Despite recent criticisms her star power might be fading, local TV icon Oprah Winfrey's influence still reigns supreme, at least according to Forbes magazine.

For the second year in a row, Winfrey topped Forbes list of the most influential celebs. The magazine bases its ratings on how celebs pit against each other in the categories of pay, internet searches, press ranking, TV coverage, E-score and name.

Winfrey topped the list, finishing ahead of Tiger Woods, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce Knowles and David Beckham. She earned $275 million last year according to Forbes, which also calls the star "intelligent" and "influential."

Several newspapers, including the New York Times, The Independent, and Sun-Times columnists Bill Zwecker and Robert Feder recently examined whether Winfrey was losing her crown after statistics showed a drop in TV ratings and magazine sales.
