Shakeup Atop Annual Rankings for Most Powerful Celebrity

Jun 29, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The top spot of Forbes magazine’s annual list of the most powerful celebrities has changed hands, reports the Hollywood Reporter.

Oprah Winfrey has returned to the top of the list, bumping Angelina Jolie, who held the No. 1 spot last year.

Winfrey earned $315 million from June 1, 2009, through June 1, 2010, according to the list, which combines earnings with measures of celebrity, such as how many times a person is mentioned on TV, to figure out his or her ranking, the story says.

Because of the buzz measure, singer Beyonce Knowles placed second on the list, although her earnings, $87 million, were far below Winfrey’s, the story says. Jolie, by the way, slipped to No. 18 on the list with earnings of $20 million.


  1. How was Angelina Jolie number one last year anyway? No one ever wants to see a movie if she’s the star. And don’t say “Wanted” because that was a high-octane action flick with a great ensemble cast, starring James MacAvoy.

  2. Cool beans. Angelina Jolie is amazing. A person I both respect and love. Can’t wait for her new movie. The pop art painting I own of her is well good and will be hung on my wall forever!

  3. Amiable brief and this post helped me alot in my college assignement. Thank you as your information.

  4. Love all the opinions expressed here! How is everyone? Love how everyone expresses whatr they feel 🙂
