Forbes’ annual celebrity rankings use a combination of earnings and fame to determine the order of the list.

Oprah had slipped to number two on the rankings last year, with Angelina Jolie taking the top spot. This year, however, Angelina fell 17 spots to number 18. Beyoncé, moved up from the 4th spot to the 2nd, while hubby Jay-Z moved up from the 32nd spot to number 15.

Despite all of the publicly known drama Sandra Bullock suffered this year, she took one of the biggest leaps, moving into the 8th spot from number 92 in 2009. Not to mention she holds the highest paid actress title this year.

James Cameron made his debut on the list this year taking the 3rd spot. This is no surprise considering he directed the highest grossing film of all time, Avatar.

Another newcomer to the list this year at number 4 was pop sensation Lady Gaga, whose outlandish and edgy outfits and videos have made her a most talked about celebrity.
