trying to get there." Oscar winner Octavia Spencer is full of praise for her The Help co-star, who she reunites with in new James Brown biopic Get On Up.
The cast of the Harry Potter films reunited in Florida on Wednesday (18Jun14) to unveil a new theme park attraction inspired by the wizard series. Helena Bonham Carter and Tom Felton, who played villains Draco Malfoy and Bellatrix Lestrange in the franchise, were among the stars who came together at the VIP preview of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley at the Universal Orlando park.
Matthew Lewis, James and Oliver Phelps, Robbie Coltrane and Warwick Davis were among the other castmembers who turned out for the event, which marks the upcoming launch of the theme park attraction on 8 July (14).
Felton said, "It's great seeing everyone again. We've all been catching up - I love it."
Leading actors Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson did not attend the event. The final film in the eight-part series was released in 2011.
