Television talk show queen Oprah Winfrey was named the most powerful celebrity in the world Wednesday as Forbes.com released its annual list of the top movers and shakers in the entertainment industry.

Winfrey, 59, who was ranked in the top spot despite her signature daytime television show “Oprah” ending its 25-year run in 2011, headed a 100-strong list that featured six women in the top 10.

In second place was eccentric pop star Lady Gaga, who earned $80 million in the same period, while Hollywood titan Steven Spielberg was third. The legendary director and producer earned a cool $100 million in the past year.
