Oprah Winfrey has reclaimed the top spot on Forbes annual Celebrity 100 List. The list ranks the most powerful celebrities. Oprah lost her #1 position on the list last year to Angelina Jolie. Angelina plunged to 18th on the list this year.
But despite their impressive debuts (Gaga hit the list in fourth place), Oprah Winfrey is the year's big winner. After being ousted by Angelina Jolie on last year's list (Jolie dropped to No. 18 this year), the Queen of all Media takes back her crown on Forbes' annual ranking of the world's ultra-famous. Winfrey earned $315 million over the past 12 months.
Oprah is followed by Beyonce, James Cameron, Lady Gaga, Tiger Woods, Britney Spears, U2, Sandra Bullock, Johnny Depp and Madonna. Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have joined the list year. Kristen is 66th and Pattinson is 50th. Justin Bieber did not make the list despite his Twitter power.
