Oprah Winfrey tops THR Power 100 roster
"The decision to place Oprah at the top of the list was based on her dizzying array of Oprah-branded media and her immense cultural influence," THR editor Elizabeth Guider said. "Today's most powerful woman in entertainment might just be the most influential woman in America."
Last year O was No. 6, so that's a pretty big jump, and she did do a lot to get Barack Obama elected, so that just goes to show you the kind of clout she's got. According to the magazine the rest of the Top 10 are:
Anne Sweeney, Disney Media Networks co-chairman (No. 2); Amy Pascal, chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group and co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment (No. 3); Nancy Tellem, president of CBS Paramount Network Television Entertainment Group (No. 4); Stacey Snider, co-chairman and CEO of DreamWorks (No. 5); Bonnie Hammer, president of USA Network and Sci Fi Channel (No. 6); Judy McGrath, chairman and CEO of MTV Networks (No. 7); Mary Parent, chairwoman of the Worldwide Motion Picture Group at MGM (No. 8); Dana Walden, chairman of 20th Century Fox Television (No. 9); and Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment (No. 10).
