Oprah Winfrey powerfull star

Oprah Winfrey is queen. The talk show hostess reigns atop Forbes' annual list of The World's Most Powerful Celebrities.

Winfrey, who earned $315 million over the past year, regained the No. 1 spot from Angelina Jolie, who fell to No. 18 in the ranking of the richest.

Beyoncé rose two notches to No. 2, raking in $87 million. Jay-Z must be happy, though he's at 15.

James Cameron came in at 3, which isn't a big surprise since his sci-fi hit Avatar was the highest-grossing film ever. Other women in the top 10 were pop shocker Lady Gaga (4), Britney Spears (6), Sandra Bullock (8) and good old Madonna (10). Rounding out the fattest bank accounts: Johnny Depp (9) and the entire band U2 (7).

And despite all his personal travails, Tiger Woods still made the No. 5 slot. The golfer earned $105 million between June 2009 and June 2010.

Next year will likely be a different story for Tiger, the mag predicts.
