Oprah tops most powerful woman list

Here’s something we didn’t already know. Oprah has been voted the most powerful woman in American entertainment.

Yes the big O topped the Hollywood Reporter’s list moving up from #6 in 2007.

“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.”
