Anne Sweeney

The Hollywood Reporter released its annual "Women in Entertainment Power 100" ranking, which the publication described as a reflection of "a TV industry in flux, ongoing volatility at the film studios, and the females behind (and in front of) every last big deal in town." 

At its apex sits Anne Sweeney, Co-Chairperson of Disney Media Networks and President of the Disney/ABC Television Group. Unsurprisingly, the top ten consists of behind-the-scenes power players like NBCUniversal Chairwoman Bonnie Hammer (#2) and A+E Networks President and CEO Nancy Dubuc (#3), though there is one household name in Oprah Winfrey (#8), listed as Chairwoman, CEO, and Chief Creative Office of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. 

At the breakfast event to celebrate the Power 100, Winfrey was bestowed the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award. Lansing said of Winfrey, "What I really admire is her philanthropy, in particular as she uses it to help young girls. That is one of the most wonderful things anyone can do."

"Box-Office Queens" Jennifer Lawrence, Sandra Bullock, and Melissa McCarthy, who made the studios a ton of money this year in female-centric films like The Hunger Games: Catching FireGravity, and The Heat, are represented at #11 on the list.
