Forbes released its list of the 10 highest-paid women in Hollywood, with Oprah Winfrey once again landing on top.

Despite her struggling OWN network, Winfrey earned an estimated $165 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

Most of that cash comes from the shows she produces through her Harpo production company (“Rachael Ray”), as well as her magazine.

Next on the list is Britney Spears, who made approximately $58 million in that time period, mostly through her Femme Fatale album and tour.

Behind Spears is Taylor Swift, who earned $57 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

She’s the youngest woman on the list.
